This class was tough.
Course Overview:
It will prepare you for Calculus and Mr. Fortunato is an excellent teacher.
Course highlights:
I learned how to expand on all of the math that I have learned through the years
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
You need a strong math background and be willing to work hard.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I had so much fun learning this stuff
Course highlights:
Watching things from past courses be connected to this terms course.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Study. Make index cards for all new formulas and vocabulary. It helps
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because it introduces students into calculus which is very different from trigonometry and is uses a higher level of thinking. In this class you will be expected to show prior knowledge and will go beyond the curriculum of the class giving you a head start for Calculus 1.
Course highlights:
One highlight of this course was that it went beyond the curriculum of a normal Pre-calculus class. towards the end of the year we started to learn about derivatives, how they can be found with trigonometry terms in them and how to derive the second derivative of a function.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Some advice I would give to students considering this course is understand and review what you did in your prior math class. Knowing and reviewing the basic algebra skills before this class is very helpful with learning the curriculum.
