    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is a great step into the higher level math that students will have to take in college if they major in any math or science major. However, it is not for people who struggle with mathematics as it requires the ability to understand very complex math. Since I enjoy math, I enjoyed this course and recommend it to any student who thinks their major will involve math or if they just simply enjoy math.

    Course highlights:

    In this class, students start off the first semester learning how to do basic derivatives. Towards the end of the second semester, students will be able to apply basic derivatives to real life scenarios. The second semester is the same, but with integrals rather than derivatives.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Any student who wants to take this course needs to have a great understanding trigonometry and algebra, and needs to be able to apply these to new mathematics concepts that they never could have imagined prior to taking this class.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Vulgamore is not the best teacher. You have to teach yourself the material if you want to succeed in the class.

    Course highlights:

    Everything I learned, I taught to myself.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to teach yourself everything.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is extremely challenging and requires you to teach yourself parts of the curriculum, which was probably the most difficult part to me. The teacher, Mrs. Vulgamore, is a lovely and kind woman but she jumps so quickly from subject to subject that it's hard to stay focused. I wouldn't recommend this class unless you have lots of spare time on your hands.

    Course highlights:

    My personal favorite part of the course was the camaraderie between the classmates because almost all of us struggled to understand the application of the math to real life situations. We had to figure out how to learn the material ourselves, which took quite a bit of time, but in the end it was worth it. In this class, we reviewed a lot of the Precalculus course and around second semester the focus of the class switched to preparing for the AP Exam. Throughout this school year, I learned how to ask good questions and how to work out complicated multi-step problems.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class, I would advise asking as many questions as you can. Meet with the teacher after school, raise your hand during class, etc. If you don't understand something, make sure you speak up. I had to learn that the hard way! Also, work on memorizing methods of solving problems, and make sure you have the unit circle memorized. If you don't have time to do 2-3 hours of work on homework each night, I would suggest not doing the class.
