“I took Calculus 1 over the summer and found it very beneficial because I had just taken it in high school so it was pretty easy and it let me jump right into Calculus 2 in the fall. As a math major, this jumpstarted my college career in a great way. I was also going into college as a 16 almost 17 year old, so the program helped ease me into the college life and prepare for the real thing.”
