What is it? Calculus Cache of Hidden Treasures is an extensive database of multiplechoice questions in both AB and BC Calculus, intended to make it easy for teachers to create worksheets, quizzes and exams. There is a student version and a solution version.
How is it Organized? Calculus Cache of Hidden Treasures is organized by topic. There are 36 AB topics and 15 BC topics:
How many problems are there? 588 for AB and 244 for BC. Within any topic, there will be between 10 and 24 problems, usually 16.
What about the difficulty of the problems? Within any topic, half of the problems will be easier  usually concentrating on one aspect of the course, and half of them will be harder  the type which students can expect in the AP exam involving multiple concepts.
What prior knowledge is assumed within a topic? The approach used is that students will not be responsible for any topic prior to it being taught. For instance, problems on straightline motion will not use integrals. So questions about distance traveled would not be asked until integrals are taught. There is a later section on straightline motion using integrals. This allows teachers to use any question within a topic without the fear that a concept has not yet been taught.
Are calculators required? For the most part, calculators are not necessary or allowed. However there is a smattering of "calculator active" problems, especially in areas where complicated definite integrals need to be taken.
What does it cost? Calculus Cache of Hidden Treasures is absolutely free for the student version.
When will it be available? Like our Diving In and Ripped From The Headlines, Calculus Cache of Hidden Treasures is a subscription. It will begin August 20, 2015, and every other week, 3 AB topics will be available and 2 BC topics will be available for download.
How do I get the problems? If you are enrolled in the MasterMathMentor community, you get them automatically. As with Diving In, when a new issue comes out, you will receive an email inviting you to download the AB problems, BC problems, or both.
If you are not a member, complete a free registration for our Mastermathmentor community. You can do so at: Registration page. Once you do that, you will automatically receive Calculus Cache through your email address (home or school or both) every 2.5 weeks.
What is the format of the problems? The student version will be in PDF format.
What about the solutions? The most exciting part of Calculus Cache of Hidden Treasures is that teachers who purchase solutions will receive it in Microsoft Word format. This will allow teachers to create exams or worksheets that use as many or as few problems as needed, edit the problems if they wish, print out answer keys, change the size of graphs and charts, and more. While answers in PDF format will also be available upon request, having Calculus Cache of Hidden Treasures in Word format gives teachers a huge amount of flexibility. It is something that teachers will find invaluable.
I have an older version of Word. Will the solution versions work? I work on a Mac and save the files in a format that can be opened by Word: 1997  2004. PC's work slightly differently. So check it out. Below is a link to a sample page from Calculus Cache of Hidden Treasures in Word format. The page has all the elements that the entire database will have: text, equations, graphs, and tables. Open the page and see whether you can do the following:
Click here for sample document.
a. print it. b. copy and paste a problem and/or solution to a blank page. c. resize graphics. d. edit equations. (This uses Equation Editor. Some knowledge of Equation Editor will be needed if you wish to change any of the problems. Teachers purchasing solutions will receive a short tutorial.)
What do the solutions version cost? The student version is free. The AB solution version (containing the problems and solutions) is $129.95 and the BC solution version is $69.95. The cost of purchasing both is $189.95.

When can I purchase it? It is available for sale right now.
Can my school purchase it via a purchase order? Absolutely. Contact me at sschwartz8128@gmail.com for instructions.
I don't want to do all that downloading. Can I get it on a flash drive? Calculus Cache of Hidden Treasures is a subscription and each set of three AB topics and one set of BC are issued every two weeks. When all issues have come out, we will have an option for purchasing the entire database of problems on a flash drive. Teachers who have purchased the solutions will be able to receive a flash drive with the entire database for $17.95 for AB and $25.95 for AB and BC plus $6 shipping.
Can I place the problems and/or solutions on the Internet? Absolutely not! However, if you create your own exams by electronic cutting and pasting and modifying problems, what you do with it is up to you. Realize though that if you place your own exams on the Internet, your next year's students may very well find it and cheat. Do yourself and the rest of us a favor. These problems are your "treasures." Keep these treasures to yourself!
I hope you are as excited about Calculus Cache of Hidden Treasures as I am. Having the ability to quickly create calculus exams on the fly with full solutions is something I would have loved to have had when I taught. I am really thrilled to be able to bring this extensive collection to calculus teachers.
