    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for any biology related majors who need calculus to graduate. It gives you more of a focused look into calculus and biology. I know that calculus is not a favorite for most people, me included, but this course gave it application which made it more interesting

    Course highlights:

    As a biology student, calculus is not one of my favorite subjects, however, this class made calculus bearable. You learn more applied calculus than you would in a regular calculus class. For example, real life examples are used such as cell growth, and effects on population. Overall, you learn all of the principles of calc 1 with a twist of biology

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class requires a lot of studying and work on your own time. I would advise students to be prepared to work hard in order to get the results that you are looking for. I would also recommend going to office hours and guided study groups, these really helped me to enforce the information.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    By far the best professor I have had in college so far. Not only does he care about your grades, but be cares about you as a person. He is willing to talk to you about anything. Also, academically he is outstanding and fair.

    Course highlights:

    I previous took the AP exam for Calc and had the score to move past it. I decided against it and I thought it was a great decision. He perfectly sets you up for the next calculus class, and it's also a nice refresher from any high school courses.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start his homework early because when he assigns homework its usually about 4-8 hours of work. Try working with someone else for more brain power. Also, the most important thing, do NOT worry about his quizzes.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a calculus course geared toward those in a biology centered major. I would recommend this course to those enrolled in a biology centered major to enrich your overall understanding of calculus by applying it to real world biology examples.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course included an overall understanding of not only calculus principles, but also why calculus is important in the world of biology. In this course I learned how calculus applies to certain biological principles such as population growth, and even richer, enzymatic rates.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    As always, be prepared to put in the time! You are not going to succeed unless you stay on top of each topic at all times. Calculus is an important principle to understand, therefore take it seriously and it will become more interesting to you.
