    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I completely recommend this course because Dr. Jackman is the most outstanding and motivating teachers I have had in my years. This course pushes you more than you would believe and is extremely tough. I took AP Calculus AB, coming from Algebra 2 previously, and the quick speed is an adjustment, but the class all feels just as you do, and over time you understand, even as it may seem overwhelming. By the end of this course, you are fully prepared for the AP test, and watching your success is one of the most rewarding feelings that exists.

    Course highlights:

    Some highlights of this course are the review games, the pain charts, and the Champions board. As quizzes are being returned, music is blasting and the names of those students who scored above a certain grade are revealed on the board letter by letter. Waiting to see who's name is being typed on the screen is one of the most nerve-wracking moments, but this is a highlight every week in the class and a goal. In this class, I learned many different skills and methods in Calculus, along with the basic lesson that all math problems are not as hard as they seem, and even when you say you do not know, you really do. After making my name up on the Champion's board for a quiz that was 10/10 on the pain chart, this lesson really sunk in.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to students taking this course is to do your homework! Homework is optional, yet this may make or break your grade, and is extremely worth it. The extra practice truly helps out, and when I took quizzes where I did homework problems the night before, I usually did better.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I really like math and always did well in it, but this class challenged me and opened my eyes to other forms of math I didn't even know about. My teacher was very helpful and encouraging, too.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights from this course that I remember were finding volumes with disks, washers, and slices because to me, that was the hardest material we covered and it was challenging, and learning about integrals and derivatives for the first time. Derivatives and integrals were so new to me and so unlike any other math I was used to. It was a mindblowing experience to transition from simple algebra to the world of calculus. There were other topics that I really enjoyed and really loved learning, for example, implicit differentiation. Overall, my love for math really made this class enjoyable and having a teacher that was always ready to help and answer​ questions made everything even better.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just don't give up even when it gets hard. Keep studying and ask questions to anything you don't understand because the teacher will be there to help every step of the way. Also, study. Always take a look at the material even if you think you understand it because it will help in future topics. Calculus builds up and you need to understand past topics to continue to succeed in future topics.
