    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Kirsch prepares you massively for the AP exam, ensuring that wherever you go you get college credit!

    Course highlights:

    I gained an intricate knowledge of Calculus that prepared me well for Calculus II and onward.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just watch Mrs. Kirsch's videos and you'll be just fine!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I couldn't recommend this course more! To begin, the course very adequately prepares you for not only the AP test, but college Calculus as well. Furthermore, Mrs. Kirsch couldn't be a better teacher. No offense to everyone else, but she may be the best teacher in the school. She teaches directly for the AP test. Not only do you walk into the test prepared and ready, but you walk out feeling great. Her mastery of the test and good schedule gives you (literally) more time to review the material you've learned than it takes to learn it. I didn't hear of a single person of the nearly 80 kids to take the test last year who got a 3 or lower. Great job Mrs. Kirsch! Thanks for all you do!

    Course highlights:

    Mrs. Kirsch is definitely one of the most fun teachers at DC! She prepares you for the test well, and the rest is a good time! As long as you're in a half-way sociable class (chances are you will be since the Honors/AP group knows each other pretty well by senior year), you should have a blast while taking it. Also, its pretty low stress. A lot of people really stress out about the tests, but that's not necessary. Mrs. Kirsch is really fair, and even with no work put into the class you should do well!

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it! Go into it, watch the videos, and get a five! Just put the minimum amount of work that Mrs. Kirsch asks you to (and maybe even a little less if you can get away with it) and you will be more than fine in the class and on the AP Test!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Most majors are required to take at the very least calculus 1 in college, usually higher, so I would highly recommend this course if you are on the path to take it. If you are planning to major in something like engineering or math that requires a lot of math, then this course gives you the jump start that you need, and if you are planning to go into a major where you don't really need math, then this can make it so that you don't have to take any math courses at the university level. Even if you don't pass the AP exam (although most students do), you will be way better off when you do take calculus in a university setting.

    Course highlights:

    Mrs. Kirsch is one of the best math teachers I've ever had. Mostly, you learn about derivatives and antiderivatives and some applications of both. This course is very helpful if you are also taking physics.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to do your homework and watch your videos. Take advantage of opportunities to retest but don't rely on them. As with all math courses, the best way to study is to do some practice problems from the book. Don't be afraid to visit your teacher if you are struggling to understand. Often they can explain something to you in under twenty minutes that would have taken you 2 or more hours to decipher. Know unit circle! Pay attention in precalc!
