Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
It was definitely a challenge, and the one unit of trig really threw me off. But it all was very applicable as I continued into higher math classes!
Course highlights:
I finally memorized the unit circle! Since the unit circle is such a vital part of higher math, it is nice to have that under my belt.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Take notes! And make note cards of the theorems and proofs, because it helps tremendously to know how to solve equations. Also, do the homework! Because if you blow off the homework, it will bite you in the ass during the test!
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Although this class was one of the most difficult classes I have ever taken, I would recommend it because it taught me how to persevere in hard times. This class teaches you to think in ways you normally never would have, while also teaching you not to procrastinate and ask for help when help is needed.
Course highlights:
I learned how to approach math in a way that I would not have even thought of prior to this class. I learned a lot about my own work ethic and in which areas I needed to improve and in which I needed to exercise in more areas of my life outside of the classroom.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
The advice I would give is to stay on top of the homework you are given. Also, if there is a topic on the homework that you don't understand, do not expect to figure it out eventually, ask for help as soon as possible. This way you can have an accurate grasp on the concept before you move on to the next one.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wants a challenge to learn new ways to use algebra concepts they already know and get a beginning to learning calculus.
Course highlights:
I enjoyed the fact that I could use formulas and concepts I've known for years since I've taken algebra I and use them in different ways I didn't know I originally could to solve new problems.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
What I did to succeed in this class always be sure to take really good notes of each lesson and use notecards to memorize all of the different formulas.
