AP Calculus AB

- Jeff Lanctot

Tuition: $775

Calculus has been one of the most influential ideas in human history.  Its impact on our daily lives is incalculable with most changes in the past 300 years coming from technological and scientific developments fundamentally based upon calculus.  Calculus pulls together many of topics studied in previous math courses and transforms them from mechanical, seemingly unrelated topics into powerful, interrelated tools for analyzing real-life situations – situations that involve motion and change.  This course provides the foundation on which we can truly understand and advance the world around us and prepares students for the AP Calculus AB Exam. 

AP Calculus BC

- Amelia Chan

Tuition: $775

AP Calculus BC is equivalent to a two semesters college calculus course. Topics include functions, limits and continuity, derivatives, integrals, differential equations, parametric equations, polar coordinates, vector-valued functions, infinite sequences and series. The course will focus on applying the skills and concepts of calculus to modeling and solving problems across multiple representations. It includes specific preparation for the AP BC Calculus exam. Students will practice AP-style questions, to familiarize themselves with the format and grading techniques.

AP Calculus BC

- Linda Henderson

Tuition: $700

AP Calculus BC covers much of a second semester of a college-level course in the Calculus and is the “continuation” of The College Board’s AP Calculus AB course.  Students are expected to come into this AP Calculus BC course with knowledge and understanding of all AP Calculus AB concepts.  AP Calculus BC covers four units beyond the AP Calculus AB curriculum as prescribed by The College Board.  These units focus on exploring advanced methods of integration as well as vectors, polar graphs, parametric equations, and polynomial approximations and series.  Investigations are included throughout the course as enrichment and extension of the material required for the AP exam. 

AP Chemistry

- Mark Kernion

Tuition: $875

This A.P. Chemistry course is designed to be the equivalent of the general chemistry courses usually taken during a student’s first year in college and focuses on the big ideas and important scientific practices in chemistry.  As such, the student should attain a depth of understanding concerning fundamental chemical concepts and a reasonable competence in solving chemical problems with which they could be associated.  Additionally, this course will help develop the student’s scientific skills as a substantial portion of the course (25%) is spent on hands-on laboratory work using the instructor's-designed homeschooler AP Chemistry lab kit and manual.

This course features a live teaching session once per week to provide a learning connection between the students and the instructor not always present in online chemistry courses.  All live sessions are recorded and accessible for those students not able to be present for these sessions.

AP Comparative Government and Politics

- Julia Reed

Tuition: $720

AP Comparative Government and Politics is a dynamic class for all students, especially those looking to understand the inter workings and dynamic nature of international politics.  

This course will first and foremost prepare the students to be successful on the AP Comparative Government and Politics exam. The tests and written work will be formatted in a similar manner to allow them practice and refinement over the year. The course will, on its broadest level, consider "ideas and their consequences." Ideas and worldviews are at the root of how everyone sees the world (metaphysics), and gains knowledge and understands truth (epistemology). An individual and a government's view on these things influences their decisions and ultimately lives and countries are impacted.

Today's world is highly interdependent and global in nature. Students will learn to think globally and will explore the impact of countries' interactions. Students will learn, not only how our country interacts and affects the world, but also how other nation-states, as well as non-governmental organizations, shape our world. We will compare and contrast ideologies, governments, and policies in order to grasp the significance of the current world political scene and analyze its impact.

We will focus primarily on the following countries: the United Kingdom, Russia, China, Mexico, Nigeria, and Iran. These countries will not only prepare the students for the exam but will give them a broad understanding of the major political systems.

This course will be exciting, connecting political ideas with real-world realities. Students will be assessed through tests, short papers, various assignments, and class discussion.  We will meet every week for lecture/class discussion.  We will use Canvas as our course platform (password protected).    Additionally, we will have a time to meet to discuss current affairs and developing news in our key countries.  Throughout the year we will have guest speakers, who will come to talk to us about real life experiences in these countries.

AP European Hist

- Michael Munson

Tuition: $775

 

 AP European History is a high level academic study of modern European civilization from its origins in the fifteenth century to the present. This course is the equivalent of an introductory college or university survey of modern European history. AP Euro students will explore, analyze, and understand the significance of major European historical developments from the late Medieval Era to the present. By coming to know the history Modern Europe, students will be able to describe, explain, and discuss how the world we currently recognize, came to be. They will understand how the emergence of Modern Europe had significant influence on the world we know today. The will also come to know ways in which that influence continues and allows us insights on what the future may bring.  

Below is the introduction of AP European History provided by the The College Board. 

In AP European History, students investigate significant events, individuals, developments, and processes from approximately 1450 to the present. Students develop and use the same skills, practices, and methods employed by historians: analyzing primary and secondary sources; developing historical arguments; making historical connections; and utilizing reasoning about comparison, causation, and continuity and change over time. The course also provides seven themes that students explore throughout the course in order to make connections among historical developments in different times and places: interaction of Europe and the world, economic and commercial development, cultural and intellectual development, states and other institutions of power, social organization and development, national and European identity, and technological and scientific innovations.

AP European Hist

- Meredith Noah

AP Human Geography

- Carol Ann Gillespie

Tuition: $900

AP Human Geography is a course sometimes called "the gateway to AP testing." It is a freshman-level college course that is taught asynchronously (totally online with no "live" component) using my weekly YouTube lectures and assignments that include field trips, map analysis, and interpretation of models, charts, graphs, and other spatial data. It covers the central themes of Population, City and Urban Areas, Agriculture, Political Geography, Economic Geography, Culture, Development, and Spatial Analysis. A previous study of geography (especially world regional) is useful but not a requirement for success in the course. Because the course is online, it is very hands-on and inquiry-bad, They will use geographic analysis to sole real-life problems through the use of case studies and activities that require them to apply geographic analysis.

AP Macroeconomics

- Daniel Burns

Tuition: $695

Are you the sort of person who likes to talk about the effects of government policies and what the government should or should not do? You may be a born economist. Macroeconomics is the part of economics that studies government actions and looks mostly at problems of the economy as a whole such as inflation, unemployment, recession, international trade, and long-term growth. We will specifically learn about economics theories of important economists from Adam Smith, to John Maynard Keynes, to Milton Friedman.

In this class, you will learn how to predict the effects of government actions. For example, "What happens to unemployment rates when the government raises the minimum wage or cuts taxes?"

You will learn the skills necessary for analyzing economics problems: how to use the vocabulary of economists, how to draw “supply” and “demand” curves, how to read economics graphs, how to pull the economy out of recessions or inflationary spirals and how to promote long-term economic growth.

The most fun part of the class is the economics simulation gamesEach game will be played twice (each run lasting two weeks), and there will be four games during the year.

AP Macroeconomics

- Howard Richman

Tuition: $695

Are you the sort of person who likes to talk about the effects of government policies and what the government should or should not do? You may be a born economist. Macroeconomics is the part of economics that studies government actions and looks mostly at problems of the economy as a whole such as inflation, unemployment, recession, international trade, and long-term growth. 

AP Microeconomics

- Daniel Burns

Tuition: $450

Available in both full-year and one-semester versions, AP Microeconomics is the study of how the economy functions from the perspective of individual businesses and consumers. We will consider topics such as the basics of supply and demand in a free market, how businesses operate when faced with different forms of marketplace competition, how companies make decisions about how much labor to hire, the benefits of international trade, and the proper role of government in the economy. Some examples of fun topics we will cover include:

  • Using elasticity concepts to combat child labor
  • Why the government wants to break up Google's advertising business
  • Price fixing arrangements in the British toy industry
  • Game theory and a prisoner's dilemma simulation 
  • Prediction markets in sports and politics 

If you are interested in business or government, or just want a good foundation in economic principles, this will be a great course for you!

This course will prepare students well for the twin goals of AP Exam/college prep, and understanding statistics in the world around them. Everyone uses statistics— we consume them through advertising, healthcare decisions, personal decision-making, playing games, and in nearly every field of study, from liberal arts to STEM, as well as in most professions. Students should expect to budget 1-2 hours per day for this course. For highly independent learners, there is also an asynchronous option available, for completing the course in just one semester. Last year, students in this section scored a "5" on the AP exam at more than double the global rate.

 

AP US Government

- Daniel Burns

Tuition: $695

Update 8/28: There's still space for four more students. Class starts September 6th!

My goal for this class is not only that students will excel on the AP U.S. Government exam, but that they will become engaged citizens and informed voters. We will discuss the big issues of freedom, opportunity, security, and equality and how they are influenced through the political process on a daily basis. I also hope to instill appreciation for the incredible heritage of liberty and representative democracy the founders gave us.

We like to have fun along the way! Games that help you apply civil liberties to specific scenarios are far more interesting than simply memorizing the Bill of Rights. We’ll take a virtual video tour of the Supreme Court. You’ll research TV ads from previous presidential campaigns to discuss which ones were effective and which were not. You will have the opportunity to watch Mr. Smith Goes to Washington for bonus points during the Congress lesson. 

AP US Government

- Michael Munson

Tuition: $750

AP U.S. Government and Politics is a college-level full-year course that will prepare students for success on the AP Exam (in early May 2024). AP GoPo provides students with the content knowledge and reasoning skills that are the foundation of thoughtful and meaningful understanding of the processes of American Government and the political narratives that influence public opinion, election outcomes, and the creation of government policy. This course is a political science that explores the constitutional system and political culture of the United States. Students develop a deep understanding of American foundational documents, the reasoning and impact of significant Supreme Court decisions, the evolution of civil rights and liberties, and processes through which the ideals of American citizens influence government actions. By the end of this course students will be able to analyze and explain historical and contemporary political events by using the same political reasoning skills applied by professional political scientists.

AP US History

- Daniel Burns

Tuition: $695

AP U.S. History is not just about learning facts, but about analyzing evidence to reach conclusions. Just as professional historians evaluate a range of sources for significance and credibility, as an APUSH student you will have the opportunity to sort through evidence from primary sources, secondary sources, and our textbook to argue for your positions. What do you think about the transcendentalist literary authors? Did the South have the right to secede? What about Theodore Roosevelt’s Big Stick foreign policy? The basic idea is that APUSH students are doing history instead of just studying history.

The nuts and bolts of the course involve a variety of assignment types. These include reading primary and secondary sources, watching videos, and doing research online, as well as practice with AP-style multiple choice questions, short answer questions, essays, and document-based questions - all aimed at helping students ace the AP exam and master the content of a college-level U.S. History survey course.

AP US History

- Lisa Hawkins

Tuition: $829

NOTE: This course will include live virtual sessions during the second half of the class that will focus on APUSH test-taking skills.  We will focus on essay writing, and I will use my twelve-plus year experience of being an official AP grader to help students understand what's expected of them.  Time of class meetings will be determined after students communicate preferences of meeting times.

This course will cover the development of American history from its pre-colonial roots through recent developments. It will prepare students to take the AP US History exam in May. However, my goals for this course are more comprehensive than getting students ready to take the formal exam. I also hope to inspire and increase students’ love and appreciation for history, expand students’ capacity to think creatively and flexibly about critical issues, and communicate powerfully and compellingly.

Students will read primary and secondary source material, watch videos, listen to audio, and participate in discussions. They will have access to my college-level audio-visual presentations, which include both improving thinking, reading, and writing skills and covering the content of American history from origins into the 20th century. In addition, each student will learn to approach the various components of the AP exam. I offer prompt feedback to the students’ various assignments throughout the course.

AP US History

- Susan Richman

Tuition: $785

This class is now FILLED for the 2023-2024 school year-- audit students or 'wait list' students still accepted!

This AP US History course will thoroughly prepare students for the AP US History exam scheduled for May 10, 2024 at 8:00am. 

Class Description: This class will cover mainstream US History from early exploration and colonization to the present, using an online text, The American Yawp, as well as many original source documents, varied Internet resources, and the rich archive of material on our class site. Students will also listen to regularly scheduled history lectures produced by The Great Courses -- these are provided free to students via our class website. They also view the Biography of America lecture series, produced by Annenberg/CPB. Our class archives include all past original History Interviews, Biography Projects, History Film Reviews, Summer Book Reviews, 'History Happened Here' reviews,  past National History Day projects, and more, completed by past students-- new students are truly joining a long line of dedicated history explorers, and will add their work to our archives over the year. Students are also encouraged to use other outside sources (websites, videos, history-related novels, magazines, biographies, and visits to historical museums, etc.) for earning bonus points. Encouraging *student initiative* is a big part of my philosophy of teaching.

This course is reading and writing intensive-- and students regularly report that they gain a whole new level of appreciation of the complexities of our nation's history. And parents often report that their teens are ready to share at the dinner table about all the new things they are learning about! Join in and gain a new and deeper understanding of change over time.

AP World History

- Jessica Newman

Tuition: $775

This course will consist of content review (1200 C.E. to the present) through primary and secondary resources, video clips, and notes. Content will be assessed by stimulus based multiple choice questions which will prepare students for the AP exam multiple choice section. Students will also expand and improve their writing skills in preparation for the AP Exam's writing portion: 3 SAQs (Short Answer Questions), 1 DBQ (Document Based Question), and 1 LEQ (Long Essay Question). There will be a recorded & optional Zoom meeting once a week. This course is taught asynchronously, with work assigned Monday morning and due on Friday each week.  The assignments are related to the content we are studying and help students' historical thinking skills and writing skills. Students have opportunity to interact with each other through discussions and assignments.
