Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Highly recommended; notes are very organized, exams questions are similar to the practice tests, extremely fair grader.
Course highlights:
Dr. Kevin Kreider was actually humorous at times teaching Calc 1. He was a pretty easy going instructor for an 8-week summer Calculus class and was available when you needed help. The thing I enjoyed most was that he was straight forward and didn't try to "trick" you on an exam; he gave you practice exams which were like the real ones and told you exactly what to expect on the exams, you just had to do the homework and understand the principles. I'm horrible at math and I got a B+ in the class, if that tells you anything.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Do the homework, ask questions if you don't understand the concepts, and take the practice exams (and the homework questions) seriously as they'll be very similar in nature to what you'd see on the real exam. There's a reason why he has won awards at the college for teaching mathematics (i.e. 2016. Math Department Professor of the Year as well as Rate My Professor awards).
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
