This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Valuable if you need it for college, but pretty intense.
Course highlights:
This is a college prep course. Helpful to take it in HS where you have access to more assistance.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Be ready to do the homework and study.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I love math in general, so I enjoy most of my math classes, and this one was no different. The homework is not too much, about a half hour each night. If you want a good grade in the class, you will have to work hard, but as long as you do the work, you'll be fine.
Course highlights:
In the one year I took this class, I had learned a lot. Calculus in general is a lot of math, I like to relate it to a combination of Algebra 1 and Algebra 2, taken to the next level. If you've taken Pre Calculus, then AP Calculus is actually easier than Pre Calc, or at least, in my opinion. You've already learned all the basics in Pre Calc, then AP Calc is just really two main ideas, Derivatives and Integrals, that you work on throughout the whole year.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
As I've said before, as long as you do the homework and sometimes go in for extra help, you'll be good. The teacher is very open to helping you as long as you show her that you are willing to learn. Do not expect to come into the class to memorize and forget, this is not a memorization class. You actually need to learn the material and comprehend it because it all builds on each other.
