This class was tough.
Course Overview:
It's such a fun course if you love math
Course highlights:
I became a stronger student. It allowed me to understand one of the most intimidating courses. Starting out was fun because I easily had the placement for it and it's just a very thorough and enjoyable class the professor made it even better.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
If you enjoy Math this is a really solid foundation for you because this math class allows for you to enter a gay way in to all other classes and science classes because this is the backbone of them all all I recommend is for you to be strong in math and take time to ask questions
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course, because many degrees that fall in the STEM category require calculus in the curriculum. This course deals with limits, definite and indefinite integrals, without getting too deep into said integrals. It is a good course to take, even if you have taken calculus in high school. If anything, it helps you understand how a college calculus course will go if you must take more than one. Also, my professor was really good at explaining all of the concepts in terms that the students could understand.
Course highlights:
I gained a lot clearer understanding of many concepts in calculus by taking this course. I had taken calculus previously in high school, but did not understand a lot of the things I learned. M171Q helped me understand concepts like the Mean Value Theorem, the Limit Definition, evaluating limits, and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, to name a few.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure to stay ahead of the online homework. If you wait too long to do it, the deadline sneaks up on you. I would recommend studying with other students for all of the exams. I did so on my final for this course, and did much better than when I studied alone for the other exams in the same course. The textbook is not necessarily needed; it is, however, a smart buy, because it has a lot of examples similar to the online homework. Good luck!
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This course is a requirement for many science and engineering majors, it is dreaded among almost everyone, including myself. However, this course is very important to many majors, and requires hard work and dedication. For anyone taking it, I highly recommend using the Math Learning Center and group review sessions, provided by the department.
Course highlights:
I have learned a large amount of material dealing with graphs and understanding data sets, curves, and equations. This class also teaches you how to have efficient study habits, without good study habits you will not succeed.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
I recommend using the resources the math department provides for students. Use the MLC and review Sessions! They will save your life!
