This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I will continue to work hard in college when it comes to reaching both academic and athletic goals, so when I get to the end result I can make the best life for myself, and those in my community.
Course highlights:
I read a book for my little sister every night when she is falling asleep because it helps me to practice my English and it's good for my sister because she can read and write at the younger age. Second, I always help my mother, who doesn't have my father and who is always sick, since she doesn't speak any English
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
. After school I work to help my mom and my siblings because my family is important more than anything to me.
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
I actually partook in this course in high school as part of the Cornerstone Program. I would recommend to all high school students and college students to take this course because it not only helps prepare you for the style of thinking necessary for calculus, but also increases your abilities and understanding in geometry.
Course highlights:
My personal highlights of this course were diving deep into the trigonometric functions. These functions have helped me with all aspects of math I continue to do today.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
DO YOUR HOMEWORK!!! Memorize the trigonometric identities and geometric formulas and this course will be a breeze that helps build the building blocks for success in math to come.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Scott brings a lot of creativity to the course, and he's forgiving when it comes to grading. His classes tend to be somewhat easy to pass, but hard to ace. The only grades are tests which can be hard if you need structure, but helped me because I'm more of an independent learner. I liked this class because it allowed me to study on my own terms, and the professor was fun and likeable.
Course highlights:
The first week of the class was a bit unstructured, but afterwards he tends to follow the book pretty well. He gives suggested homework problems everyday but they aren't graded. The class covers limits, differentiation, applied optimization, related rates, L' Hopital's rule, and learning how to describe a graph.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Study everyday and do the suggested homework problems. Make sure you get 8 hours of sleep before each test.
