This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Although this is a difficult class that moves at a very fast pace, I would recommend it! It is important to study your notes every day after class, do all of the homework, and go to office hours to clarify the concepts that are difficult.
Course highlights:
Most of the course is about limits and derivatives. We also learned about the basic principles of integration.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure you go to office hours. Professor Barry is very helpful!
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Mrs. Leech is a great professor. She challenges her students, but she also teaches them how to overcome these challenges. She is very willing to help and will do all she can to ensure her students learn. Her office hours are very helpful and give students a great opportunity to get one-on-one help.
Course highlights:
I learned how to calculate a minimum or maximum cost, minimum or maximum area, minimum or maximum volume, and minimum or maximum perimeter. I learned how to find rates of change, find derivatives, integrate equations, graph equations, and use many theorems. I learned how to do all of these things without a calculator.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
The book problems are not required, but you should do them anyways. The types of problems that are in the book are the types of problems that will be on the tests and quizzes. Do not wait til the last minute to complete the homework. Allow yourself around three hours a night to complete the homework for this course. Use office hours very frequently. They are the most helpful tool you have as a college student.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This is a great course if you are interested in mathematics.
Course highlights:
I have an understanding of basic calculus and how to apply it.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Take advantage of office hours and tutors. The exams are a great indicator of how you are doing in the course. If you are struggling with those, then you need to be spending more time studying.
