This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because it is challenging but really shows you all the different components of math and how everything we've ever learned comes full circle. I think that math is a very important skill and we should all try to expand our knowledge whether we will use it in the future or not.
Course highlights:
I learned lots about remembering details and how they can help you see the big picture when it's comes to a difficult math problem.
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
Do it! Although it's a tough course it really can show you who you are as a student. Precal really pushes you to challenge yourself and see what you can do as a math student.

Course Overview:
Pre-Calculus is the foundation course of the main subject, Calculus. If the base or foundation is not strong then the whole structure would fall. This course would allow you to get an insight to Calculus.
Course highlights:
One of the highlights of the course is trigs. The students will apply the trigs to solve real life problems. It is one of the hardest unit, and makes up majority of the course.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Always do your homework, and do practice problems online. If you do not understand a concept, then make sure you ask your teacher and do not delay.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
If you love math, this is definitely the course you should take. Pre-Calculus is a very difficult subject that even the smartest people I know had struggles with. I struggled in the beginning as well, and almost failed the class. Since the course was interesting enough for me to want to keep trying, I didn't give up. I came in for tutoring, asked questions even when I thought they were dumb, studied more than ever, and even did practice tests. This class taught me determination and complex math required for my degree of interest. Because this class was interesting but difficult, I managed to jump from an average of 68 to 87.
Course highlights:
There aren't any projects at all if you take Pre-AP. I learned a variety of college level math criteria as well as some simple math tricks to help solve difficult problems faster.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Stay on top of all of your work. Do not be afraid to ask for help or go to tutorials. And study, study, study!
