This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Although this course is the most difficult undergraduate calculus course, professor Beth Etters teaches this course in a way that allows students to easily pick up difficult material. She has a bubbly personality and is always willing to help those who need it. She genuinely cares for all her students and is very approachable.
Course highlights:
The highlights of this course for me were the methods of integration. I learned multiple methods, such as integration by parts, u-substitution, and tables.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure your foundations in algebra, trigonometry, geometry, and calculus are strong. You cannot pass this class without having a good understanding of the previously mentioned topics.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course. Ms. Taylor is a good professor, and is great at explaining each concept. But bare in mind, this course is demanding. There is a lot of material covered in a short time frame.
Course highlights:
How to find anti derivatives, finding approximations using the mid-point, trapezoid and simpson rule. I'm currently working through the disk/washer method and shell method to find the area and volume between functions.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
Do not get behind. There is such much material covered, you got to stay on your game. I would also suggest to plan on seeking help outside the classroom, regularly. This class even helped me find another avenue of studying. Which is working problems on a white/chalk board. I would highly recommend that becoming a study staple for incoming students.

You have to study for this class very hard. The tests are a lot easier than the rest of the class.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours

Take notes, always go to class, pay attention, and find a study buddy.
