    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking AP Calculus because it gives you an inside look to what college math will be. Not only are learning at a college level, you are also doing work at a college level. Overall, it gives you on foot in the door for college.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was being able to apply everything we have learned into the last final test, the AP exam. Within the course, you learn about the different subjects that go into calculus. The main components that make up calculus are ones you study throughout the course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I would give to students considering this course is to really give it all your effort and be interested in the subject. It is going to be a long course if you do not feel passionate about what you are doing or don't seem interested on what's going on. Also, be prepared to do a lot of practice of everything you're learning. This is the only way you'll get better at understanding the material and getting used to apply everything.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course, because of how our teacher guides us through this course. Unlike other teachers, she would make us take notes beforehand and come back to school the next morning and add onto the notes we've taken ourselves. This way, it let's us portray the content through our perspectives, then later on we can come back to it and polish it. Also, Calculus is a great math course, because of it's uniqueness from other mathematics. This year we get to know new information and new techniques through Calculus. Basically, everything is brand new, and refreshing at the same time.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights of this course is how the content is challenging, but enjoyable to learn. I especially liked learning about limits and derivatives. When learning one thing from a different topic, you can automatically see how it connects to the next topic.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advice other students to put aside a lot of time for this course. It's a great math course, but it requires time to study it. Also, I would advice getting some extra help from tutors or from your teacher if you're stuck on a problem. It'll be worth the extra effort when that pop quiz suddenly comes up.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because Mrs. Jamison is a great teacher and makes sure that every one of her students understands the material! This class was very interactive and gave us great real life examples!

    Course highlights:

    From this course, I got a great understanding of Calculus and it helped me get my basic math class out of the way for college! This course focused on many real world problems.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are up to a challenge, I would recommend this class. One thing to prepare for is that there is a lot of time spent on homework because the problems are very time consuming. I would recommend to put aside a few hours a week just to study the material because there are many similar, yet different things to know about Calculus.
