Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Calculus 1 is a very useful subject for math majors , biology majors and chemistry majors.
Course highlights:
Calculus 1 is the introduction to limits and derivatives. The word limit is a mathematical term that is considered when dealing with a graph. The limit is what y-value the graph approaches when x approaches a specific value . The limit can either exist or not exist at a certain point depending on whether the graph has open spots or not. If the graph has an open spot at a certain point than most likely the limit does not exist at that point . But if the graph has no breaks then the limit most likely does exist. Sometimes the limit could go to infinity or negative infinity. This happens when the graph continues indefinitely going up (positive infinity) or down (negative infinity) in the y direction. Some times the graph could go to 0. This may happen when the graph approaches the x-axis but never touches it . In calculus, we also study what's called derivatives. In calculus the derivative is the slope. There is a process of finding the derivative of a polynomial or a binomial.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Students that plan to take calculus should have a firm foundation in college algebra and trigonometry. Students should study in groups and try to do additional problems in the book that are supplemental to the homework problems that are given.

Course Overview:
I would recommend this course if you like to be challenged in mathmatics.
Course highlights:
I learned alot in this course such as the Riemann Sum and The fundamental Theorem of Calculus. Derivatives were also an Highlight.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
In this class you need a good back ground of algebra and some trig to be successful. Study tips would include just being persistent with your study habits. Also, a good tip is to know how to do chain rule quotient rule and product rule well since it comes up often that you need to apply these skills.
