Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would definitely recommend this course if the passion for math and hard work is there. Ms. Berch is a teacher that her passion flows through her students and their work reflects that. Math is a fun concept and subject but it takes dedication and continuity for one to pursue it..
Course highlights:
I gained the use of why the unit circle and logarithmic functions will actually be used in computer science and for a lot of jobs. The other highlights include how to completely understand how to analysis world problems and solve them accurately. Another one would be how we also were able to go into depth of concepts that would later be focused in AP Calculus A/B, for example, limits.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
You need to do all the work and to have the drive to want to learn math and to continue improving. Also all it may seem daunting at times, learn to have fun while learning math and it's highly suggested to ask questions if you don't get it.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.

Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Turn in complete assignments on time. Put the effort into making time after school to study for test and get a chance to understand the material.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because it fully challenged all of my math knowledge that I have learned. Everyday I would learn a new manner to apply old information to what I am currently learning to help benefit me. It was a difficult course but it really makes you fully apply yourself to it and when you understand a concept it feels amazing. Many people are intimidated by having two hours of math but once you get into the classroom you realize that the workload is not that bad.
Course highlights:
The highlights of this course is that you are able to learn the meaning for complex problems that look very intimidating but are actually somewhat simple to do. Things that I was able to learn were integrals, derivatives, and so much more. It was very fulfilling to be able to understand those types of content since it is usually seen as a "foreign language" to most people.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
The advice I would give to the student who are attempting to take this course would be to get comfortable with those who are also taking the course because it is very beneficial to have a study group for this subject. If you are experiencing difficulties don't wait until the last month of school, come to tutoring in the mornings early in the semester and do saturday schools each chance you get. Make sure to constantly look back at old material if you want to assure that you will pass the AP test.
