Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because I think that it was very interesting and I was able to learn a lot from this course.
Course highlights:
Taking this course has furthered my knowledge in mathematics and allowed me to think on a more theoretical level.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
I think that reading the textbook chapters before and after going to lecture is very helpful. It helped me understand the concepts in class a lot better and also helped with the homework assignments.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I highly recommend Calculus 3 because students will learn how calculus applies to real-life on an even larger scale than Calculus 1 and 2. From this class, I was able to learn not only calculus 3 concepts but also good study habits due to the rigor and difficulty of the course.
Course highlights:
The highlight of the course was attending a review session held by the professor and listening to her talk about calculus 3 without any time constraints. She was clearly knowledgeable and passionate about the subject and was able to answer all of our questions with great ease and great examples!
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Do not be intimidated by this course. It will be confusing in the beginning, but once you develop good study habits and find a good study group, the course will become significantly easier. Don't be afraid to ask for help and take advantage of office hours, PILOT sessions, and the Math Help Room.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Vamsi is an exceptional lecturer, with a knack for higher level mathematics that I have never encountered before. This class is challenging, but very manageable if the correct amount of time is put in. Try to take it with Dr. Pinagli if you can.
Course highlights:
This class is a great pre req for any upper level physics that you might be taking. Multiple integration and gradients are important concepts, as well as hammering home any calc 2 or 1 that you still might be hazy on.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
Try to take this class with Vamsi if possible, for he is a one-of-a-kind lecturer and a true specimen on the subject. Most people will find this class very challenging, but if you put in the time, it isn't that bad actually
