    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend it to students who are considering in majoring in engineering in college or have some possible courses of math in their major. Also, it can further enhance a student's skills in mathematics. It is fun once you get the lesson, and it gets especially interesting when lessons combine into an extensive process of solving a problem.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course are having group discussions when trying to solve a newly introduced lesson and playing Kahoot to compete with classmates. I learned that math exist everywhere and everything in this world and beyind consists a math problem from finding the hight of pole to the accerelation of rocket. Math is a universal langaue in which everyone can learn to speak and learn. Become the few who are more fluent in it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to the students who are considering taking this course is to make sure that all material from previous math courses including Pre-Calculus and Calculus A.B. should be memorized or at least well at hand. This is due because most lessons from Calculus B.C. are extensions of what has been learned from other classes. Students should enhance their skills in finding derivatives as well as antiderivatives since Calculus B.C. uses those throughout te book. Also, it would help if each student has their own graphing calculator and should know to properly function it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course because it is slightly challenging, yet it fills you pride when you finally solve that math problem. The class is really engaging and interesting, full of shortcuts to math problems that at first seem impossible, but then completely solvable when you use the strategies and proofs you learn. This class is like solving puzzles because the class requires thinking outside the box. All in all, this class is amazing because it will prepare for a world where math is a problem solver.

    Course highlights:

    From this course, I have learned to use the given information, find keywords, and to think the problem through its simplest form. I have now an easier time solving word problems, and I understand many things I did not understand before. For example, I learned where the pythagorean theorem comes from and why it works.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    One advice I would give to students who decide to take this course is that they should always be involved and try to participate. Always take detailed notes, ask questions, study the notes, practice solving math problems, always do the homework, never procrastinate, and try to always be in class. All of these things are essential in order to be successful in the course.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    While the course itself sounds challenging, Ms. Sloan is helpful as well as intelligent. She is aware of what she is teaching and is understanding when a student does not understand. The course may be vigorous however it is possible. It was overall a very fun course that I recommend.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course including the amazing teacher and the most fun classmates I've ever had. We struggled and succeeded along with one another. That was by far he most outstanding class ever.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advice students to be assiduous and optimistic. Like I said earlier, it is difficult but it isn't impossible. However, a students should not give them self a hard time because of a minor mistake. Mistakes are inevitable. Knowledge is powerful.
