# AP Calc AB Free Response Questions

Below you will find Sample AP Calc Free Response Questions from previous years.

At a minimum, you should open and read through them ALL.

The more you read and understand how the AP College Board likes to ask questions,

the better prepared you will be when you are reading their language on the actual AP Calc exam.

## Free Response

The most widely available, officially released portion of any AP Calc exam is the Free Response question. I have listed here the free response section from the past 5 years of AP Calclulus AB exams. The only year missing comes in 2020. The AP Calc AB 2020 entire exam was never released to the general public, and so I have skipped over that year.

I will be releasing my video solutions to all these sample free response questions over the course of the semester. Keep checking back in to see what the next release will be.

The Free Response section of the AP Calculus AB exam consists of two sections. A section that requires the use of a graphing calculator, and a section that *does not *allow a graphing calculator.

– Part A: 2 questions; 30 minutes; graphing calculator *required*.

– Part B: 4 questions; 60 minutes; calculator *not* permitted.

They did not officially release the 2020 AP Calculus AB Free Response or Multiple Choice sections.
