    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I took Pre-Ap Algebra II my junior year of high school. The first six weeks of the class is quite confusing and challenging, but with the guidance of Mrs. McCourtney this subject can be conquered. There are some times she will drift off topic and talk about her personal life, but the stories are short and interesting. The subject matter used in algebra II can actually be applied in the future, which for all students is very important.

    Course highlights:

    This course not only expanded my mathematical knowledge, the course also helped me gain many important academic skills. In terms of the curriculum itself factoring becomes almost second nature, preparing you greatly for calculus. The skills I was able to obtain were various study habits and the virtue all people strive for, patience. Tests, quizzes, and daily skills checks require alternate means of studying since tests cover more course material and skills checks are far more specialized. You learn to pick out the most important information for big test to apply and for skills checks and quizzes, detail is the best thing to study. Each individual step for finding a solution is super important!! Lastly, patience, especially in the beginning of the year is super important. Many people dropped the class because they felt they wouldn't be able to keep up or couldn't understand the material. The first chapter or two may be confusing, but after a while a pattern will appear and connecting the dots will be extremely easy!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The biggest peice of advice I can offer is always do the homework and do not drop the course in the beginning of the year. The homework is a great study tool for helping grasp the material learned that day, also if you are having trouble the teacher can see where you need help. Also, sticking with the course is definitely worth the struggles. Diving deeper into a subject is always super important, and for calculus the difficult math in algebra will prepare you for the struggling parts of other math courses.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class was extremely difficult. The teacher expected you to have a lot of knowledge beforehand, most of which had not been taught in previous courses.

    Course highlights:

    You learn a lot about FOIL/Box Method, which is definitely hit or miss for most students

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are ever unsure about a problem or process, ask immediately. Everything taught over the year will be reviewed repeatedly

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Math has always been fun to me so taking calculus AB instead of BC was a big choice because I had to decide between speed or appreciation. If you are looking for a challenge BC is the way to go but AB allows you to really dive into the subject with more depth and allows you to take your units with more care and precision.

    Course highlights:

    I love the pace because it isn't slow primarily because it's still calculus yet still allows one to take time and understand the subject.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Homework is vital. The only way to truly understand a formula is to use it over and over until the formula becomes natural to remember.
