Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend taking the course because Precalculus helped me get ready for Calculus. Much of the material is from algebra 1 and algebra 2, but taking the course is a good way to enhance your knowledge. When it comes to Calculus, the course seems hard, but if you took Precalculus then, you would do well.
Course highlights:
Precalculus helped me get better at my math skills much more than the first time I ended up in this course. I learned about logarithms, probability, and vectors.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
I would recommend someone who is not really confident to do math at a higher level. Taking precalculus would help you even more than just taking calculus
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Precalculus is very difficult for many to understand, so it is important that you put in ALL of your effort to understand it. It is challenging, time-consuming and stressful, but working through it means better knowledge of the subject. It is definitely worth the effort.
Course highlights:
I always had issues with dividing/multiplying polynomials. In a lot of situations, I was just flustered by all the variables and numbers being presented to me in just one problem! I learned to work through it though, and take my time to really understand what I am doing.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Be prepared to work. Many people dropped the class after the first few weeks of school because it was rigorous. Also depending on the type school you want to apply to after high school, you may not need to take this class. I would still recommend sticking with the class, since it's challenging nature can prepare you for college courses soon to come.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because it just refreshes your memory on things you might've forgotten. It also helps you with both calculus and statistics. Also Mrs. Hogg is a great teacher and you'll have a fun year with her but also learn a lot.
Course highlights:
The highlight of this course was learning so much that i had missed throughout the years.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
If you aren't a 100% sure you understand algebra 2 take this course before calculus.
