Class offered in some high schools. Introduces pretty basic mathematical concepts compared to "advanced" math. Frequently described as "impossible," "retarded," and "useless" by many students, but occasionally enjoyed by uber-nerds who later go on to become obscenely rich and hire the aforementioned students as manservants.
Joe Cool: "AP Calculus sucks monkey balls. Let's go get wasted."
Uber-nerd: "Wow, partial differential equations are fascinating. With some minor modifications, I bet these formulas could even predict the stock market..."
Possibly the most difficult and rigorous class
offered at ANY HIGH SCHOOL
! This class will determine how much stress one can go through. Even students that have a 4.0 GPA
have a difficult time in this class. Some students
that have a GPA of about 1.0-2.9(if possible they will get in this class!) and students that have a GPA of about 3.0-3.9 might not be recommended by their counselor
unless they have at least a 85% in all of their math
classes. This class is taken by mostly all Seniors
and a few Juniors
if possible. If a Freshman
or a Sophomore
was accepted to take this class...THEY WILL NOT MAKE IT OUT ALIVE AND THEIR GPA WILL HORRIBLY DROP...RAPIDLY! Especially if the teacher
a student has is a dick. :(
Senior Student- "Ugh... Hell Week
has officially started and now I have to pull off all nighter
s every 2 days to study for my lame upcoming final in AP Calculus!"
Meanwhile after school
AP Calculus Teacher-"Heh Heh Heh. I can't wait to see the look on every student's face since I threw in several Calculus II and III problems.
Final Exam Day
Senior Student- "Phew. I pulled off 3 all nighters for this piece of sh*t Final I'm about to take." *Looks at Final* "WTF?! My teacher never taught me this!"
*AP Teacher looks at student and laughs in his head* "Muhahahaha!!!"
The most ridiculous math class you'll ever take in high school in which the lowest grades you'll ever make you're happy to receive. Side effects include: lack of sleep, absence of a life, and/or loss of a soul.
"Dude, I have my AP Calculus final tomorrow; FML..."
"I got a 56!"
"Way to go!" (insert high five here)
A difficult class available in high school that involves hard concepts like derivatives and integration.
I'm not taking AP calculus because it's too hard.
Hard. AP Calculus is the new "hard."
"That test was AP Calculus"
I don't know what everybody keeps griping about. This was EASY! Especially the AP Calculus BC exam. If you want to rack your brain good and hard, go try some 'real' math first, e.g. abstract algebra or functional analysis.
AP Calculus AB student: "Oh my gawd this is SO HARD!!"
Senior Math major: "Bitch, please. I'll take related rates and integration by parts over rings and external direct products any day."
