    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Calculus is a very difficult class. Jamison is a phenomenal teacher, and if you have her, you won't regret it. I would recommend it, but there IS a considerable amount of work. You have to be up for it. If you're not up for the work, don't take Calculus.

    Course highlights:

    I had a lot of fun in the course, and I learned a lot of interesting math applications and formulas. Calculus is a very visual math, so I enjoyed learning how to graph derivatives and integrals. If you enjoy graphing, this class is for you. However, calculus doesn't build on precalculus hardly at all (save for the definition of a 'function' and the notation 'f(x)', and a little trig stuff), so everything you learn in calculus is completely new. You learn a LOT in calculus, about three central big ideas.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to study. Twice a week is good, nightly is better. The AP exam is no joke. If you're aiming for a 5, you have to REALLY want it. You have to really work for it. If I could do it all over again, I would start studying on day 1 for the AP exam so I could've earned a 5. That's what I'd recommend you do, too, especially if math isn't your thing. The number-one thing that'll help you prepare for the exam is practice questions and practice full-length tests.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I really hate calculus. I like math because there's only one answer and calculus throw that out the window.

    Course highlights:

    Jamison is awesome. She's a great teacher, I just didn't like the subject.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't miss the first week of second semester like I did. There's no coming back from that.

    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.
