This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course for people who are interested in mathematics and want a taste of whether or not going into higher mathematics is the right choice for them. Although still a 3000-level course, it is very difficult and serves as a good, personal benchmark as to whether or not to continue in STEM-related field.
Course highlights:
This class covered multivariable calculus, surfaces in space, series, Taylor and Maclaurian polynomials, double and interated integrals, and vectors to name a few topics. We learned methods for partial differentiation, how to better understand limits and convergence, and applications of multivariable calculus to real world problems faced by economists. The professor was very humorous and succeeded in making things a lot easier to understand by his geometric explanations of more difficult concepts .
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
My advice would be to brush up on trigonometry, methods of solving systems of equations, and limits. Also, study a lot and do the homeworks because unless you have a strong inclination for math, this course is very difficult.
