Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because it provided me with a lot of optimization problems and gave me a review of pre calculus. It also gave an introduction to basic probability and statistics which is really useful in everyday life and there were a lot of application problems. It is a good math class to find what type of math really interests you and what doesn't really interest you.
Course highlights:
I was able to know the why of math problems and understand the concept rather than just plug in an equation and get the answer. I realized how important good work ethic was and it was important to stay on top of things to not fall behind in class. It is good to participate whenever possible and ask a lot of questions if there is something that is confusing.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
In order to succeed, I suggest reading the textbook thoroughly and taking good notes in class. I would participate everyday and ask questions all the time.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because of how caring the teacher was and how easy it was to learn and understand what he was teaching.
Course highlights:
I learned the basics of calculus basically and the teacher taught through real life stories which made the class very enjoyable.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Always pay attention in class, do your homework, and create a bond with the teacher and the class will be much easier.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
The course was challenging but the teacher was able to take the time to explain the topics and help each student individually if they needed it. In college the course would be less hands on than it was in high school making it more difficult to learn and understand. Taking the course over a year in high school provided more time to learn the topic and gave the instructor more time to explain each lesson.
Course highlights:
This course introduced basic calculus to me and has helped me infinitely in my Calculus BC class this year. The teacher was great and the material was not difficult once it was explained. Learning a new and industry accepted form of physics was a plus too, since the derivatives are all connected in those relationships.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Talk to the instructor if you do not understand a topic. If you are having difficulty with a topic ask the teacher for extra practice problems and extra help outside of class. Most importantly do not fall behind, stay up to date on lessons and homework. Once you fall behind it becomes very difficult to catch back up. If you are ambitious read the chapter before going to class, then consult it during the assignments.
