This class was tough.
Course Overview:
He doesn't go extremely into detail about what he's teaching. He loves what he does, and he's able to keep my focus, but he has specific ways he likes things done, and if you don't do it the way he likes it, you won't pass. I am great at calculus but I'm barely passing his classes because of the way he grades.
Course highlights:
He is highly energetic and was able to hold my attention. He's also willing to meet outside of class to help you. I learned some interesting concepts from him, like where certain equations came from or the logic behind them.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
Absolutely see him when you can to go over concepts you do not understand 100%. Look over his practice midterms to see the way he wants the questions to be answered, otherwise you will not pass the midterm.

Course Overview:
Amazing professor, encouraging, funny and understanding. We had three lectures a week, two discussion sections, and a weekly quiz. Two midterms, two very interesting computer assignments that were relevant to our coursework using Mathematica. Now I am currently studying for the final. Lets hope it goes well!
Course highlights:
I learned how to compute volumes of all types of shapes. We learned how to solve the most absurd problems using new methods of integration. I don't want to sound two nerdy, but it was very exciting to experience for the first time how abstract, powerful, and broad the field of mathematics is.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Pick a teacher with good reviews, it will make it or break it! Challenge yourself to do as many problems as you can per week. Practice does not even make perfect in this course. It is very interesting, but you need to be willing to put in the work in order to succeed.

Course Overview:
If you like challenging math courses, Calculus II will constantly do so and is enjoyable to learn!
Course highlights:
The highlight is definitely working with others to study or do homework. It's always fun to learn from others and Calculus II is a course where it's necessary. Both helping others understand a topic or learning a topic is a great experience.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure you that you provide enough time to study and practice. Calculus II will require more than just knowing the material, mastering topics is essential.
