Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This was my favorite course in my entire high school career. Math has always been my favorite subject, and I have always excelled at it. Until Calculus, most of the math courses I took focused on algebra, and this was something new and different. It was one of the first classes that I learned something new in every day and it taught me how to think more critically and apply what I learned to many different situations.
Some of the things this course focuses on are limits, derivatives, implicit differentiation, related rates, optimization, and integration. These concepts may seem foreign now, but learning one after another, they build upon each other and they create a whole new math world that you didn't even know existed. My favorite thing to learn was definitely integration.

Advice for students:
To succeed, take thorough notes and watch the teacher while she is doing examples on the board (that is the easiest way to learn). I also made flash cards for some formulas and key concepts. If you are struggling, take it upon yourself to open the textbook, read examples, and try practice problems on your own. The teacher is also very approachable and is willing to help at any time.
