This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I am honestly struggling in this course. Coming from no prior background in calculus, I have been at a disadvantage. Mr. Roberts is a good teacher, if you have had some experience before his class. I personally would recommend taking a pre-calculus class if it is available.
Course highlights:
I have learned how to properly calculate derivatives. At the beginning of the semester, I was so confused and my grade reflected that. As the semester continues, I am gradually improving, as well as my grades.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
If you have no prior introduction to calculus, I would strongly recommend taking a pre-calculus class. If I would have realized how lacking I really was, I would have taken one myself.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Although his English isn't the best, he tries his hardest to get the concept as easy to understand as possible, and is always willing to help. He's a really funny guy and his lectures are pretty interesting, albeit mathematics. He has a blackboard in his office and will work out any questions you may have.
Course highlights:
The problem solving skills needed for further Calc classes. It's less of the calculus, but more on attacking the problem, after learning how to set it up.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Do those practice problems/homework. Very good way to study before the test!
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I highly recommend this course simply because the professor was amazing.
Course highlights:
The professor was great at explaining everything she did. During the course we learned the many applications and uses of derivatives.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Don't forget to do the online homework and mathematica assignments. All the homework counts as a test grade at end of the course.
