    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is incredibly satisfying, not only do you learn how to do math, but the reason behind why certain things can be done, or why they can't be.

    Course highlights:

    Just the progression of the math, learning the complicated way, and then learning how to do things the easier way was so fun. I went from taking the limit of the difference quotient to using L'hopital's rule on any limit I could.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Learn how to study math, you can't do what you do in regular classes by just looking over the information and expecting to learn it. Do five or six of the same problem until you understand. Redo problems you didn't get right in the first place. Have study groups with your friends after you do a review to cement things into your brain.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because even though it may be challenging, it will give you a taste of what higher college math will be like. I would also recommend this class because you make studying everyday a habit. With this course you find yourself improving on your studying skills in all subjects, not just math. A major reason I would recommend this course is because of the amazing teacher that leads her students to success, even if the path to success comes with hardship. Mrs. Corbett's methods are both unique and effective. Overall, her two year class is worth it.

    Course highlights:

    From this course I gained study skills, work ethic, and time management. Almost everyday I had at least two hours of homework, so I quickly had to adapt and make my schedule work with all my other classes. Since I often had pop quizzes I had to always be prepared, which lead to a positive study habit. A huge highlight of this course had to be that everyday I was surrounded by hardworking peers, that only influenced me in positive ways.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this class you must be prepared to stay after school and come everyday to class because you will need all the help you could get. Other qualities you will have to attain is good work ethic and study skills, many students are kicked out of the course because they lack these qualities. Most importantly in order to go through with this class you have to have a strong mind set on success and not on failing. You also have to know how to not linger on your errors and just fix it to move on. Many of my peers at points in the year wanted to give up because they believed they were not good enough, and ended just leaving the class. To avoid this you must try and always have a positive attitude.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Now as a heads up this wasn't BC it was AB that I was in, the listings just did not have it. So if you are looking for BC scroll up, if not this is the place for AB. Now the class was about a moderate pace, and some content was heavy, but if you did the homework, the outlines, and payed attention during lecture, everything would come together. Now depending if you are like me, then everything will come together after the test, but you do reach an understanding and even some mastery of the material the course provides.

    Course highlights:

    I did enjoy derivatives, as much as they had there own twist and turns I liked them (leaves a weird taste in my mouth after saying that) and probably the easiest thing you will do in that class (after you learn the short cut). Another thing to keep in mind is that its not going to be the Calculus that gets you, it will be the Algebra after all the calculus is done that will knock you those few point.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Practice everything, derivatives, integrals, limits. Once you get a hang of one of them a new step is added so the fast you can grasp and master a concept the better off you will be when the next step does finally come
