    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I only recommend this course if you plan on entering into a STEM field - if not, you will be severely overwhelmed.

    Course highlights:

    I had no confidencein math entering it, but I came out able to score a 5 on the AP exam, a testament to the cutthroat nature of the course and Mr. Aleckson's teaching skill.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    STUDY!!!!!!!! Study all of the time, everywhere. Stay after school. Ask questions. Never leave the class feeling like you don't understand the material. And be prepared to be perfect on the tests - small mistakes cost you dearly.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    ONLY TAKE THIS COURSE IF YOU ARE DEFINITELY PURSUING STEM. It is very difficult, and Mr. Aleckson gives no margin for error in the tests - there are no retakes, no flexibility, nothing. However, you learn a lot - I was able to get a 5 on the exam because I was forced to study so much just to pass his class.

    Course highlights:

    The teaching is very thorough - you get a deep understanding of not just how to do derivatives, integrals, and series, but to apply them to physics, statistics, and other disciplines. The class is very intense, but great preparation for the AP exam.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    STUDY ALL OF THE TIME. Every day. Stay after as much as possible. Thoroughly do the homework, and seek out other practice problems. Minimize little mistakes on tests by pracitcing like crazy.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Aleckson's BC class is a difficult but amazing class. He teaches the content well and stays after-school for additional help. Since the course is hard please do not blame your failures on him and make sure to put in the effort because for some people who previously excelled in math, this is your first hard math class. Content in the class is huge so be prepared to learn and go try hard until then and study for the APs. Chances are if you can stay in his class and put in the work you can get a 4 or 5.

    Course highlights:

    From this course I learned about differential, integral, and series calculus. Beforehand this course looked too hard but I ultimately learned that a low test grade is not the end of the world. Try your best!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work hard until the APs. After the APs you still have work but its relatively easier ;)
