Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
The tests were easy, but the professor didn't give many example problems.
Course highlights:
The test questions were pulled from the study guides.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Do the study guides and homework.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Extremely necessary for a math-heavy field.
Course highlights:
The course was an expansion on calculus II. Maple was useful but extremely difficult.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Professor was effective on teaching material and was very easy to contact after class with questions. Office hours was the best help.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Calculus III is a course that allows you to understand calculus in a more realistic and spacial manner. This skill is important to have in the real world, for example when you need to find the volume or surface area of a strangely shaped three dimensional object. Mr. Kheyfets makes this course very enjoyable. He is incredibly intelligent, is always ready to help his students, he answers students' questions thoroughly, and he has a very good sense of humor! Calculus III with Mr. Kheyfets will always be one of my favorite college classes.
Course highlights:
There are many highlights to this course (including the professor and his sense of humor) but the biggest highlight of Calculus III was the addition of the "z" variable. It allows you to integrate in 3 dimensions and calculate the volume of three dimensional objects that you normally wouldn't be able to because of their odd orientations. This is a very good real world skill, especially for somebody going into construction engineering or model design.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Study hard for the tests. There are only 3 tests and a final in this course. Besides the tests, there are not many other grades so make sure you are prepared for test day! Also, Khan Academy was a great pre-test review/study resource.
