This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This math class shows how both integrals and derivatives can used in applicable situations. Using triple integrals to find the volume of a 3D figure is just so COOL!
Course highlights:
From leaving Calc 2 I didn't really understand the point of integrals and how they could be used. By the end of this course, using double and triple integrals became an interesting idea and actually fun to figure out in a challenging way.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
You cannot just rely on your professor to teach you everything. Lectures only last so long and they don't have the time to expose to every possible situation. Developing the skill of being able to interpret your textbook would be my overall advice. College has great teachers but you also have to be able to teach yourself at times.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
By learning about the calculus at an even higher level than Calc 1 or 2, a greater expansion of knowledge is available. Also, Karen Champine explains things very well, and will not allow you to slack on effort.
Course highlights:
Learning the applications of Calculus in the 3D realm of things gives a new meaning to math
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
Study math everyday, and not only this, but do problems from the book everyday with speed in mind.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because it is necessary for an engineering major and it is so much better than Calculus II. Calculus III is more engaging and is easier to understand.
Course highlights:
I learned lots of new concepts; however, I had to do a lot of self-teaching.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
You should definitely do a lot of studying. I did not and it showed in my exams. I really should have dedicated much more time to this class.
