This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This course is very difficult. The key to doing well is always practicing your material. And never be afraid to ask questions and seek help.
Course highlights:
Derivatives, anti derivatives, and related material was the best. The quizzes taken on them were one of the easiest. You have to know how to memorize the formulas and equations. Once you learn and remember how to do them everything else is simpler.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Always ask for help. And study outside the material given. Watching videos on line and extra problems in the book will definitely help you with test. The teacher usually has extra worksheets you can practice with and if the assignment is to do only the odds or evens do both. Practice makes perfect.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Loads of kids who take this class are unprepared for it. Calculus is HARD! If you struggle in algebra and trig then calc may not be for you. If you do take this course, make sure not to miss any classes and if you do, follow up with the instructor as soon as possible because it is easy to fall behind. As long as you pay attention, do all your work, and study, the class is not too bad. Just realize that you have to put forth much more effort than any other Honors math class you've taken before.
Course highlights:
The best part of this course is derivatives. Calculus is pretty much entirely based on derivatives but the cool thing about it is you can use what you learn in calc as a short cut for formulas in other classes like physics.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Just study, pay attention, take good notes, and show up to class.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would highly recommend this course because it prepares you very well for the shifts in college math classes that will be necessary when entering college.
Course highlights:
I learned a lot of calculus-based math... Anywhere from derivatives to rates of change... it will be covered in this class. It may seem confusing at first, but it can be broken down and learned with patience and determination.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
I would advise students to be prepared to be confused, but don't freak out. There is a lot of new content in this class, but you will be able to break things down and learn most, if not all, of the material. this is a great class to take in high school and you should not feel nervous to take it.
