Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because it is a high level math course that helps students transition from high school math classes and/or lower level math classes into a high level college course. It teaches students that even though a course is hard it is not impossible to succeed. Students have the opportunity to teach themselves how to be successful by putting in the work outside of class. The class also has the benefits of leading to even higher math courses such as MATH 1572, calculus II.
Course highlights:
The course taught me much more than just the stepping stones of calculus. Aside from learning about limits, derivatives, related rates, optimization, and integration I also learned the ins and outs of how to be successful in college. To be able to get the grades that I wanted I had to at least double the amount of time I spent in class outside of class. This included time studying by myself and in groups, going to the MAC (Mathematics Assistance Center), and doing all of my homework and then some. To be successful in college all of that responsibility falls on the student, and he/she has to put in the work to do so.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
The advice I would give is to not study alone. Find some people in your class and form a study group with them. Then they can answer your questions if you have any or you can get extra practice by helping them with something that you already feel comfortable with. I would also give the advice to do the assigned homework. Not all teachers actually take the homework for a grade; they just give it to you for your own benefit, and it does benefit.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This course is so difficult. Remember to learn your trig functions in trig; you will regret not learning them if you don't. I'm taking it as a high schooler and it's not fun. Pay attention when you're learning derivatives because they are the basis for everything in calc.
Course highlights:
I learned that getting a B is not the end of the world. RIP my grade. Seriously though, I learned how to do derivatives and how to have a it more confidence in my self with math in general.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Learn derivatives, do your homework, study the lesson every night, remember your trig functions and then you should do okay. Reading the textbook, although complicated, helps.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because it's hard but not to hard of a math course to gain more credits. As long as you study the material it's not hard at all.
Course highlights:
I gained a good amount of knowledge on how to solves the problems. I learned about how to change problems into their derivatives and then back. Also learned about slopes
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
You need to study for this course, this is not one that you can just go through unless you have already taken it at the high school level. Looking up YouTube videos on problem in your spare time would help
