Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I personally love math. All throughout high school I was really lucky to have amazing teachers and I didn't think I would find a professor in college who lived up to my expectations as a student--but I did! I really like Professor Ratliff's style of teaching and he is very approachable, which is good because math is sometimes a difficult subject and he explains things really well.
Course highlights:
First we started by reviewing logarithms and limits, then we started learning derivatives and integrals while studying topics like optimization, riemann sums, and the fundamental theorem of calculus. Overall, this course was a very good introduction to calculus and college mathematics.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Definitely do the readings and all assigned work. It is a math course, so it's easy to get behind if you fail to complete an assignment. If you ever need help, go to office hours. Like I said, Professor Ratliff is very approachable and has a pretty flexible schedule because he wants you to succeed!
