In trying to bridge the gap between our textbooks and the AP Calculus expectations, I felt that another unit needed to be created. For this reason, I developed this "Intro. to Calc." unit that takes place directly after a short "prerequisites" unit and right before introducing actual differentiation rules. I felt as if concepts like tangent/secant lines went hand-in-hand with concepts like the Mean Value Theorem and could be introduced conceptually without getting bogged down in the mechanics of differentiation. By introducing these concepts, they became fair game to be spiraled throughout the year.
This is an assessment that can be given after the Intro. To Calc. series. It should be accompanied by various relevant released AP multiple choice questions (which I obviously cannot include). The lesson after this assessment should be on differentiation rules.
