Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would highly recommend this course because Mrs. Lawlor is a fantastic teacher. As overbearing as Calculus is, Mrs. Lawlor manages to condense it into digestable bit-sized pieces for our minds. The organized fashion of her lessons makes Calculus almost seem like a breeze when otherwise it would be incredibly difficult and near impossible.
Course highlights:
I have gained a lot of insight into mathematics from this course. I have learned how to critically think and figure problems that are foreign to me. Ordinarily, I would always resort to using formulas given and merely plugging and solving, but after Calculus, I have gained the skill of critical thinking and I can find formulas of my own and go from there.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
In order to succeed with this course, students must be firmly focused. This is one class where lack of focus can be extremely penalizing. In order to understand the concepts presented, you must listen very carefully and never be afraid to ask a question. Any trouble you have with any concept must be dealt with immediately for it could cause a great deal of careless mistakes. Students must be willing to sacrifice some free time to properly review notes and completely finish homework.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This class will challenge you but allows you to one on one help from the teacher. Mrs. Lawlor does a great job and I really think taking it now is more beneficial to me than taking it in college.

Learning how to integrate and derive were the main highlights of the class.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
You need to study and do your homework to succeed.
