    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class if you are a good math student and are able to grasp new concepts quickly. This class requires students to take prior math knowledge and apply it to the new concepts learned. One reason I would not recommend this class would simply be the difficult and fast paced nature of the class. However, if you are struggling with one of the concepts, there are plenty of opportunities to seek help from the teacher.

    Course highlights:

    One of the things I gained from being in this class was a better work ethic. In this class, there is homework almost every night, and it is taken up for a grade. Not only did I find that doing the homework was going to help my grade, it also helped me understand the concepts better. By realizing this, it helped me work harder and do homework in my other classes as well. Something else I learned from this course, besides calculus, was self determination. I set a goal to reach a certain grade in the class and I realized I was the only one who could make it happen. I worked extremely hard, and got the grade I wanted. This showed me that if I really want to make something happen, I can.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students taking this course to take extremely good notes. Write everything down even if you think you'll remember it. Good note taking will help tremendously when it comes time to study for a test. To study for a calculus test I would advise you to reread your notes once or twice and then work the test review once or twice. This will ensure that you have a good grasp on the concepts that will be on the test. If you are still confused on certain things, I highly recommend going to tutoring. Tutoring will only benefit you and make you feel more prepared for tests and quizzes. Furthermore, I advise asking questions if you do not understand something. There is no need to worry about feeling stupid because many concepts in this class are quite difficult, and there may be others in the class that are wondering the same thing that you are.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class if you are a strong math student. This course requires one to remember math from previous years and be able to know when to properly apply it. I would recommend taking the class if you plan on taking calculus in college so that you are better prepared. The only reason I would not recommend this class is simply the difficulty of it. Although I am a pretty good math student I still struggle sometimes. However, there are plenty of opportunities and chances to get help if needed.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a better work ethic from this course. Since there is homework almost every night, it made me realize that doing homework (in any class) will help you understand concepts better. It also taught me determination. I set a goal to make a specific grade, and I learned that some goals take a lot of hard work and time, but it will eventually be worth it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are taking AP Calculus I would advise you to take very good notes. It will be to your advantage to write everything down, and if you think you won't forget something, write it down anyways. Also, it is important that you ask questions if you don't understand something. There's no need to worry about if you sound stupid because asking the question is for your academic benefit, and no one else's. When studying for a test, I advise you to read back through your notes, work the review problems twice, and go to the teacher before school to ask any last minute questions.
