Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
It's a wonderful algebra course!
Course highlights:
I learned the importance of algebra in real-world situations.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
My advice to others is to be persistent with your work
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this class because the course gives students a stable base for those who are moving onto Honors Calculus or AP Calculus. The class is very fast paced and is a lot of work but it is very beneficial for higher math classes. Mr. Meadows has a strict way of teaching that helps students learn the basic structure of the material to build off of in future math classes.
Course highlights:
The course is basically a review of everything that was learned in Algebra and Geometry. I was retaught the basics from the quadratic formula to how to do a sign chart in a new way. There were many definitions and formulas to touch base on like point-slope and standard slope forms of a line as well as the horizontal line test that were forgotten. All-in-all this class was a quick brush up on everything learned in Algebra and Geometry courses.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Some tips would to be memorize and understand definitions and formulas. There are a lot of memory quizzes. There is a lot of homework for this class that is graded based on effort. Sometimes the teacher gives you a couple extra days to turn in your work but don't take advantage of that all the time. If you procrastinate you will end up with a lot of work to do, so keep up on homework. Take the time to look over notes and homework before tests and quizzes, some of the same questions are on them.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Mr Meadows is an excellent teacher. He is very thorough and will take time to explain something if you don't understand. He has high expectations but you will leave his classroom prepared for your next level of math courses. He is willing to meet with you one on one if needed.
Course highlights:
A calculator is definitely a necessity in this course. There are many concepts that will be learned in this course which include but are not limited to: patterns, linear and quadratic equations, graphs, sequences and series to name a few. I feel this course definitely helps you prepare for the ACT as many of the concepts learned do appear on the ACT.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
My advice would be to invest a good calculator and make sure you have the calculator everyday in class and at home when you are working on your homework. Be prepared to have homework every night and to be extremely organized in your work. Don't be messy when writing out your problems. Keep all your papers in one folder and refer to them often.
