Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
I would advise students to complete the homework and spend time working practice problems before tests and quizzes. Before every exam I also worked al if the problems from old exams available online and found this to be extremely helpful. Ultimately it takes diligence and hard work.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course since it provides the mathematics basics for the physical world around us. By utilizing complex processes, we as individuals can characterize our world by using numbers and models alone.
Course highlights:
The highlights of this course were in the breakthroughs made in understanding the concepts of our world through mathematics. This is laid out in how fluid flows and how electricity is affected by objects using the refined methods of calculus. This course taught me the most since not only do I know the concept, but I know the real world application as well.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
