    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Up until this course, math classes weren't too challenging for me. If I wasn't doing well, most of what I had to do was study some more. However, Calculus AB changed that; it required me to fully understand and learn the application of the topic we were on to do well.

    Course highlights:

    In the first semester, we learned all about derivatives: the basics of deriving, the power rule, HodHi and HidHo, applications of derivatives to real life situations, and more. Second semester, we learned about integrals: the basics of integrating, the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, finding area between curves, and more. However, this course really taught you how to fully learn the subject, rather than just memorize equations and use them on the test. To pass the course, you have to know how each concept works and the theory behind why you'd use it- just knowing the formulas won't get you through the course. This class really taught me how to learn things for the sake of actually knowing how to use it, rather than just cramming the information and then forgetting it after the test.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You definitely need to consult outside sources to fully grasp each concept from the course. There's so much content to cover, but since Moreau is a block schedule, there's no class periods to spare if you don't understand something. Sources like Khan Academy or YouTube tutors like PatrickJMT were really helpful for me throughout the course. You have to take initiative to teach yourself when you don't fully understand a concept. As long as you keep on top of your work and look for help when you need it, you will do great in this course.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course, because it offers students an exploration of the central science and its practical applications in the real world. Ranging from gas laws to electrochemistry, the coursework answers many questions even I had as a little kid! Why do molecules exist? How do the elements differ from each other? How can I speed up chemical reactions? How can I slow it down? The AP course helps foster a passion for the sciences, especially for Chemistry. It immerses students through engaging coursework through labs that include making nylon material and mixing acids and bases.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course include the labs that are built into the curriculum. The course also includes an opportunity for students to make their own labs and conduct experiments on something they are interested in. I was able to learn the chemistry behind making synthetic materials such as nylon that have revolutionized the fabric we use for recreational activities such as camping. I was also able to learn how to make soap and various chemical substances that have facilitated our standard of living.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise to always stay on top of the work. If possible, try to read coursework in advance to be familiar with lectures during class. I would also do preliminary research before labs to accurately build analysis on why certain results occur from an experiment. I would immediately contact the AP teacher after class for any subject concepts that were vague or misunderstood. This will allow students to understand all the subject material going forward through the curriculum that will include concepts introduced in previous chapters.
