This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This course is hard, but Porus is a good teacher and I enjoy some of the stories he tells, and he just doesn't teach to teach. He teaches so you understand.
Course highlights:
Porus, I also learned how to visualize problems better, and full understand problems.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Do a lot of problems, ask questions and go to Porus office hours.

Course Overview:
Calc II is one of the most vital classes an Engineering student can take. It is the foundation to all you will learn in the future, especially when it comes to physics. It is considered one of the hardest courses a person can take in college, yet with the right professor such as mine, you can survive through it.
Course highlights:
Integration and series. Understanding Integrals is the most important information you can get out of this class for all future classes. It is like the foundation of all high level engineering math.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
Study a lot. The best way to study is to just do practice problems. As dull as it sounds, you want this stuff to be like muscle memory.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Though this class is infamous for being difficult, taking it with Professor Zaleski teaches you how to properly prepare for any exam, including those outside of math. Professor Zaleski takes a topic, like integral calculus, and turns it into a series of solvable situations.
Course highlights:
Learning that anything can be defined by calculus, and proofs for methods that we've been using all our lives were both very cool.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
Don't be afraid to use the math tutoring center, and if you do decide to go, go from the beginning of the semester as you're learning the information because it gets packed as exams approach. And always try to do at least several practice problems from the textbook aside from assigned homework before you get to class.
