This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because it will give you an insight of what college math is going to be like. This course if for the people likes to deal with a lot of formulas and for those who are good at deciphering formulas from word problems.
Course highlights:
I learned about limits, derivatives, different theories and so much more. I am honestly still taking this course but it has been challenging.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
Spend as much time as you need on this course. Study everyday and go to coach class or go to tutoring session for help with any topics that are a little on the tough side.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This was a more decelerated class, which was certainly a welcome change given I was taking two math courses this year. The teacher was, I think, brilliant, and on top of being brilliant was also able to engage in relationships with his students. He learned all our names, remembered the things we shared with him and where we said we needed help. He broke the material down for us using our own language, so to speak,instead of referring to textbook definitions.
Course highlights:
This was the year I gained mastery over functions, specifically their graphs. The most important about this that I learned was not to take a graph to seriously; the scale doesn't have to be perfectly spaced, the lines might be crooked, but a graph is a graph. What was important to him is that we could understand it.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Don't slack off just because the teacher isn't going to be on you about doing your work all the time. He's funny and lighthearted, but he still deserves your attention and respect. Just pay attention, take notes, and put in the effort and you'll be fine
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Calculus is a math subject that will keep your brain working. Calculus will make you think about other ways you can solve problems not just in math but in situations in life.
Course highlights:
I learned how to apply formulas and solve problems using multiple methods not just one method. Also I learned how to follow steps precisely and take my time when solving a problem.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Always study and take your time. If you mess up then just restart. Do not be afraid to get help or to get help from someone else; there a lot of mathematicians out there that have websites and wrote books.
