Calculus Project

The Orange County Calculus Project is an initiative to increase the number of students who enroll in and successfully complete AP Calculus. Completing AP Calculus in High School opens the gate for these students to enter the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

Selected students are grouped into a cohort and begin their journey with the Calculus Project the summer before entering 7th grade in preparation for Algebra 1 Honors. The program offers continued support and monitoring as they matriculate through AP Calculus. Students who participate in  Orange County Calculus Project are required to attend all of the summer preview courses. These courses prepare them for the subsequent math class by introducing students to the core mathematical concepts vital to their success. During the school year, these students are grouped in the same mathematics sections to foster peer-to-peer collaboration. They also receive tutoring free of charge.

The Calculus Project strengthens the relationships of the three groups of stakeholders vital to closing the achievement gap in mathematics: students, parents, and teachers.
