    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Personally I love math, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't take this class if you do not like math. Even though this class maybe based mainly on test grades, Mrs.Canfield will 100% make sure you are well equipped to get the highest grade possible! Even if you do bad on a test, she will definitely make time for you to sit down with you and make sure you understand every single mistake that you make. By far one of the greatest courses by far.

    Course highlights:

    Even though I haven't finished this course, the rigour along with how she teaches the info really makes the information stick in your head. The math that we have learned is very useful, especially for people taking a Physics course in which you can just take the derivatives of the formulas, instead of memorizing them all.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    First of all, make sure you do ALL of your homework. In addition, look over your homework, that is wear a lot of material is tested from, and if you are no sure of how to do something, look back at your notes.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Canfield not only teaches calculus, but also discipline and respect that is often forgotten in this school system. While she maintains a stern demeanor and you find yourself quivering out of fear that she'll spot-call on you, you find that you've never paid more attention in any class, that you've never been so entranced in any subject matter. Because of the NMSI study sessions, we were able to compare our AP Calc class to others throughout the region. We found that even after a month-long strike, we were ahead in the material compared to our local counterparts. This class's point system also most closely mimicked that which you will see in college: you MUST do well on the tests to do well in the class. For a high school class, it provided minimal "fluff." Lastly, as a testament to Mrs. Canfield's greatness, 108/108 of her students took the AP exam. We were all confident in ourselves, we all had a reason to take the exam. This is rare, and if that doesn't say something, I don't know what would.

    Course highlights:

    There were massive amounts of homework. At times, I found myself asking "Is Mrs. Canfield insane? Doesn't she understand that we have lives outside of calculus?" However, I understood once I had the AP exam in front of me. I breezed through, and have never felt so accomplished. Most of the concepts were second nature to me. I learned the beauty of persistence and end reward. It's hard, as a senior in high school, to understand that giving up a couple extra minutes a night to do homework for an AP course will save so much time and money in college. Mrs. Canfield had the end goal in mind without lapse; I imagine that she repeats one number to herself every morning: five. Everything she does for us brings us closer to a five.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do every little bit of homework. It's so easy to copy the scoring guidelines from the CollegeBoard website, but in truth, you're setting yourself up for failure on the AP exam. Or, even worse, Mrs. Canfield will recognize that you copied the guidelines (this is very possible-- she knows them all like the back of her hand), and she will reprimand every class for your actions. It's not pretty.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Its a great math class that prepares you for college at a vigorous pace.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to keep up with a college level course and learn things such as derivatives.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you want to be challenged take this class. Always keep up with your school work and you will succeed.
