That email makes no sense. Send it again.

haha funny email is that a math student joke or is it real?

REAL

Virge I teach ap and have been watching your videos. They are great. I teach at a small school and I need more resources before this ap exam in may 2020. Can you help?

I would suggest that you definitely raid the dropbox Mark has created for the AP live. Tons of good stuff in there and as we move forward we will continue putting more in there for review purposes. Also I would encourage you to become part of the Facebook group — there’s over 4000 teachers there who post questions all the time and support each other by offering help / pedagogical ideas / things like that.

Ms. Cornelius,

If there is any way you’d be willing to share with me any review assignments, quizzes, or tests you use when in your counting methods unit, I’d be insanely appreciative. I bought your circuit training assignment on TpT and it’s exactly the mix of problems I’m looking for. I’ve already used them, and now I’m just looking for the fastest path towards an excellent test. I’m drowning in grading and final exam revision, and I do have an old test to use as a springboard, but your work is better.

Hi there! I am a student from Pennsylvania in my junior year of high school and I wanted to thank you for creating the lessons and reviews for AP calc on youtube. They have been a big help to me and everyone else and we appreciate all you and Mark do and i just wanted you to know we are all grateful.

Thank you!!

Hi! I’m a student from India and have been following your online AP classes for Calculus AB. They’re insanely helpful! I’m so grateful to you and Mark! I have a request: Is there any way you could do a class for plotting graphs for equations without a graphing calculator? I would really appreciate it! Thanks!

That is more of a precalculus skill and we we won’t have time to cover it before the exam. I am so sorry. You can use a graphing calculator in the exam though!

Hi Virge!

Thanks for work. Where do we find the shared dropbox for the AB review videos?

Thanks a lot!

This link is below each video. If you click the down arrow or “show more” you would have found it!

Hi Ms. Cornelius! I am a senior high school student and I’ve been struggling with some of your circuit training problems. I find that I’m doing the work correctly when I go over the work covered in the lesson but still can’t seem to find the answers (I’ve found most trouble with the MVT Circuit). Unfortunately, my high school teachers are not particularly helpful either. Are you sure there are no typos on your work? Thank you for all your help so far!

There are no typos. Email me at virginia.cornelius@gocommodores.org with the question that you are stuck on and the work you did and I will try to find your mistake.

Hi Ms. Cornelius,

I am a calculus teacher (AB). One topic that I had not covered with my students was derivatives/integrals involving inverse trig functions. Any insight on whether those will be tested this year. Should I make a video for my students to go over them, or just not worry about it?

P.S. Thanks for the work you are doing with CollegeBoard. I have been assigning the unit review videos to my students.

I would think that they could see it. Not 50% of the points but maybe 3% of the points. Derivative and antiderivative of inverse sine and inverse tangent.

Hi!

I am an AB student from Michigan and I have had a blast watching all the AP Live Videos! Thank you for working with College Board to put them on! They have been so helpful during this time, especially when my teacher has not been assigning review assignments leading up to the exam.

Thank you for reaching out! Good luck on Tuesday and remember no matter what happens — we are already proud of you!

Hi Ms. Cornelius!

I’m an AB Calculus student from Canada and I wanted to thank you and Mr. Kiraly for making such helpful videos. I’ve watched every one and I feel a lot more confident going into the exam. I really appreciate you guys! 🙂

Thank you! Do your best on Tuesday! ❤️

Dear Ms. Cornelius,

I just wanted to say thank you to you and Mr. Kiraly for all the videos you’ve put out! I was really worried going into the exam but your dropbox and these videos have been so helpful. I love watching you guys and the final review even made me tear up a bit with the ending. Once again thank you!

-Sophomore from San Diego

You’re welcome! And do your best on Tuesday!!

Hey Ms.Cornelius, thanks for all your funny calc jokes. I literally cried during the last AP Calc AB live, thank you so much for being so amazing! I love you and thank you once again!

all the best from Canada:)

Thank you Erin! Do your best today!

Ms. Cornelius! I thank you and Mr. Kiraly for your calculus videos. They were fun, entertaining, and informative. You guys did a fantastic job at teaching calculus in engaging way and filled in some gaps in my learning with concepts I was not 100% concrete with. It has truly been a journey from the beginning until today. Sending blessings to you and Mark. Loved the jokes, thought bubbles, and Mark’s many backgrounds 🙂 thank you again

Thanks so much for letting me know!

Hello! I’m a student from Seattle area and just wanted to say thank you and Mr. Kiraly for the videos. They were super helpful and helped clarify things that I didn’t understand from class. It was super fun to watch with all the jokes and made studying more fun! Thanks again!

Thanks for letting me know! Hope you felt confident on the exam!

Hi Ms. Cornelius!!

Thank you so so much for all the help from the AP videos on Youtube. I found it a GREAT help and they definitely made me feel more confident when taking the exam. I loved all of your math related jokes and the “banter” between you and Mark. You are a tremendous teacher and I appreciate the help that you guys provide for free! I watched hours of the videos. You guys explained everything so clearly and detailed, but in a concise fashion. Truth be told, I am going to really miss you and Mark’s videos and jokes. I could never thank you enough.

Thank you! We were certainly grateful to have our very narrow skills put to good use during the pandemic!

Hi Mrs. Cornelius!

Thank you so much for the amazing videos on YouTube! You and Mr. Kiraly made me so much more comfortable and prepared for today’s exam. The explanations and jokes made the Calc AB videos so enjoyable! Thanks so much for all your hard work; I’m really going to miss the 2pm streams!!

Thanks! We’ll miss the videos too!

Hi Mrs. Cornelius!

I am a junior from Fort Worth, TX. I loved your and Mr. Kiraly’s AP Calc videos. They were engaging, and I so appreciated y’all’s passion for the subject. My parents though it was the strangest thing ever when they’d ask why I was laughing, and I’d tell them it was because I was watching calculus videos. Thanks for your hard work!

Thanks for sharing, Zoe! That’s too funny!

Hi Ms. Cornelius!

I am preparing to take the make up AB Calc exam due to some technical errors I encountered during the first test and was wondering if you could help clarify when to use brackets or parentheses. When describing concavity, my own teacher instructed me to use brackets, yet when reviewing past College Board FRQ scoring guidelines, many times concavity is expressed in open rather than closed intervals. In addition for determining when a parent graph is increasing or decreasing based off the first derivative (assuming that the parent function is continuous on a set closed interval and differentiable on an open interval), would I describe the interval that the parent is increasing or decreasing with bracket or parentheses? Thanks for your help!

Different books handle it differently so AP usually is pretty lenient or asks only about open intervals. I would stick with parentheses. Good luck!

Hi Virge I miss you teaching me ap calc. Thanks for helping me pass xoxo

Did you watch out live video tonight on the college board You Tube channel?

Thanks for letting me know you passed!

Hello Ms. Virge, Hope you are doing well. I wanted to say thank you for the AP live videos. It helped me get a 5. I appreciate you and Mr. Kiraly’s videos. Please don’t stop helping students.

Love,

Jes

Great job on that FIVE! When did you take the exam? 2020 or 2021? We are about to start our plans for our 2022 sessions. I can’t believe it.

I took my exam in 2021.

Great!

Hey, Virge! Huge fan from Calc AB last year! All of my BC friends and I are begging for you and Mark to make a BC video!!! Even if it is not offiliated with College Board, we need the help and there is NO ONE better than you!

I don’t know, Tony and Bryan are pretty awesome!

Hey, Virge! I watched you and Mark Kiraly’s AP Review video on Advanced Placement’s YouTube, and I really enjoyed it!

I noticed that you and Mark have the same background, sink, and curtains, but it was a different time of day. Just out of curiosity, why are your backgrounds so similar?

He took a screenshot of my house one day while I wasn’t in my chair. This was back in 2020. He changes his backgrounds all the time but he always starts at my house. Thanks for watching the videos!
