    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    You've already been doing well in Honors Pre-Calculus. Don't stop now. You should be at a good pace to understand and do AP Calculus AB.

    Course highlights:

    After 3 days of missing school, math took the longest to finish, and it got to crunch time two days before the test to get all the assignments together. Not fun. However, once that passed, it was down to one assignment a day (which was the longest assignment of the day) and things went much more smoothly. Concepts are easier to understand than Honors Pre-Calculus. Not much memorization.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work with good people during class. Talk or don't talk. Just don't waste time.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It was the first math class I took where I felt challenged. My previous math classes were not as rigorous as I would have liked. This was not the case for my AP Calculus AB class. While the material was a lot to take in, it wasn't unmanageable. As long as you pay attention in class and put in the work after school, it was completely doable. Maybe it was my teacher, but the class was very enjoyable for me.

    Course highlights:

    We covered so much material in this class. From derivatives of velocity to finding the volume of a cone revolved around a line on a plane, every single lesson was derived from the previous ones. All the lessons revolved around the same few things, so as long as you understand basic concepts, everything will become clear.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do the homework. While the teacher may not check every single assignment, it is a great way to go over the material you learned that day in class. Doing the homework is essential in practicing the concepts for future tests. If extra help is needed, don't be afraid to ask the teacher during lunch or after school for help.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The class delves deep into calculus through challenging problems. DIxon is a great teacher to get help from and provides a notes guide that you use throughout the year that helps for the AP test.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed one of the chapters in specific: using integrals to find volumes of rotated shapes. The graphic aspect of the chapter was enjoyable for me since I'm a visual learner.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't be afraid to ask for help! Get a tutor if you want too. Most importantly, take the chapter tests seriously. They impact your grades a LOT.
