District Students score high in global testing

Scored on a 1-5 grade range, the AP Calculus  Exam questions measure students' understanding of the concepts of calculus, their ability to apply these concepts, and their ability to make connections among graphical, numerical, analytical, and verbal representations of mathematics, according to the College Board. Adequate preparation for the exam also includes a strong foundation in algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and elementary functions, though the course necessarily focuses on differential and integral calculus.

The seven students scored at or above the global average in every content subcategory, and four points above the global average on the multiple choice section without a calculator.

Students and scores are as follows:

Dennis Adcock: 5

Joe Garrison: 5

Sarah Johnson: 5

Greg Corson: 4

Kayla Jarrell: 4

Breslin Schroeder: 4

Luke Glover: 3 (calculus two)

Most colleges and universities give college credit for test scores that are three or above.
