This class was tough.
Course Overview:
An intriguing math course that requires a good understanding of math beforehand that. For students who love a challenge.
Course highlights:
The highlight of this course was that by the end of the course, the knowledge from beginning to end has a large gap in comparison.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Do not take this class lightly. Make sure there is a good understanding of previous math courses. Take every lesson seriously.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This class serves as a great preparation for the AP test and will give you a great understanding of Calculus.
Course highlights:
I learned all of the basics of limits, differentiation, and integration. These ideas come into play in Calculus BC, so make sure to remember them.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Do not use CalcChat to look up answers. As tempting as it is, you will end up doing horribly when it comes time for the test and your grade will suffer for it.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Calculus at first seems like a difficult concept. However, with this course and this professor, I was able to master it easily. Calculus was far easier and far more fun than Pre-calc. It involves using math ideas to solve complex problems in new, creative, and innovative ways. For someone who is not only intelligent, but also creative, this course was amazing in contrast to classic math courses.
Course highlights:
Honestly, most people have no idea what calculus actually entails. Some of the things we learned were how to solve for limits, how to find the slope of a line by using only one point, how area and slope relate to each other, how to find the area under a curve, how to find the volume of a revolved graph, and much much more.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Pay attention in class. Do the homework, but if the assignments get too lengthy with all the rest of your work, do one or two problems of each type to make sure you understand the concepts. The most important thing is to remember that you've learned everything you need for the test, you just have to figure out how to use it. This is not a memorization course. You have to think.
