What does Pre-Calculus mostly consist of?
Pre-Calculus is just a course to ready you for everything that is Calculus. It is relatively easy in my opinion. It is mainly a refresher course to get your brain thinking of the old stuff that you have learned in Algebra 2 in a more accelerated form.
As a tutor, what do you think is the hardest part about Calculus.
As a tutor who is currently in her third calculus class, I would have to say that the hardest part about calculus is remembering all of the past rules from algebra and previous math classes and applying them to this knew foreign subject. Calculus is like its own math language and so learning that new language while remembering the old stuff can be a little challenging.
Why are most students afraid of Algebra?
From personal experience, I find that most people are afraid to enter math classes like Algebra because they just feel like they are not good at it. Either they have been told they are not at some point in their life or they have maybe failed it one too many times and they are discouraged. In reality, it is not a scary concept at all, it just takes a little bit of focus, time and a clear head.
