    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Great introductory class for calculus! It introduces the basic units and skills for calc, while recapping algebra II. My teacher, Mr. Shay, did an excellent job teaching us the curriculum, by offering one on one help, going over problems on the board, and having us think before just giving the answer and showing us how to. He walks through the questions we struggled on, and doesn't move on until everyone understands. He is by far one of the best teachers I've had.

    Course highlights:

    I learned trig, imaginary numbers, logs, graphing, how to form an equation from a graph, and factoring. We focused on using our calculators and graphing for a large portion of the year. Trig also took up a lot of time, for there are many rules and formulas. I learned a lot about logs, which was difficult for me in the beginning.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try not to miss classes, it is very easy to fall behind if you aren't paying attention. If you're struggling ask the teacher for help, and ask questions during class. Overall, the concepts aren't hard to understand, but some of the work is long and challenging. It's easy to make small errors, like missing a negative sign or factoring incorrectly, so always go back and check your work.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Shay is an amazing teacher, who helped me understand math. Calc isn't as hard as it seems, and with him as my teacher I was able to flourish mathematically.

    Course highlights:

    I learned trigonometry, functions, graphing, forming equations, and algebra which enhanced my understanding for calculus the next year. I learned how to read and understand equations and graphs. My teacher was the highlight of the class, he demonstrated very well on the board.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You must pay attention to succeed in this course. take diligent notes, and ask as many questions as you can! it's important to recognize what you know more than what you don't. Look at each problem with a new positive perspective.
