    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Griggs is an amazing professor who leads you to success in calculus. I thought he did an amazing job and it was easy to get the A+ if you were a good student in his class.

    Course highlights:

    You learn derivatives, integrals and REAL LIFE APPLICATIONS-which is few and far between in math classes these days.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just do you homework, and takes notes in class and you will succeed.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course with Griggs because he is great at explaining the concepts learned in the course. It is also extremely helpful for Business majors because of optimization problems which apply directly to business majors, and which we will definitely use within the work force. The max/min word problems, integrals, and derivatives are also used within the business world. This course is much better than 141, because it only gives you the information you need directly for your degree, and doesn't waste time teaching you concepts you won't actually use.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was that it was pretty easy to learn the material if you have Griggs. I didn't really do much for this course at all except pay attention in class, I did my webassigns, and then studied the day before my tests, and finished with a B in the class. If you are not mathematically inclined like me then you may need to study the material throughout the semester and not directly before the tests. However, if you did really well in pre-calculus 1 and 2, then you should be good for this course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to take all of the example problems down in class, study the practice tests on webassign (most of the time they mirror the test you will be given in class), and complete the webassigns they're good test prep and an easy way to boost your grade.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was my first college level mathematics course. I took this class twice a week, and the lectures were always clear and helpful. The homework is online, and some are dropped at the end of the semester. The amount of homework was very reasonable. The class is basically structured as 1/2 derivatives and 1/2 integrals. I came into this class having very basic calculus knowledge, and found it to be straightforward.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of calculus knowledge from this course, as well as how to navigate tutoring and TA services.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep your attendance up! Mr. Griggs will drop a test if you have fewer than 4 absences. Also, don't be afraid to ask for help- the professor, as well as the TA's are knowledgable and friendly. Oftentimes, it only took 10 minutes with a TA to clear up hours of homework confusion. Additionally, do the online practice tests: they aren't graded, but they mirror the test composition and helped me a lot.
