It is almost time for the advanced placement exams and my students are already nervous. I have sponsored a review day for many years with the support of my building principal. A substitute takes my place for a day and my advanced placement calculus students have calculus for an entire day! It is not as bad as it sounds. We prepare ahead by keeping a list of topics to review and questions to ask. We work as a study team and help each other to be prepared with sample exams and graphing calculator activities. To break up the day, I buy pizza for lunch and the kids bring drinks and dessert. We are exhausted at the end of the day, but the kids tell me it is worth it.
