Math-heavy
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Learning calculus is so interesting and exciting! It truly is a perfect mathematical science, and there are so many practical applications, particularly if you are thinking about going into a STEM field.
Course highlights:
The highlights of this course are without a doubt the integral and volume sections. Learning about the area under a curve has so many applications, and learning about volumes of rotated functions is interesting and fun.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Learn how to study math! Do extra problems, work as hard as you can, and never be ashamed if you don't understand something or need to get some extra help. It will be worth it, but you have to put in the effort!
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend it if you enjoy a challenge. This course challenges you and teaches you skills that are very helpful if you are planning to go to college. It can also get you credit for that class for college cheaper than it is at a university due to it being an AP class.
Course highlights:
The highlights of this course is that it's at an upper level than other math classes available. It makes you think. You can see how math is related to the real world, and solve problems that you didn't think could be solved before.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
My advice for this class, is to study and to make sure you're caught up. This class goes at a faster rate than most classes, and so you don't want to get caught behind. Make sure you understand the content, and if you don't ask for help. Go to tutoring when needed, and make flash cards for the equations you learn about.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Having a math class that is different than an algebra or geometry one is definitely nice for a change. Most students found the concepts to be either more or less difficult than algebra so if you don't like algebra then this class is probably more up your alley.
Course highlights:
I gained a real life application of math. Students always ask teachers when they're ever going to need to use their math skills in real life. This class is a perfect example of the kinds of information you will use most often. Trends, patterns, probabilities are all relevant.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Do your homework!! Statistics is an introductory class so it's highly likely that everyone going in will have little to no knowledge on the subject. This makes doing your homework extremely important because if you don't do it, you will have no bank of information to use on the tests or final.
