This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this class for students who did not struggle in Pre-Calc and have a great understanding in math. If the student is not the best at math it is best for them to grasp the concepts from algebra and Pre-Calc first.
Course highlights:
I learned that I did not have the best understanding of math as I thought I did. But even with that realization I also learned more about derivatives and intergrals.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
I would advise students to really make sure they understand algebra before moving on to Calculus. It is not as easy and there are often more than one way to get the same answer so students usually have to think about more possibilities.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because it provides students with valuable math knowledge that could help them in their future endeavors.
Course highlights:
Many topics are gone over in AP Calculus. Some of the main topics include: derivatives, interpreting graphs, and integrals.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
In order to succeed in AP Calculus, you must be willing to learn and be open to new concepts. It is a very difficult class to master but spending time studying and doing practice problems can help you succeed. Remember this is considered a college class so be prepared to treat it as if it were a college class.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this class only if the person is aspiring to go into the math/science/technology field for their career.
Course highlights:
Well I'm still taking the class, but I learned about new math processes and how to use problem-solving skills efficiently. I also learned how to manage my time and study.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
In order to succeed, you must be able to ask for help when you don't understand something. You also must be able to manage your time efficiently, as well as find a group of students that can help you study.
