Strategies for Success in AP Mathematics

beginning of content:

AP Chief Reader reports show that students often make the same errors and omissions on the AP Exam. In this workshop, you will learn how to help your students develop academic vocabulary, understand difficult text through close reading, and provide meaningful answers to difficult and complex questions. You will leave the workshop with strategies you can immediately implement in your AP curriculum.

Learning Outcomes

After attending this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Examine trends in the Chief Reader reports and develop a list of common student errors and omissions on the AP mathematics exams.
  • Help students articulate and support complex ideas through a discussion of prewriting and problem-solving strategies.
  • Create AP-style exam questions and rubrics to help prepare your students for the free-response questions.
