This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course to those who do very well in mathematics. This is because this course is very complicated, and can sometimes be hard to master. The class is calculus, and the subject itself is not easy to understand. Along with that, the course is an AP course, which means that the class is also rigorous in the work ethics. Other than that, the class is a good intro for Calculus, in college.
Course highlights:
The highlights of this course would be how I learned to work with others much more. Since the class was working at such fast paces, I began struggling in the class. As I began struggling, I also noticed others who were also having issues. I began to consult others, and I learned so much from others. We each completed each other, in a sense that at least one of us understood a part of the problem. Another highlight of the course was the way everything in the class connected to the very beginning. We started the class with limits, and as we progressed, I was able to see the reasoning behind why limits was the first thing we started with. I enjoyed the challenge that came with keeping up with the class, as well.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
In order to succeed, in this class, you must be on top of everything. No matter how small or big the assignment is, you need to do your best. I learned in this class that every grade counts. It is important to keep this lesson in your mind when working, because it will help you to strive to do amazing on each assignment, whether it is a homework assignment, a quiz or a test. Every single piece of work counts and effects your grade. This mindset will also prepare you in college, because I learned that, in college, there are very few assignments which impact your grade. This means that you must put all your work into each assignment you do, which is just like AP Calculus AB.

Course Overview:
Ms. Antico was a fabulous teacher. She taught calculus in a way that made it understandable and fun to learn. Because of her, I was sorry to leave my calculus class. She instilled within me a love of calculus so strong, that I procured a calculus textbook to take home with me, just to ensure that I could still practice calculus and avoid losing my skills.
Course highlights:
I gained an incredible love of mathematics and the opportunity to see how complex mathematics can be applied to real-world situations.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Just because you are taking a calculus class, do not think that you are done with arithmetic! Brush up on basic arithmetic and algebra, and your test scores will thank you.
