    | Would not recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this course because he doesn't teach; he believes you already know the material. His accent is hard to understand as well.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course would be that he allowed groups to take quizzes.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you take this course with Mr. Wong, you should have already taken calculus in high school. As for studying, memorize everything.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend Calculus I with Professor Villa because, by the end of the semester, not only do you learn the mathematical concepts of the course but you also understand their importance and how they work the way they do.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the in class lectures and homework. The homework was to be done at home and during class the Professor would clear up any misunderstandings and try to ensure that students understood all concepts.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Calculus isn't easy, but the level of difficulty of Calculus depends entirely on how much work a student puts into learning the material. My advice would be to break up the homework evenly everyday until the class day where the teacher goes over it. This will make sure that students see the material everyday which will help students with understanding the material and help students remember the material when the teacher goes over it. Don't slack on homework and show up to EVERY class because all in-class lectures are essential to passing. Take notes!

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Villa is a very patient teacher, and really takes time when lecturing. If math is your weakest subject, I highly recommend him as a Calculus teaching, given that Calculus is rather difficult.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Villa taught me to never give up on a problem simply by the way it looks. There is always a solution, and it may take a little time to figure it out, but that is fine.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't put off studying. Even if its for a couple minutes a day it is worth your time.
