For both the AP teachers who create the more than 130,000 course syllabi and the middle school teachers who join them in making up the AP community, professional development is a vital aspect of their continuing efforts to provide their students with the very best AP experience. For this reason, 3,300 members of the community attended the 2013 AP Annual Conference in Las Vegas. This year’s conference in Philadelphia will detail the exciting advances in AP, which include the 2014-15 academic year changes in course planning and pacing for AP Physics 1 and 2: Algebra-Based, and redesign of AP U.S. History.
