Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
The Professor is very soft spoken and simply reads off the notes rather then explaining the materials we are learning that day.
Course highlights:
This is a great class if you are going to be a business major and is relative to your future career rather than a random math just to get the college credit.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Study a little bit everyday and make sure you understand the material each day after class because it goes very quickly and if you aren't understand a concept from one class it will only make the other material harder to learn.
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
This course is a must take and Boxmyer is one of the best teachers at the university
Course highlights:
I learned all of the fundamentals of calculus and how to apply myself to the course.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
You need to pay attention to class and attend even though it is not required.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This class gave me an in depth understanding of a precalc background and the concepts that are needed to introduce calculus in the least confusing way. My professor was very consistent and dedicated to her subject matter, she always had notes online for each class both filled in and an empty set so you could try the examples yourself before class. Her examples she would do each class and the detailed notes she provided made for a very simple and organized path through the course. Would recommend this class to anyone who isn't the best at math but has to take upper level courses for their major.
Course highlights:
Highlights include a brief two weeks at the beginning of the course where a review took place. Hazra doesn't just start off with intimidating new calculus lessons, she eases into the new concepts by showing you what pre-calculus rules and strategies tie into the new material. I feel like I gained a solid basis of calculus and everything it entails, although it is a much harder math class than your typical high school algebra and precalc, this calss is a perfect introducation to the high level math classes at Alabama.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
The best tips for success throughout this class include, actually going to class because doing the examples and seeing the solving process is so critical; especially in math. Second would be to always print the notes prior to class, Hazra puts the notes with examples that you will be doing that day prior to your meeting time with plenty of work space so you can follow along and solve as you sit in the lecture. Lastly would be to do the homework ahead of time as best you can, stay on top of the deadlines because the homework can be lengthy but if you're consistent with turning it in on time, the homework grade can really boost your overall grade at the end of the semester.
