Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend students partake in this course because it strengthens your knowledge of Algebra and it helps prepare you for harder mathematics courses such as Pre-Calculus.
Course highlights:
The main highlight of this course was gaining an understanding regarding the material. In this class I learned linear equations, inequalities, graphs, matrices, polynomials and radical expressions, quadratic equations, functions, exponential and logarithmic expressions, sequences and series, probability and trigonometry.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
When taking an Algebra II course you should pay attention to when the teacher is giving a lecture. Normally the teacher will provide you with information that was not incorporated into the notes or handouts. When taking this course you want to make sure to pay attention to small details and think everything through thoroughly before deciding upon an answer. It is extremely important to take notes, pay attention in class and complete all homework when it is given to you.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would most definitely recommend this class to anyone. I will admit, when I was younger I wasn't the best at math. I struggled and seeked the help of those around me. With the help of my peers and Mrs. Boyle I learned that anything you set your mind to can be achieved. As Mrs. Boyle often says, "The struggle is real", but it is worth the effort in the end. You learn many formulas, Avogadro's number, and many geometry aspects. You start to understand how math is incorporated into daily life and daily activities that we partake in. Math may be difficult but it is a necessity in our ever-changing world today.
Course highlights:
The highlights of taking Algebra II include the material, the atmosphere, the students, the teacher, and my new outlook on life. The material at first glance was very confusing and hard to understand. As my classmates and I dove into the material a bit more everything became much clearer. Mrs. Boyle provided us with songs and abbreviations to help us with the information. Two of her tips were KHDBDCM and SOH CAH TOA. The atmosphere of the classroom was very organized and well thought out. We had fun day Friday's to relieve stress. My classmates were very optimistic when it came to learning. We were determined to broaden our horizons and look into the meaning behind mathematics. Mrs. Boyle was a very caring and humble person. She made the class interesting and captivating. Lastly, this class gave me a new outlook on life. I am a very determined and responsible person. In school I withhold a 4.0 GPA. The class opened my eyes to the brightness of the future and the possible changes I can contribute to our world.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
In order to succeed you must be organized and very determined. If you are someone who gives up too easily this is not the course for you. Knowledge doesn't come free. You need to strive in order to achieve your goals. Keep a nice notebook, do all of your homework and pay strick attention to the teacher. This class is very fun once you become comfortable with the familiarity of your classmates and teacher. Keep an open mind and stay optimistic!
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would defiantly recommend this course, not only because without it you won't graduate but because Mrs. B make the class enjoyable. She is one of the teachers that actually cares about her students. She teaches the material clearly and is willing to sit down and help you if you are having a difficult time understanding the information. It was a great course.
Course highlights:
The highlights of the course for me was learning trigonometric function. Mrs. Boyle gives a great foundation of trig for students that take upper level math courses like pre-calculus and calculus. In Algebra 2 I learned everything from radical expressions to logarithmic functions.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Don't expect an easy A. Mrs. Boyle isn't a push over and there is homework almost every night. If you do it all and study the day before tests and quizzes by review sample problems, the A will come easy.
