This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Kevin Burns somehow manages to make calculus interesting and makes his lectures simple enough for everyone to understand. I personally struggle with math and his course has helped me a lot.
Course highlights:
Great lectures helped me do better in the course.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Start your homework as soon as you can so that you can be prepared with any questions you have and that way you're actually learning the material. Don't procrastinate!
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
If you are prepared to dedicate time and effort to this course, you can succeed in Calculus I.
Course highlights:
I learned new math skills that can later, be applied to real life scenarios.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
If you are not the best at math, you can still succeed in Calculus, just understand that this course is rigorous and will require much of your time and effort. Make sure to take good notes and do not fall behind on assignments, as if is difficult to catch up and understand.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would definitely recommend Calc 1 for all students majoring in physical sciences, engineering, and of course the mathematics majors. If students like a challenge, they should take Professor Tim Burkopec. He is a challenging instructor and expects 100% effort out of all his students. He has a 60% drop out rate... so that should tell you how challenging his course is.
Course highlights:
Calculus is a whole other world! I went in expecting to understand everything right away but that was not the case. Calculus is a challenging program but it is doable. I learned about derivatives, integrals, anti-derivatives, basic concepts and harder concepts working hand in hand, etc.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
STUDY! STUDY! STUDY! I don't mean study the night before the exam but everyday you need to take problems from the book and just practice! Practice for a couple hours everyday and use the resources that your school offers you! You will struggle unless you are a genius in math. But it is a fun and challenging course. After all, the navy requires it for all of its future officers.
