Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Great class! He explains pretty well, if you choose to come to lecture, which I would recommend. Otherwise, if you feel confident with the book you can just do the practice problems there, if you can do them you can do his quizzes. Practice is important and it is easy to understand how the problem difficulty scales to tests and quizzes.
Course highlights:
This course covers mostly vector calculus and integrals. You definitely should already know your basic integrations and derivatives, but he is understanding and will go over them again. Where calc 1 or 2 covered basic integral areas under a line, calc 3 would be covering 3d versions of those areas and surface areas under planes and shapes, the the understanding of the prior would help the latter.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Go over the basics from calc 1 and 2, just the functions not the memorized formulas. Keep notes of trig integrals/derivatives with you all the time. Do the homework problems, helps alot.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Professor Zumbrum was a great professor and you should definitely strive to take him! It was definitely a pleasure to have him.
Course highlights:
He explained the course content clearly, and did his best to prepare us for the ridiculously callous departmental math exams.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
Read the book. Use Coursehero and Slader.com for solutions to the problems. Go to office hours a ton - he's very helpful.
