    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course because the instructor is very straightforward and clear. The work is just memorizing and understanding how concepts are used.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was that it's going to prepare me for when I go to college and have to take the actual course. Taking it in high school is beneficial because the instructor was able to have more time with the students and break down the tough parts throughout the year.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would let the student know that the math isn't the problem, it's understanding when to use a concept. Once you've understood that, there's no thinking to the rest of the course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend taking honors calculus! This course was easy, but yet challenging thanks to an amazing teacher. This course focused on all areas and concepts of the subject, and we were taught and able to learn how the equations were derived. This was extremely helpful because it is a subject that you take the formulas for granted, but my teacher was able to help us further understand and grasp what we were learning. Having took a calculus class I feel very prepared for college and know 100% that my notes and knowledge will help me.

    Course highlights:

    One of the major highlights of this course was actually getting to learn how certain equations came about. Taking calculus helped me understand that because as a student we would should all want to know why we use certain procedures, equations and/or formulas and this course brought that all to light. This course prepared me for every part of calculus, calculus 1, 2, 3 and so on. I learned that with calculus you have to take good notes because they will come in great use for when you have to take a more advanced class and when you have to study/review.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to take in depth notes and make side notes and so on. I found that this helped me a lot when it came to studying and reviewing for tests/quizzes. Also, you should attempt all your homework questions because some may seem difficult, but you would see that the questions that seem extremely hard turns out to have the least amount of work to it. I would also recommend reviewing you trig notes, if you have not taken pre-calculus, but if you did take pre-calculus you should look over it as a reminder. I also recommend working with others on questions because sometimes you may be stuck or confused and your teacher or friend may be able to help you. All in all, take good notes, participate, ask questions, study, work hard, and put in effort and you'll see it isn't such a difficult course!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course even if you aren't that great at math. The teacher, Mr. Dookeeram really cares about you understanding the content and will go over it again for you. He breaks complex math problems into simple, easy to understand steps.

    Course highlights:

    This class covers mostly Calculus I and a little of Calculus II. A major portion of the course revolves around finding derivatives and limits.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to participate in the class. You also need to study every night. This can involve just studying some problems from past topics or doing the assignments again.
