pace. I know in precalculus or precalculus honors you could get away with doing your homework a couple days before the test, but that philosophy doesn’t work in calculus. If you procrastinate and fall behind with your homework, you’ll deeply regret it. For one thing, the units are longer and there’s more textbook problems to do. Also, there’s more to do than just some textbook problems. You’ll have to do free-response problem sets and problems out of a workbook that are graded for ACCURACY, NOT COMPLETION!!! So make sure you carve out time each day to get work done. Just to reiterate, each unit builds on each other in calculus and the year progressively gets harder. Make sure you focus and capitalize at the beginning of each unit by doing your homework and asking questions. This will alleviate headaches down the road, believe me. For instance, the beginning of the year is a review of the topics in precalculus, but don’t let that fool you. You’ll still need to pay attention and remained focused if you want to do well on the first test and start the year off right. In addition to not procrastinating and staying on top of your work, make sure you stay after and ask plenty of questions. Lots of material gets covered very quickly and there will be times when you’re confused and wondering why you took this class. Just breathe, calm down, and continue to work hard. If you work hard in class, do your assignments, and ask questions you’ll be fine. Remember, the calculus teachers here at soco are

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
