Not too easy. Not too difficult.

Of course, they were use of infinite and limit. Applications of limit and concept of infinity such as derivation and integration suggest new way to approach and solve problems.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
You need to love, if not tolerant, math.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This course helps prepare you for future math classes in college. Mr. Gualcherani is an excellent teacher and knows the material very well. He is more than willing to help you if you are struggling. He even pushes you to think more abstractly/conceptually. I felt very prepared for the AP exam through this class.
Course highlights:
Through this class, I learned how to study math more effectively. It pushed me to test my math abilities because of the conceptual questions. I felt very prepared for the AP exam because of all the study sessions that was held.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
You should definitely ask questions from peers and Mr. Gualcherani himself whenever you don't understand questions. There is no way to prepare for the first few exams you're given, but don't worry. The first few exams don't predict how well you're going to do in his class. Just do a lot of practice problems to prepare for his tests and make sure you actually understand what you're doing.
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.
