Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I enjoyed learning about the different topics about this course. This course gave me guidance as to what I want to study in college and what I would like to pursue as a career. It gave me options as to how I could apply the knowledge from this course into different career paths.
Course highlights:
This course definitely expanded what I already knew from previous math courses. This course gave me a greater appreciation of how math, specifically calculus, is used in everyday life. Every lesson builds upon the previous and every new method of solving an equation comes to play.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
My biggest piece of advice I would give is to put as much work as you can into this course. I struggled with the first quarter of this class mostly because I had not put in the maximum amount of effort I could put into this course. Once I did, I was able to understand everything from a new perspective and was able to connect the dots between chapters and lessons.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This is a difficult class. Unlike most other math classes you can't just remember the formulas. You need actual understanding of the class and the material. A good memory isn't always enough.
Course highlights:
If you took Brief Calc, you have a little taste of what AP Calculus BC is like. Derivatives and Integrals are used throughout the year so keep the rules you have. Also make sure you're reading the problems on the test correctly.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Definitely try to understand the topics. If you understand the topic, you can work through the problems sometimes and figure out how the formulas work and relate to the problem. Also sometimes go to the extra practice before and after school!! This is so helpful because you can work through the homework problems and understand them better.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Great challenge if you think you're good at math!
Course highlights:
Challenging concepts and late nights studying for final exam.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Be prepared to go at a really fast pace with challenging subjects. Make sure to not fall behind and ask teachers questions constantly to really understand the material.
