GAITHERSBURG, Md. (WUSA) -- There are no excuses to miss your home work in Mr. Jernigan's calculus class at Quince Orchard High School. If there's a snow day, or you're sick, the work is still right at your fingertips. He uploads a lot of his lessons to YouTube!!
Students can do the equations at their own pace. If they don't understand the exercise the first time, they can start the video over again. How cool is that ?!!
When they submit their homework on line, Mr. Jernigan is available to correct it and send it right back.
During last year's "Snow-maggedon" in the DC area, there was no school for a week, but Mr. Jerningan's AP Calculus never missed a beat.
The student-teacher combination is a powerful one. Last year, Mr. Jernigan's class got the highest grade on the AP calculus final exam in school history.
