This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Mr. Eddy is an excellent teacher that can give you a strong foundation in Algebra. He teaches all kinds of interesting things that normal teachers don't, like how to find decimal approximations for square roots by hand.
Course highlights:
I gained a great knowledge of polynomial equations. My favorite part of the whole course was the rational root theorem because it allowed you to solve extremely advanced equations without just using a dull formula.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure you do your home work every night even when you're sure he won't check for it. Practice makes perfect. Also, get involved in the class by answering questions.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
The teacher wasn't very helpful. I had to get help throughout the entire year from a different math teacher because my teacher did not stay after very often or said he would stay after but never show up. I only received high grades in this course because I stayed after school for help several days a week.
Course highlights:
I learned to apply math to real life situations involving interest. I also learned how to use my graphing calculator more throughout the year which is very helpful.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
I would tell students to make sure they ask for help right from the beginning and to find a teacher that will be willing to help them throughout the year when they need it.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Don't expect to be great at this just because Algebra 1 was easy to understand, but take the honors course if you want speed.
Course highlights:
The difficult part of this class is getting some of the more abstract concepts. You learn way more than others taking this same course with Mr. Eddy though, which is a double edged sword. He goes above and beyond what you need to know, which might be great for ome and not so much for others.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Work hard and don't just rely on the textbook like you're expected to. Go online for easier to understand explanations.
