AP course selection review: STEM classes

In this second installment of AP reviews including AP STEM courses, Mary Frances and Georgie investigate STEM related courses and see if any of these classes could be right for you.
AP course selection review: STEM classes

AP Calculus AB: “students study limits and continuity of functions, derivatives, and integrals along with their properties outlined by the college board.”

“This class requires a lot of effort and forces you to think about math in different ways,” said Mary Kate Rath ‘24

AP Calculus BC: “Calculus BC is an extension of Calculus AB. Topics include parametric, polar, and vector functions, differential equations and slope fields, polynomial approximations and infinite series, and more applications of integrals.” 

”the class is challenging and you have to be motivated,” said Sienna Noh ‘25

Aside from her studies Sienna Noh ‘25 can be found on the turf playing field hockey.

AP Statistics: “This course acquaints students with major concepts and tools for, analyzing and drawing conclusions from data.”

“AP Statistics is a good class to take because the class connects with both AP Psychology as well as AP Biology,” said Emily Fisher ‘24 

AP Biology: “The course studies the core scientific principles, theories, and processes that govern living organisms and biological systems. This is definitely a challenging course and you need to be okay with working independently. The content is overall very interesting but be prepared to do work and think about many topics differently. 

AP Physics (algebra based): “students cultivate their understanding of physics through inquiry based investigations as they explore these topics: kinematics; dynamics; circular motion and gravitation; energy; momentum; simple harmonic motion; torque and rotational motion.”

“Remember that we have a lot of flexibility so your roster says a lot about you,” said Mr Gomes.

Take classes that challenge you but also interest you. Do not forget to talk to the current teachers and upperclassmen so you can have multiple perspectives. Finally do not stress too much about next year everything that is meant to happen will happen. If science is not your thing check out the last installment where we investigated the humanities.
