Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
If you are fine with algebra but struggle with calculus, take this course. No other professor will explain the necessary concepts more effectively than Dr. Nanes.
Course highlights:
I took AP Calc BC in high school, yet there were still things I learned in this course that I didn't learn there. Taking this course with Dr. Nanes also gave me a much clearer understanding of calculus concepts.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
Don't just do the homework that is assigned. Go through the book and work through different types of problems over and over until you can do them without looking at an answer sheet or your notes. Practicing a lot is the best way to ensure a good grade on the exams. Also try to attend every lecture, they flow nicely together and Dr. Nanes is not boring at all anyway.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This is a good intro course into calculus, and the teacher holds productive office hours
Course highlights:
Study until you have a strong grasp on concepts. Frequent quizzes and cumulative tests means you need to be ready
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Study a lot, watch online resources, go to office hours
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This teacher is amazing. If you have taken Calculus before, she goes over alot of the foundations that may have slipped your mind during the summer. If you haven't taken Calculus before, she goes over the information at a decent pace, and is willing to answer question and help you out during office hours.
Course highlights:
The highlight of the course was understanding the foundations of Calculus with an awesome, tough yet fair, and interesting teacher. We learned about the reasoning behind the limits, derivatives, integrals, and other topics which are covered in most high school Calculus classes. However, we also learned about things such as Newton's method and hyperbolic trig functions, which may have been glossed over or ignored in other Calculus classes.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
To succeed, I would recommend going to CASTLE, always staying on top of work, and i. If you are struggling, team up with your peers, or even people who sit near you. If you don't understand something, someone's bound to. Don't be afraid of asking for help. Your need to pass the class is greater than your fear.
