First of all, thanks for looking at this. Please give me suggestions on how to improve this.Prompt: What is your favorite class and why? (1500 characters) My essay is 1283 characters.
If I told my Calculus teacher that Calculus was my favorite class, she would be shocked. During a typical day in Calculus, I have a puzzled look on my face and I'm more than likely ripping my hair out, but somehow, I enjoy the challenge. Compared to my previous math classes, Calculus is more technical than mathematical. This means that in Calculus, how you do the same problem changes according to the scenario. For example, the Mean Value Theorem (MVT) and Rolle's Theorem are fundamentally the same, but when it comes to solving the equation, you either set the equation equal to the slope for MVT or zero for Rolle's.
Another reason I like Calculus is because of the learning environment that my teacher provides. She, unlike other teachers, allows us to work in groups in order to help each other understand the concepts. Oftentimes, this approach allows efficient learning because it allows her to review whatever the class as a whole does not understand. Also she is very enthusiastic and eager to answer any questions. I believe that without my teacher, I wouldn't be able to solve calculus problems as well as I can now. As a matter of fact, I am grateful for having Mrs. Ruble because she taught me analytic and problem solving skills which will be necessary in college.
