This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This course is required for students in the engineering school, so I recommend taking it mostly for that reason but it also does provide a good foundation in multi variable calculus that is necessary for later classes. However, I do recommend trying to attend a different lecture than Gomez's. He spends most of the lecture defining arbitrary variables and assumptions rather than actually focusing on helping the students learn the concepts.
Course highlights:
The highlights of this course were learning how to deal with partial derivatives and multiple integration as well as learning how to use Green's Theorem, Stokes Theorem, and the Divergence Theorem.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
This is a difficult class but office hours are incredibly helpful. I definitely recommend attending office hours.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Very scientific design of course structure. Three lectures throughout the week, with two tutorials. Gives students enough time to go through the material before next lecture.
Course highlights:
Application of multivariable calculus in engineering.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Use math support, the walk-in feature gives more freedom.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I recommend this class because it provides excellent foundational knowledge of multivariable calculus that is very important for engineers. Professor Jenkins does an excellent job reviewing the concepts and then providing relevant examples.
Course highlights:
This course is very challenging, but it is focused on very important topics that will be important in later years. I now have a new way of looking at numbers and math, especially since most of the work is done in three dimensions.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
It is quite helpful to read the section in the textbook before the lecture. Also, I didn't start going to office hours until about halfway through the semester, but I should have started that earlier. Office hours definitely saved my grade this semester.
