Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
In this course I was able to learn how to do simple algebra but complicated math problems. The teacher that taught our class teached us new ways to be able to solve the math problems.
Course highlights:
I had many highlights for this course one highlight for this course would when the teacher taught us how to the diamond method and the bottoms up method for factoring it was very different and unique. Something I learned this year was how I could find the slope of a graph, I always had a problem with finding the slope but my teacher helped me understand it in way that my other teachers didn't teach it.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Some advice I would give students that are wanting to take this course is that the teacher makes learning the material very fun, so you will enjoy the year learning new material in different ways just like I did. Even though theirs a lot of homework you will be able to go over it the next day with the whole class.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend it because it opens up a new way to look at and learnabout math. Instead of just using algebraic strategies, this course incorporates shapes and proofs to use mathematical reasoning backed by theorems. In addtion, it introduces you to triginometry.
Course highlights:
Highlights included learning how to write and complete proofs. Although they were challening, they made me learn how to approach math from a different angle (no pun intended) than I was used to, which encouraged me to think about math in a whole new perspective.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
I would recommend having a ruler, a protractor, a compass, and a scientific calculator if possible. These things help to draw shapes and are useful when learning about both angles and circles. Also do not fall behind in homework! It only piles up for you later.
