Note: Our 2017 answer keys are now online!
A few days after each AP Calculus BC exam, the College Board releases the free response questions from the exam. They don’t release their very succinct answer keys for a few more weeks… so… I had my students make their own answer keys as well as screen recordings of their solutions!
All released free response questions and answer keys are online right here.
Here’s the direct link to the 2016 AP Calculus BC free response questions.
Here are the answer keys and videos that my students created:
