    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you are interested in math I would go ahead and take regular Calculus rather than PreCal. However, if you need that extra help understanding more about where things originate from and why we do math in the first place this course is very helpful! At first It gets difficult because the units skip around a lot and most topics don't correlate with each other but after the first semester the rest of the class makes sense and gets easier. No matter if you're good at math or not it definitely teaches you a lot and you learn how to study better. I would strongly recommend it because you won't regret it!

    Course highlights:

    It was a dual credit class at my school with the University of Texas at Austin so I earned college and high school credit. It really showed me the difficulty of college courses and taught me great study techniques that I can take with me to college. Also I've never understood or like math but this class changed my perspective! It taught me how functions are derived and their purpose and it opened a new door to a subject that I never thought I would like.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study, study, study!!! When the teacher has office hours always go and ask for practice problems constantly. You should be sick of doing math that's how much you should be practicing.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    My discovery pre-calculus class is quite interesting actually, because it links mathematic concepts I learned from geometry to algebra II, and shows how they work, so we can use them creatively in solving problems.

    Course highlights:

    My highlight of this course would have to be when I discovered that the quadratic formula actually turns into the standard equation in conics. I also realized that completing the square was also the same as completing square. I learned that even though I was taught multiple methods and ways to solve certain problems, I can get creative and use Pythagorean theorem to find out how to cut a piece of wood!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In this course, be attentive to your teacher, study every night, ask questions, collaborate with groups, and once again, study every night! I am being literal when I say that because the next day you will move onto a new topic, and it is very recommended to get practice outside class. You can do that either through tutorials, or asking your teacher for a load of practice problems.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course isn't as hard as it is made out to be and its college credit. Its a great way to get ahead in college.

    Course highlights:

    I have just started the course in august but we've already gone through 4 units. We've learned about limits and derivatives, along with a review of some algebra at the beginning.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do a lot of practice problems!!!!!
