Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Every day is a new learning experience, combining all the student's past knowledge in math. Mrs.Savage makes the class friendly while keeping the course structure rigorous. Calculus was the focus of math which made me fall in love with math.
Course highlights:
This course follows through the fundamentals of calculus and covers limits, differentiation, and integrals. The most interesting part of these operators are their applications such as generating volume from equations and differential equations which govern natural processes.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
How well did you do in Algebra 2? Was it because you did not study or did not understand the material. Calculus is a combination of Algebra 1 & 2 and Geometry. If the student does not have a solid fundamental scaffold for math, they may struggle. Do you fear heavy homework? Without homework in Calculus, the topics will likely not be learned. A student who is not afraid of doing homework will excel in this course and will likely find the course fascinating. In the end, without understanding Math, you will not enjoy math.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this class for anyone who thinks the do not like math. Taking this class with Mrs. Walker has helped me decided that I want to major in Accounting in college.
Course highlights:
Being able to utilize computers and programs in this class allowed for a learning environment that I have not yet experienced. This experience has allowed me to grasp many very difficult math concepts.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Put in the work required and ask questions. if you still find yourself needing assistance there are multiple videos online to help guide you.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Mr. Early's Precalculus class is an unmatchable preparation for Calculus, a class that is in disposable to any student intending to follow a STEM career. Within the Cocoa Beach High School walls, I cannot think of a more enriching, more motivating, or more informative class. More than any other class I've taken so far, Precalculus at Cocoa Beach High School has prepared me to proceed in school, and in the real world. Thank you, Mr. Early, and thank you, Cocoa Beach High School!
Course highlights:
Through this course, I gained knowledge about trigonometry, mathematics pertaining to the circle shape and unit circle, real and imaginary values, and functions. Particularly toward the beginning of the year (circle math), the class is interesting on a theoretical level as well as a practical one. Mr. Early explains how each lesson pertains to the real world, and we take localized information using real data and problems to connect mathematics to daily life.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Take good notes. That is the best advice I, or anyone in this class, can give you. Listen to his explanations, and take notes on more than just the power points (although they are quite comprehensive). I advise color-coding the notes, as the information can get confusing. Break your notes down into sections, and make sure you understand each topic before moving on to the next one. Talk to Mr. Early before and after class, or during lunch if you need to. He enjoys helping his students succeed!
