This class was tough.
Course Overview:
If you are into math and want to study engineering or something heavily calculus-based in the future, this class is for you. If you're just looking to add another AP to your college repertoire, this class will probably end up too difficult.
Course highlights:
Korsunsky will drill all the intense calculus knowledge into you. It will be difficult, but you will no doubt end up learning calculus. The best highlight: Going into the AP exam super confident, because you know you're over-prepared.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Study her powerpoints and homework! Most, if not of Korsunsky's tests are like her powerpoints, which she posts online for students. She gives a lot of homework and her class can be challenging, but the good thing is, she never throws any curveballs. As long as you can do the problems she went over in class with her powerpoints and the ones she assigns for homework, you should be fine for the tests.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Whether or not you want to take this class really depends on your skill level. There's no easy BC calc teacher at Lynbrook. If you just want to take calculus and get over with it take AB. If you really want to go deep into calculus and are considering something like engineering as a career, take BC. But be prepared for all the hard work that goes into it.
Course highlights:
You definitely learn a lot. And Korsunsky gives you so much work, you are bound to remember all of calculus for like the rest of your life. Derivatives and integrals will become your life. A good highlight would be breezing through the AP exam. The class is very challenging, but that also means that you are very well prepared for the AP exam.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
When you really get down to it, AP Calc BC is a lot of work. You will get 3+ hours of homework. You will have to push back your bedtime. You will be exhausted and sick of calculus after a while. But you will also be a calculus pro and pretty much guaranteed to pass your AP exam. 100% of Korsunsky's students pass and my year 97% got a 5 (full score).
