First college class ever, and I'm in High School - May 9th 2010, 07:21 PM

So, I'm a junior in High School right now. I'm starting a Calculus 1 class at my local community college. I'm kind of nervous, because I don't think I'm going to know anyone in the class, and it's my first serious class at a college. What should I expect from this class? :S

Expect to have a lot of freedom. Usually community colleges are less strict and if you don't do your work, tough luck, you're out. Best thing to do is be mature, make some friends around you, and do your work. It's not like high school. People are there because they want to be, not because they have to. It's a more learning positive environment.

+1, it'll also be a lot easier than Calc 1 at Michigan or MSU, which is practically a weed-out course. Good choice on taking it at community college.

I'd be stupid not to. I have the opportunity to get Calc 2 and 3 for free next year paid for by my HS... Calc itself is just an easy class.. I don't know how it'll be in 7 weeks, but I've already taken Calc in High School, why not take a class and get credit for it?

Like it was previously mentioned, you'll have a lot more freedom. Your professor will lay out all the assignments, all the grading expectations, and then leave it at that. If you have questions, don't be afraid to ask them, they'd rather you ask than not.

If you know you struggle to get work done on time, make sure to keep the syllabus/schedule near you. I also suggest finding a buddy in the class who'd be willing to send notes/help you study if you miss a class or feel you need help.
