Course Overview:
Mrs. Bricker teaches concepts very clearly and is willing to spend extra time with students in order to help them achieve understanding. Her homework assignments are never excessive and are always very practical, giving us enough practice to efficiently absorb the information.
Course highlights:
I learned advanced calculus that Mrs. Bricker perfectly linked to previous Honors Algebra II and Honors Pre-calculus classes that I had taken. We learned how to calculate related rates and the volume of a solid other than the basic shapes we learn in Algebra I. Overall, it is a beautiful class.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Do your homework so that you can ask questions. When I didn't do my homework, I didn't understand the concept as well. Completing the assignment helped me grasp the concept pretty much on my own. It made class so much more interesting because I was ready to apply the new knowledge to the practice we had in class. Don't be scared to ask for help. A lot of this stuff takes thinking, and you need the people around you to check your thinking. The most dangerous thing in math is letting yourself miss a tiny mistake. That can throw off your whole answer. While some graders keep reading your thought process and award you points for it, making sure that you remember every detail of a thought process you have studied is a lot harder than knowing how the concept actually works. You need to remember how to use the concepts thoroughly to come to the correct answer.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because it can really prepare students for the math they will see in college. Math is important to know as it is utilized in many different types of careers, but it is imperative that students be prepared for college-level math so they can be prepared to attain a high GPA.
Course highlights:
I, obviously, gained a higher understanding of math and what many different concepts of mathematics are. But, I also gained a better ability to study and manage my time. This course requires students to keep up with daily homework, because it is needed in order to prepare for big tests. This gives students the tools they need to study the material and score well on exams.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Any student planning to take this course must stay up-to-date with the daily homework assignments. Although they are worth points, the main reason for this is to be prepared for the big tests that they will face. Tests and quizzes are worth the most in this course, so students must make sure they are prepared to take these tests with ease.
