Calculus BC compatible with AP* Details
Thinkwell's Calculus BC Compatible with AP* Calculus lays the foundation for success because, unlike a traditional textbook, students actually like using it. Thinkwell works with the learning styles of students who have found that traditional textbooks are not effective. Watch one Thinkwell video lecture and you'll understand why Thinkwell works better.
Comprehensive Video Tutorials
We've built Calculus BC around more than 100 multimedia tutorials that provide dozens of hours of instructional material. Thinkwell offers a more engaging, more effective way for you to learn.
Instead of reading dense chunks of text from a printed book, you can watch video lectures filled with illustrations, examples, and even humor. Students report learning more easily with Thinkwell than with traditional textbooks.
Interactive Exercises with Feedback
There are hundreds of exercise items with fully worked-out solutions and explanations. Each video topic has corresponding exercises to test your understanding.
Test your understanding with hundreds of exercises that are automatically graded. Your results are available immediately, including fully worked-out solutions and explanations for each exercise. You can work on the exercises at the computer or print them out to work on later. Access your cumulative results anytime.
Review Notes and More
While the video lectures are the heart of Thinkwell products, we also offer concise, illustrated review notes, a glossary, transcripts of the video lectures, and links to relevant websites. All of these materials may be viewed online, and the notes and transcripts may be printed and kept for reference.
