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.
