This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Becker is an excellent teacher that clearly guides students through the course of Calculus II. He is always available in the Math Center and willing to help students in any way that he can.
Course highlights:
Infinite summations and integrals were very present in this course. The first half of the semester is spent working with both definite and indefinite integrals. This includes solids of revolution and the properties of limits. The second half of the semester is about infinite series and conversions to integrals. Most of the time here is spent learning to evaluate series to see if they converge or diverge.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure to come to class everyday, especially if the class is only twice a week. Becker may cover half a chapter in the two hour block. This obviously includes many new topics that will be lost on a student that was not present. Coming to class is also important due to the frequency of Becker's quizzes. Missing one day could leave the student either missing an important quiz, or valuable information for a future quiz or even test.
