    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it makes you really think about the processes that you need to take and can have practical use for real life situations.

    Course highlights:

    Optimization Problems were one of the more practical things learned during this class. You look for a way to maximize or minimize a unit. An example being trying to maximize building a fence or minimize costs.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest going to tutoring and asking a lot of questions during class when you do not understand something. Professors are able to break it down in to parts that help understanding.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course, but you should take it with Frank Shaw for sure. He made the course really easy, and he is a wonderful professor.

    Course highlights:

    We learned all about derivatives, how to graph them, and tricks at making them seem easier (less daunting). There was some other stuff involved in the course, but the main thing to get out of it was understanding derivatives.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your homework, and do all the extra credit you can, because you never know when you will need the extra points.
