We have selected relevant material from MIT's introductory courses to support students as they study and educators as they teach the AP® Calculus curriculum. These do not comprise a full course of study but offer material to supplement the understanding of the AP Calculus curriculum.

Series of Constants covers the topics of motivating examples; geometric series with applications; harmonic series; alternating series (error bound); series as Riemann sums and the integral test; ratio test (convergence/divergence); and the comparison test using a mixture of lecture notes, textbook chapters, and exam questions.
