Honors math is harder than AP math and best colleges in the nation. Even the top 10-15% of the students in the national tests gets 'C's here. Math department and administrators do not do any reforms to make it par with other better schools around it. As a result, the students completely loose their confidence in math/ science and end up taking language and social studies related major in the college. They are doing injustice to the students and disservice to the nation when our nation needs more math and science graduates.
