    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Calculus may not be on many people's minds when they think about a favorite course, yet I felt that Calculus I was actually one of the best classes to take in the beginning of my college career. I am finishing up the semester with a 97% and in order to keep my grade as an A, all I need to do is score a 59% or higher on my final. That's right; I am completely serious. How is that possible? I followed three reasonable guidelines that I heard back in August: 1. Keep up with the homework; 2. Pay attention to the lectures; 3. Don't be afraid to ask for help. This class has been great because Mr. Aeshliman gave us those guidelines and even told us that that is how to pass his class. He gave thorough expectations and they were definitely reasonable. The lectures in class are also very good. Mr. Aeschliman likes to go through every step of a problem and process so everything is understood. He's also really funny and likes to keep the energy in the room positive. The class also has a student instructor which is really beneficial for seeking assistance. He even holds a study group for an hour before each class meeting. Overall, I would highly recommend his class. The work load is moderate and the lectures are very good. As long as you keep up with the work, you're golden.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of derivative and integration rules. I also learned how to handle college courses. This is a pretty low level course in college math so it is beneficial to take it earlier on and get an idea of what to expect out of college courses rather than high school courses. It will challenge you at times, but it is also quite easy to do well if you follow my advice.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    1. Definitely do all of the homework. The tests are based off of the homework and in-class lectures. Make sure to review your notes and homework before exams. 2. Seek out help from an SI or go to the ASC tutoring center for help. All of the tutors are very nice and great at explaining processes. 3. Attend the study group if possible. It is extremely beneficial and it is right before the class meets which is convenient. At the end of the semester, he also gives extra credit for attending most study group meetings. (There will only be about 2-4 extra credit opportunities so take advantage of them all) 4. Practice the little things very often. For example, the trigonometric identities, derivative rules, and integration rules are expected to be memorized at some point of the class. Make sure to write down all of the formulas just once a week and then again right before an exam and you'll be set.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Summer semesters are never easy, even with a calculus professor as proficient as mine (Jeff Parent), summer calculus was extremely difficult

    Course highlights:

    Derrivatives were the biggest point, but I found maximizing surface area to stick with me better than the rest

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to study until you drop, and never be afraid to say "I don't understand"
