    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Farmer was excellent at counteracting the speed of the course with extreme clarity and practice for each exam. Although the tests were difficult, she made sure we knew what was coming and to what extent we needed to study. This class demanded effort.

    Course highlights:

    The course was mostly plotting, solving, and finding values in 3 space graphs. I learned a lot and I could also recall most of it even now.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to dedicate time to this course. It has the necessary help to be successful but demands a student that is willing to take the time.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend the course to anyone who likes the challenge of math and can appreciate the experience of solving difficult solutions. The class is very difficult but still very doable.

    Course highlights:

    I have gained a very strong base in the field of Multi-Variable Calculus.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study a lot! Go over all of the notes the teacher gives you, especially the parts you are unsure of. Do as many practice problems as possible, you won't have a good grasp on the subject until you can do problems without having to look at notes.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Wapperom was one of the best math teachers I have had thus far. He does not waste time in class, always finishing the lesson, but allotting time for questions. That being said he does move relatively quickly in class. His knowledge is reliable and he does not expect or demand course work for which he can not fully explain himself. The only downside I objectively observed was that he had a slight accent that sounded like it could come from Eastern Europe.

    Course highlights:

    As an engineering major, it is expected that I be proficient in calculus. Finishing Calculus I & II in high school. I was able to move on to the last level which was Calculus 3 or Multivariable Calculus. The course applies basic integration, differentiation and curve sketching skills subject to calculus I with representations in physical space introduced in Calculus II. However, there are certain applications and functions in the world that cannot be modeled or estimated given only one variable. This course really allowed me to get more from calculus conceptually and functionally.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you struggled at all with basic concepts in calculus I or II, you must go to office hours. There is no written rule about it but, during office hours, Dr. Wapperom is fully devoted to helping you understand the problems he assigns. There were many times that I was only able to complete homework assignments with his guidance. His late work policies are very lenient and he often extends deadlines if he should fall behind in the lesson plan. Practice, practice, practice. That is the key to success in this or any math course.
