This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I liked this class a lot. It was set up so that it should have been relatively easy. I made it harder on myself by not doing homework, since Prof. Salacuse puts homework problems on the quizzes, tests, and exams (I thought I'd be fine because I took AP Calc in High School, which only goes so far). Prof. Salacuse is a really good teacher, and I definitely recommend him.
Course highlights:
Prof. Salacuse is a very good teacher, and he helped make Calc 2 interesting for me, especially when we got into areas under curves and making volumes.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Do your homework! Prof. Salacuse gets homework problems and puts them in the quizzes and such, so that is key. Practice as much as you need, but at the very least do your homework
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Professor Ruben is very effective professor who makes sure that you understand the concepts and gives you all the time you need for any questions you have.
Course highlights:
I took his calculus 3 course and what I enjoyed most about the way he taught a topic in multiple ways so it was much easier to digest. In addition, he would also relate his teachings to how you would use it in the engineering field.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Professor Ruben's class is a little bit difficult but you will do fine if you focus on learning the concept of the question.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Professor Hayrapetyan made Calculus III easier to understand and answered any questions that he was asked. He worked through many examples and helped me feel prepared for tests. He always made the class aware of his office hours and encouraged students to come in for help.
Course highlights:
This course helped me build on my previous Calculus knowledge by delving into three dimensions. It also showed me the real-world applications of what I was learning. It showed me how multivariate calculus applied to rocket science!
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
If you take this course, you need to do the homework. There are many problems on each assignment, but they are very helpful with understanding the material.
