    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    He offers study sessions before exams and is often available for one-on-one sessions. Bu in his class, of the class isn't doing that well he will give pop quizzes on the daily basis, and sometimes shorten the lesson just to give the pop quizzes. Also, he can be super rude and strict at time. Overall, he doesn't make the class too hard, but he can be rude and ridiculous sometimes.

    Course highlights:

    I learned more about calculus and how it works. He will sometimes rant on about how certain things came into place in calculus or the jobs it can be used for, which can be good for some, it's needed to pass the class though, it's just extra info

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just go to his office hours if you want help. He'll help with homework too. Also, go to the study sessions, if you understand the material in the packets he gives for the sessions, you will do good on the tests. And do your work haha.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Randy is one of the best professors I have had through all of my years of schooling. The way the course is structured means you have to move fast, yet he knows when it is important to slow down so that the students understand the information. This class is challenging yet very rewarding!

    Course highlights:

    The fast pace really prepared me for other math classes that I have taken at Eastern. I enjoyed Randy's subtle jokes and humor as it was the highlight of my day. This course had a lot of material to offer from finding volume, work, energy, derivatives, antiderivatives, and so much more!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Plan your schedule accordingly, I took this course at the end of my day so that the information we learned that day was fresh in my mind when I did the homwork that night! Also, complete the summer/winter packet he gives you prior to starting the class and have a good understanding of the information in the packet, as it is crucial to success in the course! Good Luck!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is extremely tough. It weeds out those who really want to develop their math skills and those who don't. It requires a lot of abstract ideas and thoughts, and also builds upon many of the concepts that you should have learned in Calculus 1. If you struggled in there or aren't an expert with those concepts, you will certainly struggle with this course. The main problem with my experience was the professor, so definitely try to avoid him if at all possible. He just writes notes without really ensuring that you understand. He also writes these notes extremely fast so most people are generally behind and can't pay attention to him while he's speaking. Great guy, but meh teacher.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights for me were when I finally understood something as it felt like I just solved a brand new problem. I learned a bunch of different engineering, computer science, and statistical concepts (ie. things such as probability curves and derivatives).

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You should only take this course if absolutely necessary. Know your information from Calculus 1 and be prepared to be spending a lot of time trying to understand.
