Course Overview:
Calculus is a rigorous/difficult math course. To this end, it doesn't come easy for everyone. I would recommend this course because it gives people who do not traditionally excel in math a chance to try out mathematics without getting overwhelmed. It's a course that's considered intermediate as it is one of the beginning steps towards a mathematics major and one that is required as a general for almost all majors.
Course highlights:
We learned the basics of calculus such as solving complex equations with multiple variables. Learned about powers and long term division and finding more accurate ways to find solutions. We learned about how it connects to other subjects such as physics and how it can be helpful in finding a more accurate solution
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
The best advice that I can give is to ask the professor for help when you need it. Calculus is a subject that's easy if you practice it day to day but can become overwhelming if you procrastinate or only look at it from time to time. Another helpful tip is to make study groups with peers. To this end, if any questions arise, there are multiple people to sort through it; as the famous saying goes "two heads are better than one." On that note, there is more leniency with the professor if a group consults them rather than an individual that sticks out.
