This class was tough.
The class builds on what you learned in Calculus BC, but the format of the class makes it difficult. The teacher is at another school and you effectively get skyped into the classroom. This makes asking questions difficult because he doesn't always see who has a question. Additionally, the system does not always function properly. Lastly, some schools are louder than others and the microphones pick up background noise, which makes the classroom loud sometimes.
After taking this class, it taught me how to adapt to unfavorable conditions. This class also prepared me for college in that way. Additionally, it taught me how to combine being an individual learner and participating with a community of learners. This class taught me how to hone in on higher level thinking skills and problem solving.

Advice for students:
For a prospective student, I would suggest always writing down the examples that Mr. Armenta does on the board. Additionally, I would suggest doing the homework the day that it is assigned instead of waiting until you have multiple assignments stacked up. Lastly, I would suggest developing a study group of highly-motivated students in the class that wish to understand the material at a deeper level.
