    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class taught me an amazing amount of information and it gave me a new way to think about the world. It was extremely intensive, and requires a working mindset, but it is completely worth it.

    Course highlights:

    We learned how to take derivatives of different equations, as well as how to integrate equations, and what these mean in real life applications, as well as how to maximize the products of two equations and how that can be used in real life.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely stay up on your notes and homework. Listen in class, and go in to his class to ask about the POWs because they have a very large effect on your grade, and they prepare you for the AP test.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you are serious about furthering your understanding of Calculus, I highly recommend that you take this course. Mr. Rodriguez, although strict, is an excellent teacher, and you will not only become a better math student, but a better student overall. He will help instill good study habits, as well as encourage you to seek help when you need it. He explains topics thoroughly and when asked to help someone, he will ask questions and help the student get started on the problem rather than simply give the student the answer. It is a very challenging course, but it is extremely well-worth the time and effort. It is almost guaranteed that you'll earn at least a 4, if not a 5, on the AP Calculus exam at the end of the year.

    Course highlights:

    I was initially terrified of this course due to how challenging and difficult it was in the beginning. However, some highlights that endeared me to this course would have to include when I earned an A- at the end of the first semester. I had started the year with an F, due to me failing the summer assignment. The fact that I was able to raise my grade from an F to an A gave me a huge confidence boost in my abilities. I also was chosen to participate in the Math Steeplechase on my school's varsity team, a county-wide math competition; having the opportunity to be one of four people to represent my entire school was very rewarding. It was even more rewarding when we won first place.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I highly recommend going in for help at least once a week after school, even if you have no difficulties with the material. Having the teacher right there will be very helpful if you do in fact come across any troubling problems, which will ultimately help you achieve a higher grade in the class than if you choose to wait until the last week of the semester to ask for help. I also recommend using YouTube videos if you're at home and you need assistance. Most of these tutoring channels are easy to follow and provide excellent explanations. Above all, DO NOT BE AFRAID TO ASK FOR HELP. The worst thing you can do is pretend that you can handle all of this on your own. Math is difficult; AP Calc is even more difficult. It's a fact, and not a single person is going to judge you for asking for help.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to a student pursuing a major that involves math. It is a rigorous and challenging course that tests your abilities not only in math but in life management and time skills. It requires you to be mentally fit and takes away from you physically as you lose sleep over it. However, this class is rewarding in the end, especially if you pass the AP test.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of AP Calculus were the AP test, volume of rotating solids, and the teacher. I learned so much in this class, honestly more than I have ever learned in one class before, and it is ultimately thanks to our amazing teacher who pushed us and helped us to excel in calculus. The AP test was a breeze after spending countless hours learning and reviewing all of the material. I learned so much and it has prepared me for college courses and hopefully my major in aerospace engineering.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say that the best pieces of advice I can give are to keep up with the work, be organized, and take good notes because they really do help you. I would also say that studying for tests and quizzes is definitely a must and asking for help is very beneficial to you.
