This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I Highly recommend the course because engineering and calculus go hand in hand. If you can not get through Calc 1 forget engineering.
Course highlights:
I can not say there were any highlights per say, but our professor was excellent at clarifying the theory which made the work much easier to understand.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Brush up on trigonometry. They do not revisit advanced trig, the professor just starts where trigonometry left off.
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
If you are engineering major, calculus is must. Dr. kohn is the best teacher you will ever find in whole NYIT campus to build the basic and concept of the Calculus.
Course highlights:
Calculus - finding area, and volume, derivatives, antiderivative, graph, trigonometry etc
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Understand the main concept, you don't have to learn much after that.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
If you are deciding that you want to have a STEM college education, you definitely have to take Calculus I. However, it is questionable whether you want to take it with Loughlin. He is very passionate about the subject, and will constantly go on tangents about "Why?" And if you are not into that type of learning you will certainly become lost in the 2 1/2 hour class.
Course highlights:
My knowledge of Calculus was strengthened immensely. Taking college calculus in high school had defiantly helped me in this course. However, Calculus I went a lot more in-depth.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
If you are a lover of mathematics and fond of the subject, then this is the right class for you. However, if you are just taking this class to get the credit, there are defiantly easier professors out there, such as Roitberg.
