    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because if you pass the AP exam for this course, there's a chance you can complete the math requirement your freshman year (depending on what college you go to).

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were learning the difference between velocity and acceleration by pushing someone on a chair. I learned that velocity is determined by what direction the object is going and acceleration is how much force is behind the direction.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend going to Mr. Talbott's class on Thursdays if you don't understand the material you were taught.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    He is a great guy who is crazy enough to teach the hardest math concepts the average high schooler could handle. He loves pop culture references and is a geek for shows like Futurama and Simpsons as well as an avid movie-watcher. He is understanding with his student-athletes as he too is our varsity swim coach and knows the struggles of AP classes and varsity sports

    Course highlights:

    I learned not to sleep in class or you'll miss out on vital information. JK. I learned how to use differential equations to solve related rates and optimization problems. However, the highlights of the class was after AP Exams were over and we got to watch movies all period

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you have a ritual you do before a test, do it. Oh, and remember to actually do your homework on the day it was assigned and not wait till the last minute. Cramming for a test is hard enough when your also trying to complete homework. Plus the homework is supposed to complement the studying and should go hand in hand, granted you spread out your studying schedule throughout the week.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because Mr. Talbott is a good teacher and it's recommended to take four years of math for college.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were applying algebra topics into calculus and learning how signs (positive and negative) can affect velocity and acceleration with a wheelchair analogy. I never thought that the slope formula applied to finding derivative before I took calculus. Calculus gave me a new perspective on math.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to get help if you don't understand a topic and do your best on the tests because they are the highest percentage of your grade.
