    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking Pre-Calculus one hundred percent! Taking this course not only prepares you for Calculus but can also put you ahead of people who jumped right in the Calculus. Getting the head start will really help an individual succeed in what they're trying to reach in life.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of taking this course was my teacher, Mr. Eggl. He really made sure that the class knew the material well and prepared us for every quiz and test phenomenally. He moved at a pace that was just right, and finding the balance for that can be hard for some teachers. In previous years I had struggled in math, but in this semester I have an A and aspire to keep it that way.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    When taking math classes you want to go to all the classes you can. If you miss one day, you may miss a crutial piece of of a step in solving an equation or something. As for keeping a good grade in the class doing the assigned homework is the key. Getting extra practice is the most important step because it helps you remember how to do the problems and makes studying a lot easier.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It has no value in the real world. I don't particularly like math anyway, but when I am never going to use it in the real world, why waste my brain space? The no calculator or formulas rule was also a challenge, as realistically, I will always have access to one, and the formulas are easy enough to find online.

    Course highlights:

    I learned more about how to do do complex math without a calculator.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you struggle in Algebra, definitely get a tutor beforehand so they are available throughout the course. Unless you want to pursue this as a career, or it is required, I wouldn't take this course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher is great help, his teaching style matches the style of the AP Calculus teacher. I learned a lot from his class.

    Course highlights:

    Introduced the fundamentals of calculus.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    He is available for help, so go to him when you need it. Use the study guides.
