Great Intro to the Subject
Many Small Assignments
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.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course to most students. I had never taken a calculus or pre-calc or even full trigonometry course when I was in high school, so of course I was nervous stepping into the class for the first time. I will not lie to you, I did not do spectacularly, but Professor Lakins' dedication to her students and her study was incredible.
Course highlights:
The highlights of the course were definitely the little quizzes along the way. If you studied what you learned in class, did the homework, and spoke to others on the subjects at hand, you were likely to receive a decent grade. These are what allowed me to pass the class. Obviously, you learn calculus. We worked from basic trig up to some pretty tricky integrals. If you don't care for the good ole' infinite sign, this class my not be for you.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Please, please, please take advantage of office hours. I learned so much outside of class that helped my float my grade in those one-on-one sessions with Professor Lakins. It also shows that you're dedicated, even if you aren't the best at math. I had to get a private tutor, but I would suggest for the common student to work through problems on a white board with classmates.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
If you are interested in Chemistry, this is a great course. If you are unsure, this course will help you decide if it is the right path for you. I would recommend going to office hours if you do not understand something. Also, if there are older students helping out in the lab, be sure to ask them questions.
Course highlights:
I learned that Chemistry was not the path for me. I struggled at first, but finally got the hang of the class. I learned how to ask for help and study with classmates.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Definitely go to office hours if you need to. I also recommend studying with a group so that you can help each other.
