Try every problem, and if not work it out step by step. Considering we don't get every problem correct, review the most challenging questions.

This class was tough.
Course Overview:
It is a challenging and vigorous course that will definitely get you thinking. There is a lot of work associated with this class, so students have to dedicate hours of their day to calculus. Despite the heavy workload, Mrs. Simons is a great teacher and offers after school help and is very understanding.
Course highlights:
Getting to work with every student at least once throughout the year was very interesting. I learned so much more than I could ever imagine. We started off with basics from trigonometry and applied them to much more complex topics.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
I recommend you don't procrastinate on any of the assignments if you value sleep. Also, if you do not understand something, always ask her about it because you have to understand the basics of what she teaches you because you will expand on it, so if you don't understand it, you won't understand anything from that point on.
