Hello forum, I'm a high school senior, who is taking a AP Calculus course, I enjoy math a lot and I'm attending Missouri S&T next fall to pursue a degree in physics. My problem is my AP Calculus teacher is not a very good teacher, I've even talked to others in my class about this and most of them did not even sign up for the college credit this year because they felt they needed to take the course again. Let me explain. Most of my class, even the normal straight A kids are getting low grades, she does not teach the material very well, most of the time there is a lot of confusion, it seems like she just rushes through the material, she also likes to go extremely off topic most of the time with half of the class being story time, and also my class sadly encourages this. The overall classroom atmosphere is very bad. I often have to go learn things on my own, and it is a struggle sometimes as I am taking two other AP courses which are being taught correctly and rigorously. Then she does things like give take home tests, which I thought was weird for a AP course?, but even when she gives these take home tests most of the class still struggles and even are constantly asking other math teachers for help. I must mention this year is she has been pregnant all year and will be leaving for a while in April, that is why I also feel bad, because I understand that but I don't know if that is the specific reason, and I don't mean to offend anybody. So my question is has anybody had any experiences like this in a AP course or a higher level class?
