Originally (I think) a College Board Advanced Placement
test, my high school
has implemented it as the most worthless math class ever dreamed of. A much more descriptive name would be "Calculus for people who never understood Algebra". They claim it is supposed to move half as fast as Calculus BC
, the real calculus class, and is to cover the first semester of college calculus in a year of high school. We're three weeks in, and are finally allowed to open the book (to start a lesson BC did on the third day
. Topics slated for the end of the semester, I already know from Pre-Cal
last year. The simple derivative
(covered extensively last year) is spoken of as a magical, mystical knowledge that we might
be shown in the coming weeks, if we're good.
I am stuck there because of a scheduling conflict
, and couldn't complain enough in real life.
