    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course guided us through a hands on experience with Calculus BC. We learned to use calculus in practical ways, to solve real world problems.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite parts of this course were seeing the practical applications of the concepts I had learned in Calculus.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to do all the homework and ask questions immediately when anything that confuses you. Going to tutorial is definitely worth it and getting behind is not. Don't be afraid to ask your teacher to go over things in tutorial even if they were already heavily discussed in class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this year long course, the professor is very knowledgable and the material is very interesting. This course is a very thorough class in Calculus and prepares students very well for the AP exam.

    Course highlights:

    The course begins with thorough discussions of what it means to have slope and the basics of differentiation. The course continues on into discussing approximations of curves using Euler's Method. The course also covers integration and ends with learning the properties of series and sequences.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to become used to studying regularly for this course. This course is demanding and will leave behind students who are careless and refuse to put in the time to learn the math. I would advise students specifically to keep up with the work outside of class and to ask the professor if they have questions or issues.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course has been a great experience so far because it has pushed me to my limits while also being enjoyable. There is always something to do in class, and it has been an excellent way to delve further into math concepts that had only been touched on before.

    Course highlights:

    I loved the group and class collaboration included with this course - almost every day, there is an opportunity to work with classmates on homework difficulties, investigations, and projects. I also enjoyed the variety of the things we did in class, as I mentioned before. It has helped me see that teamwork is incredibly important and is such a useful tool, because I don't know everything and neither do my classmates, but when we can work together, fitting together the pieces of a problem becomes much simpler.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would definitely advise any future students to not give up, even if they are failing or close to failing the course. The teachers and math TA's are always willing to help if you're struggling, so go to them! Once you get past certain obstacles, a lot of things about the course will begin to click into place, and you can pull up your grade with work and practice.
