This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Personally I would not recommend this course because it was not an area of my strong suit. It was a very challenging math course that I was always stressing about. If you have to take it for your desired field of study then my guess is that you would enjoy it and it will be okay. For me, it was not required and it was a much higher math level course than required for my field of study.
Course highlights:
From this course we learned intro level calculus. We learned about derivatives, antiderivatives, graphing parabolic functions, solving complex algebraic equations and many more things. I learned a lot, I also memorized a lot of different equations that were needed to plug into larger equations. You must be willing to put in the time and effort to succeed in this course.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
If you need to take this course for your major, then of course take it, if you do not, then do not take it unless you are talented in math and enjoy math thoroughly. It is a very challenging course. I was lucky to have a great teacher who gave us a lot of help throughout the year since I took it as a CCP class at my high school. I cannot imagine taking it at a college with a professor I was not familiar with.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Professor Franke is great at explaining the concepts and steps of calculus. She expects a lot from her students but only because she wants them to learn and succeed. She is always willing to help and go over concepts during office hours.
Course highlights:
This course covered everything from derivatives to anti derivatives and everything in between. It was a great as it used real life examples of what these processes could be used for.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Set aside time to actually do the homework she assigns to you. Its a lot of hard work but practicing really does help you learn and do well on the quizzes and exams.
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because a lot of students usually have to take this class but if you take it with Logan, then it will be a breeze. Calculus 1 is supposed to be challenging but Logan makes it pretty simple.
Course highlights:
I learned new things about how to work with functions and I learned a bunch of new shortcuts on how to get to the correct answer. Overall, the highlight of the course was the teacher. He was a graduate student, so he understood the struggle of having other classes to worry about so he would extend the deadlines for assignments if we all had something big going on in other classes. He also gave us extra papers to do for homework, it sucked at the time, but in hindsight, it was a great idea. He got us more prepared for the tests than other teachers might have.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
As long as you show up, pay attention and try to do the homework, this class will be so easy. Most students do not even show up, so they fail the course. If you at least show up and do not pay attention, you are ahead of the game.
