    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking this course with Dr. Ballou because she is a very thorough professor and is always willing to answer student questions and help with any problems you have!

    Course highlights:

    From this course, I learned the basics of calculus: limits, derivatives, and the applications of both.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Since Calc I is required for all students, you need to make sure that you have the best professor. Dr. Ballou is the best because she is a fabulous professor, and she currently oversees all of the Calc classes, which gives you an advantage on knowing the material for the final exam.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor really went above and beyond to allow any students with questions the help necessary to understand the content.

    Course highlights:

    I learned exactly what amount of studying would be necessary to succeed further along in my courses. I had already taken this course before in high school however, so there was not much new content for myself

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely put in as much time in the class as you need to, this class is the basis for all future classes in the engineering field, and if you haven't got a concept down from this Calc 1 you should take as much time as you need to get it down, because it will show up again later, and will most likely be even harder later rather than sooner

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a difficult course. It is the start of a completely different style of math than what a student has been using until this point. However, having a professor that wants her students to succeed and thoroughly understand the material has really made me appreciate the struggle later on.

    Course highlights:

    Learning how derivatives and integrals work instead of simply memorizing the form of certain functions helped learn in many later courses where the concept of calculus was used in analysis.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Form a study group. Everyone learns different things at different paces. What you know may help someone else or vice versa. Take notes, use the OSL, and absolutely go to the professor's office hours.
