Will I be rescinded?

I took AP Calculus this year (this is my 5th math class). I got a 64%(2nd quarter), 58.9 (3rd quarter), and 49(4th quarter). I have high grades in all my other classes, and I take mostly all AP course. The quarter grades were solely based on a couple homework assignments and one or two tests. Due to the low math grades, my GPA is not quite a 3.0. It is around 78-79%. Which is 2.8~2.9 (I believe).

Is there a high chance that I will be rescinded?

    Rather than asking here, get an official answer from the admissions office. Give them a call or send them an e-mail with a detailed explanation about your current situation. Honestly, try to make it sound like you weren't just slacking off and that something unexpected caused this to occur. Don't lie, but don't just state that you're going to go under a 3.0 without any explanation. Hopefully, they'll be understanding and let it slide or at least give you a heads up about what'll happen.

    While I agree with Paul13 100%, don't use what I quoted as your explanation. That is 100% exactly the way college courses are graded, so it'll make you look like a fool to try and blame your poor grade on that.
