This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I enjoyed taking this class with Professor Nedel. He was thorough when it came to giving us lots of examples of "weird" behavior (like what to do when you ran into trigonometry, infinity, or logarithms) with every concept. He moved briskly but always answered questions and honestly gave us everything we needed to succeed, including thorough study guides and the concepts that were going to be on every exam so we could practice the right material. I loved it.
Course highlights:
We learned a lot about differentiating, finding limits, rate of change problems.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Be ready to study and really do the practice problems. If you do the practice problems, you can make a really good grade.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend the class for someone who understands the basics of precalculus because the professor moves quickly throughout the course.
Course highlights:
Differentiation and Integration are the main focus in this course. He does an amazing job teaching the students how to use these tool in calculus but he does not show the students when to use it.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Pay attention and write down notes in class, do all the assigned homework and lastly revise your quizzes/tests before turning it in because he takes points off for everything.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
He explains the concepts so well and tries his best so that you can solve the problems on your own. He makes himself available before and after lecture to assist anyone who seeks his help. Would definitely recommend.
Course highlights:
Very good professor, fair & realistic. His goal is for students to succeed & understand the material. Material is not easy but he is very willing to spend time on questions during class. Extra help is available before & after class. He'll put in extra time for any student who asks. Don't fall behind, do the homework & ask questions! Super nice and funny guy.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Fair in grading and realistic in what he expects from his students. Spends time to go over questions on homework/quizzes/tests. Attendance not mandatory, but highly recommended. He starts with the basics of new concepts and builds from there, lots of examples and in-class discussion.
