This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This course is presented as a series of online lessons with corresponding online assignments. Lessons are supplemented with an online textbook by Pearson. Assignments include quizzes, tests, presentations, mini-essays, and oral discussions.
Course highlights:
This course extensively covered the major, important concepts of Pre-Calculus with an Honors perspective. Highlights included several lessons on the concept of graphing equations beyond the simple linear equation. Other highlights included the live collaborative lessons and oral discussions with the instructor.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
If one is not comfortable with seeking outside help on websites like KhanAcademy.com or Youtube.com about the many concepts not clearly explained within the lessons of this course, I would advise him/her to seek this course in a live classroom setting. However, if one is comfortable with supplementing the FLVS lessons with outside videos and websites, I would advise him/her to pursue this class.
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
I recommend it for those who did well in algebra 1 and 2. It builds on previous math classes.
Course highlights:
It was good preparation for calculus and basically helps you review previous content from algebra 1 and 2. However it goes more in depth on previously learned materials so you basically learn more concepts that build on stuff you already learned.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
If you don't understand something, really do ask your teacher, mines was very supportive and helpful after lessons, or a classmate who does know. You really need to understand what is being taught because you will definitely need it later on in the course. Ask more than one person for help because math always has different approaches and methods to get an answer.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Well i'm not a huge fan or math, but i actually find this course to be bearable. Taking this course online allowed me to be able to work whenever i chose to and not have to be around the annoying loud obnoxious voices of people who don't try to learn the subject.
Course highlights:
The DBA's were like mini quizzes to see if you understand what you learned. They were quite easy. 2 to 3 questions at the most.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
TAKE NOTES! You have to try the practice problems. That's the only way you'll know that you understand what you are doing.
