This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Mrs. Moore is there to help you always, but even then, the class is extremely hard and the content is very confusing. Even if you are extremely smart, you will need to work hard to do well. If you are looking for an easy A, try Stats instead.
Course highlights:
Mrs. Moore wrote my letter of recommendation and has helped me grow so much as a student. I love her and this class has really prepared me for college and other hard classes in high school.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Go in before school to get help. Mrs. Moore is always there and willing to put in the time if you are too!
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
You have to enjoy math a lot to do this. Mrs. Moore's both a great and very hard teacher.
Course highlights:
From Derivates to integrals to 3-D integrals to summation integrals. There is a lot to learn, luckily most of it builds off of itself, so it isn't useless.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Don't just do the homework; it isn't enough if you want an A. Go to all the online resources given and when you don't understand something you must work through it and understand, or just ask for help.

Course Overview:
BC calculus is probably the largest leap on the math trail. Last year, I was in Honors Precalculus, a class that requires little to no homework or studying to become successful. However, BC is different. This class requires one to become disciplined, staying vigilant on homework and studying intensely in order to succeed in the class. College will be no different from BC. The legends of all-nighters and panic studying prove this. This is why you should take BC. With the BC experience, you will be able to walk into college with the full understanding of what challenges lie before you.
Course highlights:
BC is more than just receiving college credit on the AP exam. BC is about staring at math problems in ways that you would never even dreamed of using. I needed to use every bit of mathematical knowledge from the past for every problem in order to fully understand how this cumulative curriculum operates. Through cumulative exams and problems of the week, I was always kept on my toes.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
DO YOUR HOMEWORK EVERY DAY, EVEN IF IT MEANS LOSING SLEEP!
