Students in a calculus class

Advanced Placement Calculus AB
Instructor Jill Lane


The applications of calculus are all around us. In the speed and acceleration of a car, in the maximum profit for a company, even in a Krispy Kreme doughnut! Students have lots of fun using calculus to find the volume of the doughnut, particularly when it comes to eating their materials.
