    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Very good teacher. Friendly, fun environment. This course is difficult and expands on previous subjects such as algebra, geometry, and calculus, as a result, it is not recommended for students lacking this knowledge.

    Course highlights:

    With differential calculus you will learn to calculate the slope of a curve, the tangent line to a curve, instantaneous rate of change, the curvature of a curve, tangent planes to a surface, the direction of motion along a curve, volume of a region under a surface, work done by a variable force, area under a curve, the centroid of a region, the length of an arc, etc..

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to study a lot. Make flashcards. Study again. Ask questions. Participate in class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Washington is an excellent teacher and is completely willing to help out any student in need.

    Course highlights:

    Aside from the actual academia, this course taught me how to keep up with a vigorous level course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't slack on the homework or the studying.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course as the instructor is thorough in her preparations for the AP Exam. Mrs. Washington was also very engaging and dedicated to her students. If a student needed help, she would make a point of working with the student to get them one-on-one time. Additionally, the instructor set aside the final month of the course for AP review, which I felt was beneficial, as the students were not learning any more new material shortly before the exam. I am still waiting for my AP score, but I am confident I did well.

    Course highlights:

    This course was a great introduction to single variable Calc. What I felt was really great is that nearly all of the material had transferable skills that could be applied to Geometry or Physics as well. I would recommend having a solid knowledge of plane trigonometry before attempting this course.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take thorough notes and use them. I went through 4 quad ruled composition notebooks for the course. Don't bother too much with the textbook as the instructor does a far better job of explaining concepts. If a particular section is tricky, try reading the book lesson though, it might help. I would recommend a Ti 84 with the LED display, as it does so much more than the 83 model. Lastly make flashcards for the derivative rules.
