Course Overview:
I would recommend this course to anyone that needs to take Calc 160. Barber is a genuinely nice person and cares about his students. If you're struggling or don't understand a concept he is more than happy to meet you at his office hours or find a time to meet. He always gives away extra credit throughout the class, so definitely answer the questions he asked even if you are unsure whether or not the answer is correct. Barber also drops the lowest test score.
Course highlights:
This course is an introductory class for Calculus and applying it to the realm of business. You learn how to derive and also integrate functions and then understand the graphing relationship. Also, Barber teaches the relationships between revenue, price, profit, and demand. He also shows the how to find the marginal values of those all well.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
I purchased the Calculus book, but only actually used it around two times so I would not buy it. Barber is always willing to help out a student in order for them to understand, in case you're really worried about math. Barber also teaches Math 155 which is worth taking as well if not already taken.
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
I would certainly recommend taking this class with Barber. Barber is genuinely nice and cares about his students. The class is not difficult whatsoever, but can get confusing at times. Barber is always willing to help students at his office hours. If he can tell you're putting in effort, he'll reflect that in your grade. Also he is always offering extra credit during the class for answering questions, so make sure to always answer questions even if it may not be correct.

Advice for students:
Barber can be confusing during his lectures so it is extremely beneficial to attend the SI sessions, even if you do not have an exam because there are also quizzes. I bought the book and probably only used it twice, so I wouldn't recommend buying it. I did not mind going to this class at all, and recommend him to everyone. He also drops the lowest test score.

Go to the SI sessions weekly if you want to do well on the tests because in class he can be confusing. Also, don't buy the book I opened mine only twice during the semester. He is genuinely one of the nicest people you'll meet, and I didn't mind having to go to his class. He also teaches Math 155.
