Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
After taking Precalculus, this course is a great next step into the fundamentals and basics of calculus. It doesn't ask you to do more than your capacity and the teaching methods used are ones that cater to all learning types. It clearly establishes the learning content and the curriculum is set up to ensure that you learn the base of the information and builds up more information to fully understand each concept and link informational ideas together.
Course highlights:
I was exceptionally lucky to have Mrs. McCarron as my teacher. I loved the learning environment that she created for her students. My favorite part of the course was the very last project assignment of creating our very own AP Calculus Textbook of all the items we learned over the course of the year. This helped me tremendously with my AP final, as well as my in-class final. Also, I believe it will do a great deal to help me in college with my mathematics courses.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Be sure to do your homework. It may seem repetitive to hear that over and over from teachers and graduated students alike; however, if you keep hearing the same words over and over, don't you think there's at least some truth in it? Homework ensures that you're able to do the work on your own and challenges you to complete the problems without having someone walk you through it. It's just like any type of memorization - you won't know if you ave actually memorized it until you put the paper down and try it on your own.
