As an alternative to AP Calculus, Calculus Honors will be added to the math department for juniors and seniors.
Though it follows the same standards as AP Calculus, it will not be as rigorous, due to the absence of an AP exam. There will be more of a review at the beginning of the course, covering limits in-depth, as limits are the foundations of Calculus.
In the past, every other high school in the county has offered an honors or standard level of Calculus for students to take, with Hagerty being the exception. Because of this, the county mandated that Calculus Honors be offered. However, the class will only be added if there are enough people to sign up for it.
“I don’t know how much of an interest there will be to be honest because Mrs. Guzman does such a bang-up job [with AP Calculus],” assistant principal Jesse Walker said.
