Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would definitely recommend this course! It was challenging but definitely fun. I actually learned a lot in Ms. Ling's class and enjoyed talking to her. Students are put into groups and meet up for 3 hours a week.
Course highlights:
I was a group leader so I gained leadership skills. I formed a good bond with my group and together we would work on problems and try to solve them together. There are also study sessions to help prepare for the AP exam. Also, Calculus Airband was definitely something to remember.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Use your group! They are there to help you. Also, Ms. Ling provides many opportunities for additional help from her. I would advise to do your homework and attend study sessions because these are super helpful for the AP exam.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Although I struggled in this class, Ms. Ling teaches so that I understood the concept of calculus rather than just simply memorizing the formulas. The class also taught me how to study effectively and that's something that's benefited me till today.
Course highlights:
If it wasn't for calc airband, I never would've bonded with my classmates. Thanks to airband, I wasn't afraid to ask my classmates for help. These classmates helped make class fun and exciting. Competing with one another to build the tallest tower or make a car allowed us to be childish yet it still taught us something important at the end of the day. P
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Don't expect this class to be easy. It's a tough journey but if you stick through it, you won't regret it a single bit. This class taught me so much more than math, I'm so greatful to Ms. Ling for teaching me such valuable lessons in math and in life.
