How many hours a day should you study math?
I’d say 6 to 8 hours per day, broken up into 2-hour periods with 1 hour of break in between. Any longer and you’ll start seeing yourself burning out. About 8 hours a day. At least that’s how much time my above average classmates put into studying math (including 5 hours of classes a day).
What is the hardest math course?
So, Calculus II isn’t even the most difficult calculus course, let alone the most difficult math course. The most difficult math courses I have encountered thus far have included advanced calculus, abstract algebra, and topology (and they will generally only continue to get more challenging each semester).
Is trigonometry harder than calculus?
It seems as though calculus applies trigonometric functions in the same way algebra does, i.e. it’s a system of operations which doesn’t depend on things like trig’ in any way, but rather serves as a foundation/context for using trig’. Actually, it seems like basic calculus is easier than basic trigonometry.
Can you learn calculus without trigonometry?
You might do fine in calculus without it, but precalc is really designed to offer more practice in algebra and trig, which is really helpful when trying to conquer calc. You don’t really need to know all that much Trig, just the basic rules, which you can pick up on by having to use them so often.
Is Trig harder than algebra?
Algebra 2/trig is a bit harder. But it is not that bad, as long as you keep up with your work DAILY. If I were to rank them out in terms of difficulty it would be Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, then Trigonometry.
Is Precalc easier than Calc?
For me Calc 1 was easier than precalc. Precalc is a lot of memorization and understanding trigonometry (seriously make sure you have trig down!), but calculus is just understand some new concepts that all flow pretty well. The CALCULUS is easy, it’s the algebra that can be difficult.
Why is Calc so hard?
Q: Why is calculus so hard for most people? The short answer is that their Algebra and Trigonometry mastery is not sufficient, as well as the understanding of functions. The long answer is that only about 15% ever master basic Algebra, and only about 60% of the ones that do master it ever get to Calculus.
