Great teacher highly recommended

I learned all about calculus Fun teacher
Hours per week:

Advice for students:
Great class no worries Homework is easy
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Since pre-calculus is starter course for calculus, it involves review from geometry as well as algebra two. Although the majority of it is review, you can expect to take what you've learned in the past a step further with Calculus ideals.
Course highlights:
Although I still have a lot to learn, I have retained a lot of information in regards to special right triangles, trigonometry, radiance and degrees, finding theta, et Cetera. A highlight in this course would definitely be learning why. For example in previous math classes you learned that 2+2 = 4. However when you go to pre-Calc you learn why 2+2 =4. there is no special math secret that goes into simple equations and you can't always plug everything into a Calculator. It's nice to know formulas, ideas, and a background as to where, why, and how things came about in math.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
There will be times where you can recall learning information from algebra 2 or from geometry, but there is always a twist and there is always something new as well as more to learn in regards to pre-calculus. Although you may think that the homework is easy, or the course is simple, or that you don't need to study: that's not true! Put in the work, because it pays off.
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
Math is my favorite subject and pre-calculus only reinforced that opinion. It combines all of the best aspects of algebra and geometry which result in some very unique and challenging problems. The course goes in depth with some of the concepts you are familiar with, but don't know the explanations to (for example why zero factorial [0!] is one not zero).
Course highlights:
The best part of this course was towards the end of the year when we learned the basics of some simple calculus concepts, like derivatives, integrals, and limits. It was very interesting learning something completely new to me. It wasn't like adding on to old material that I had done before. No, I was 100% unfamiliar with this stuff. It was also very useful, for if you're planning on taking a calculus class in high school, you'll need to do a summer homework assignment. This assignment is much easier if you know how to use limits, derivatives, and integrals. You will have a great advantage at the beginning of the next year.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Though the homework isn't checked in for a grade everday, I would stongly advise doing it. Doing it everyday keeps your mind actively studying the subject material. It makes sure you are always familiar with the current unit. You will never feel lost if you are consistently using what you know.
