A Few Big Assignments
Always Do the Reading
Background Knowledge Expected
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This course was a good introduction to Calculus. Mr. Clarke spent a lot of time methodically working exercises from the book in order to demonstrate the mathematical principles covered in the readings. He was also very open to questions and was willing to research any information he did not possess.
Course highlights:
I learned the limit process and how it relates to non-static rates of change, how to find the instantaneous rate of change on functions, how to find an original, non-linear function using the rate of change and a point in that function, and how to find the area under a curve.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
I had a two-year break between precalculus and calculus, so I had to put in a lot of work to refresh my knowledge as I took this course. It may have been because the course length was only ten weeks long, but Mr. Clarke did not spend a lot of time going over precalculus or material found in the readings, preferring to spend most of the class time going over the applications of the new information to solving problems. Reading your book is a must, but well worth doing, as it allows you to participate more readily in the problem-solving process. Mr. Clarke often warned students of the importance of memorization of the identities and laws in mathematics, as it becomes expected in later courses.
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
It's a very helpful class, its the basics for all advanced mathematics
Course highlights:
Its mostly about Derivatives and Integrals and some of the applications of these.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Do you Homework, practice makes perfect
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because she not only teaches a math class but uses learning techniques to help all her students understand all her lessons.
Course highlights:
I leaned pre-cal which has always been my favorite subject all my years in school.
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
Math isn't always students favorite subject be she makes learning math easy and fun.
