    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Stephan Roberts is a great professor! He does a great job of explaining and is very flexible with meeting times and wants you to succeed!

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about derivites, why they are what they are and how to imply them! I also learned that even though a class is difficult, you can still pass with flying colors if you stay focused and don't let the work overwhelm you.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Calculus is a great course and I can actually tell you that you will use this in your life (even though people say you'll never use math) as it pertains to engineering, physics, etc.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The more dedication you put into the class, the easier it is. But if you don't study more and more over each the course, then you're guaranteed to fail. Never be scared to ask the teacher to repeat something or ask her a question after class

    Course highlights:

    I've gained an idea of what college is really about. And that its nothing like high school. You never in your wildest dreams imagine that you could get bad grades until you actually get one

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the homework before the lesson. Its more of an introduction than a knowledge check.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course gave me a great understanding of Calc 1 mainly due to the professor. He was great and he was definitely very knowledgeable on the content of the course. He provided many different examples during class to help the students understand the concepts that he was trying to teach. He was very good about making sure students at least moderately understood the problems before moving on to new topics.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course was the professor's ability to teach. I did much better than I anticipated in this course due to his dedication to the students. The main focuses of this course are understanding how to compute limits and learning the rules for calculating derivatives.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't panic if you don't have any prior calculus experience. I had not taken any calculus courses prior to this course and,although there were some times when I felt challenged, I ultimately did well in the course, finishing with a low A.
