I typically start AP Calc by giving 2-3 MC questions from past exams. It’s a way to expose the kids to the kinds of questions they’ll see without any repercussions if they get a question wrong. And it gives me a feel for what they’re retaining and what they’re not.
The kids were doing really well today. By the time we had gone through four, I asked, “You guys are on fire today, can we do one more?”
One kid–whose grade is not the highest–hollered, “Yeah! Give us one more!”
