Bullis’ AP Calculus program has received a great deal of publicity this year due to teacher Stacey Roshan’s use of the “backwards classroom” approach.

The approach has proven to be successful for all, and AP test scores have risen since Ms. Roshan implemented the new technique. Software company TechSmith produced a video to tell more of the story. View the video.
