This class was tough.
Course Overview:
He teaches the subject in a great way, and is always there to help when you don't understand the class. This class will apply math to some things you really do see in life, and it allows you to really push yourself.
Course highlights:
I really learned a lot of math and techniques toward how to do it. I also learned my limits on when I can keep pushing and when I need to stop for the night and ask for help, which is one thing I always struggled with. It's okay to ask for help, if you don't get it someone else probably doesn't get it either.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Take the teachers help when they offer it. Really pay attention in class don't think you know the basics that's enough, because it's not, and you'll realize that on the test.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this class for students interested in the applications of university level mathematics.
Course highlights:
The course covers pre Calculus, Statistics, and Trig in depth. The course offers an application and introduction into the necessities of higher level mathematics.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
To prepare for this class, you should take at least Algebra II and Honors Geometry or higher level math courses. Additionally, you should be prepared to study math notes daily.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend it because this course taps into your innermost sense of logic and reasoning. The hard logic is very hard, I won't lie, but the knowledge that you can reach such complex conclusions by yourself is incredible. No homework, by the way. Just be sure, ABSOLUTELY SURE, that you know what you're doing. Besides, I learned what those funny weird lines you see on professor's chalkboards in movies mean.
Course highlights:
I learned how to use complicated tools such as derivatives, integrals, and graphing calculators for use in finding rates of change, minimums and maximums, changes in acceleration, and logarithmic curves.
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
Calculus is much easier than it looks. Behind all those complicated looking integrals, derivatives, logarithms, and graphs, there is just algebra. Those complicated things are just tools that you learn to use and understand the purpose of. Really the course is only about thirty percent hard logic and tools, and the rest is algebra.
