This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Chris Butler is a great teacher and this course is necessary for engineers.
Course highlights:
learning taylor polynomials. Also, working in a lecture hall and collaborating with other students during the class.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
You must re-write your notes after each class and attend the SI sessions.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Chris is an excellent teacher. He knows his stuff, is really good at teaching math in general, and he is absolutely hilarious.
Course highlights:
We learned rules of integration, shortcuts with integrals, integration by parts, trig substitution, vectors, and conic sections. For anyone who is looking to take this course, it's essentially everything you need to know math-wise for any 200-level or lower STEM course.
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
Definitely do the MPODs every day. There's a reason they are called the math problems of the day. All the test questions are just rehashes of MPODs.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course, first of all because if you're taking it, it's probably required for your major. Chris Butler is a fantastic professor and makes the class fun. You do not have any required homework, but that is really a blessing and a curse.
Course highlights:
Chris Butler as the professor is definitely a highlight. He is fantastic. You will learn everything from integration to basic vector calculus.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
This class was challenging and required a lot of studying, but I felt like I learned a lot and was prepared for Calc three the next semester. You have quizzes every week and optional homework after every class, which I highly recommend doing. Tests are harder than the quizzes.
