This class was tough.
Course Overview:
It was the one of the best math course I've ever taken. It broaden my understanding of mathematics.
Course highlights:
Applications and techniques of integration; polar equations; parametric equations; sequences and series, power series. I learned what integral was and what integration does. We applied integration on thing we see and happen every day. We learned to find the area of oblique shaped objects, force required to flow water from top of tank, probability of function, behavior of function on interval, and product of power series among many others.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Go to lecture!! Although lecture attendance doesn't really affect your grade, it is vital if you want to do well on this course. Take advantage of professor's office hours, TA's office hours, and school's course tutors!
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I'd recommend it because, even if it isn't required for your major, it teaches strategies to approach problems that you can face in your everyday life.
Course highlights:
Calculus 2 mostly focuses on integration techniques and applications. this teaches you intelligent ways to solve problems that were introduced during earlier courses.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Actually study, as in doing the recommended homework so you have a firm grasp on what is going on in class. this is more difficult than calc 1 so treat it like that.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I recommend taking this course with professor Striker because, in my opinion, she is the best. So many people I know who took this course with another professor told me that they did not do well. The course itself is not the easiest, but when you have the right teacher, it is really fun. If you want to learn cool math that not a lot of people know about, this is the course for you.
Course highlights:
I learned so many things in this course. It is continuous of calculus 1, so derivatives and integrals are the main things. We also did a lot of limits, series, and sequences. For the most part, you learn the different techniques of finding the integral. At the end of the class, you learn about polar coordinates, which are also very fun, and you will get into calculus 3 a little.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
If you still have the notes from calculus 1, keep them for sure. Having the unit circle will also come in handy. If you go to class and take good notes, you will not have to study for the exams as much. Make sure to do the homework assignments on time, and don't give up.
