This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course for students who wish to be able to fully develop their mathematic skills. If you went through your years of math courses and couldn't find a way to put it all together, this course can definitely show you how to do just that.
Course highlights:
From taking and completing this course, I gained an advantage over students in my college who have not taken this course. I have already learned the basic lessons of calculus and now I am able to simply review and master key concepts.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Ask your teacher for extra practice problems. Study them at home and solve them. Without this extra work, you will not make it through this class.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because I believe it is beneficial for college. It not only teaches you important topics, but also interesting subjects as well. This course challenges your mind and increases your knowledge. I especially like this course because it is fast pace.
Course highlights:
Some of my highlights of this course was when I gained a 98% on my exam. Although the topics are challenging, I practiced and studied hard to do well. It showed that hard work really pays off.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Some study tips that helped me was looking over your notes daily for at least 10 minutes. This action really refreshes your mind and helps improve your memory of the subject.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because Mrs. Ramirez is a very good teacher that is great at explaining calculus techniques. I believe that she has built a great foundation of calculus knowledge for me and I am sure to utilize it in college.
Course highlights:
The highlights of this course was being able to work with my peers and doing fun activities like math projects. I also really liked learning about proofs, optimization, and finding derivatives. Mrs. Ramirez made the class really enjoyable.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
My advice for students is that they need to put more time into studying formulas because they do not provide formulas on the AP exam. In addition, they need to practice the problems a lot and practice answering FRQ's because they are difficult. Understanding calculus can be hard and the only way to get a grip on the material is practicing it non stop. Students also need to have background knowledge on trig and geometry, especially algebra. This course is math heavy and requires students to have taken Pre-Calculus and Algebra 2 Trig.
