This class was tough.
Course Overview:
If you excel at math, and this is your only option for a math course at the high school, take this class. It will give you a general overview of the material before college. But I do reccomend taking Calculus before this class because statistics is more difficult to comprehend.
Course highlights:
STATISTICS IS NOT A MATH CLASS! The actual math part of statistics are simple equations. What sets statistic apart from other math classes is that you interpret data and make conclusions for real life situations. All of the different types of equations are very easy to mix up, so you want to pay attention. We also review some things relating to probability and matrices.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Again, only take this class if you have completed all other math classes at the high school and this is your only option. The instruction is not the best but it does prepare you for college. I would reccomend retaking the course in college.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
If you excel at math and want a challenge, this is the class for you. It moves slower than a college course but is just as difficult, so it's easier for high school students to manage. Also, Mr. Stallons is an incredible teacher who teaches you more than just math. He has taught me life lessons that have changed my future for the better. Overall, the course was difficult but well worth it.
Course highlights:
Anything you would learn in Calculus AB at a college, you learned in this course. We covered everything from related rate problems, trigonometry, integrals, etc. A lot of the ideas were hard to comprehend big picture wise, but if you did the math step by step, you were fine.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Although the homework isn't required, do it anyways. My best test scores came from units where I took the time to complete the homework. It is extra work but it pays off in the end.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Stallons is an awesome teacher, and his stories are the best.
Course highlights:
This class is similar to a college math class, yet it still is fun in a way,
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Don't think it will be a class you can breeze through, but don't freak out when the grades are different than any other classes you have.
