This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I wouldn't recommend it because I think this was tough, it really involved a lot of math. It basically took what you learn in Algebra one and two, but then out on a deeper level.
Course highlights:
There weren't any highlights in the course, however, I learned a great amount of information.
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
In order to pass this class, you would have to practice almost every day, memorize equations and formulas, also put effort into it.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because the concepts are not too difficult to understand and the teacher I had was amazing. I could really understand the information taught in class and the math behind the class was more algebra based for those students that excel in algebra.
Course highlights:
The highlights of this course are mainly derivatives and integrals. I learned how to derive and equation and integrate it (deriving backwards) as well as how to apply these methods in other equations and in real life situations such as rates.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
To succeed in this course I would recommend doing practice problems and following the rules of deriving and integrating equations, since that is what the class is mostly based on. There is a good amount of memorization as well as application to the methods in calculus.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This course takes everything you learned in algebra, geometry, and precalculus, and takes it to the next level. I'm a math person, so it was fun challenging myself to learn calculus. It's not for everyone, you have to be willing to do the work and study, and not just new material, old material as well.
Course highlights:
The highlights of this course were probably learning derivatives and integration. I learned so many different things. I learned many different approaches to problems, and I was able to look at a graph differently then before, and see new aspects of it.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
To succeed, you have to put in time outside of class to learn the material. Make sure you're not just understanding it, but proving that you understand it by doing practice problems. Practice really does make perfect.
