This class was tough.
Course Overview:
It completely changed my mind about math by broadening my perspective on the millions of ways that numbers and graphs are related in ways I never knew. There are so many applications for it that you'd never expect to make a formula for, such as water filling a pipe. On top of it all, the teacher was fantastic and easily one of the best I've ever had.
Course highlights:
My favorite unit was Integration. The biggest new concept of calculus was Differentiating, and Integration is kind of doing that backwards. I grasped it surprisingly quickly and it was really fun and interesting to learn. We did problems and hands-on activities that involved playdoh to visualize how you can build or take apart anything using integrals.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
This is an extremely hard class and if you haven't taken AB Calc before, as I didn't, you will struggle, but at the end it is so worth it when you've learned all these things that you never believed that math could cover. Study tips: practice problems, go in for extra help, and make charts and drawings with all the formulas and theorems since there are a lot. It seems intimidating but work hard and it will pay off.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
