Connections in calculus lead to comprehension! Deepen the understanding of your students by connecting major themes in calculus with roller coasters, trains, and treats. Sounds fun, but these are not fluff activities. Who has time for that??!!?! Additional connections utilizing technology will be shared along with strategies to assist your struggling students. Feel free to bring and share any activity you have that emphasizes a connection in calculus. You will leave with a broadened vision of teaching that will deepen student learning and inspire further explorations. Our presenter, Stacey McMullen, taught mathematics for over 19 years before she finally got the opportunity to teach Advanced Placement Calculus. She always loved teaching high school math, but after her first day of teaching AP Calculus, she thought, "I was born to do this!" For the past 17 years, Ms. McMullen has taught AP Calculus in two districts in Texas with vastly different student demographics; providing students with the necessary mathematical background and resources to be successful in AP Calculus. In addition, Ms. McMullen wrote the calculus curriculum for one district, taught and trained vertical teaching teams, and did hours upon hours of tutoring. Through her teaching experiences, she has developed a wide variety of strategies and techniques that she is sharing with her colleagues across the nation.
