This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because it challenges you as a student to improve in your knowledge of mathematics as it requires persistence and memorization as well as the ability to analyze, calculate and solve various, difficult problems within a limited time frame.
Course highlights:
The highlights of this course was derivatives, integrals and theories because they are applicable to other courses such as AP Physics C. I learned how to derive and integrate equations, how to find the area under several different objects, and more.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
I advise other students to memorize formulas and theories over time instead of all at once because this will make the course a lot easier and less stressful. Also, try to avoid procrastination becuase the workload can get very heavy and can seem impossible to complete if not kept up with.

Course Overview:
I would reccomend AP Calculus BC if you enjoy math and are looking for a challenge. It is definitely the hardest class that I've taken throughout my high school career. With that being said, it is also one of the most rewarding classes that I've taken throughout my high school career.
Course highlights:
Calculus BC sets the foundation for what is to come in college. I have learned how to efficiently and effectively study for a math course which will definitely be helpful in college. In addition to that, I learned how to handle my stress and know when to go ask for help.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
There are a few pieces of advice that I would give. First, accept the fact that this class is going to be real tough. Second, do all of your homework. Third, don't give up.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend it because it is a very challenging yet rewarding class, but it requires a lot of extra work outside of class.
Course highlights:
The highlight of this class was learning how much of a connection there is between math and science. Calculus helps a lot with physics and vise versa.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Do all of your homework. Ask questions in class, in tutorials, with friends. It may also help you find practice problems online to do before tests.
