Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I personally adore the maths but I know a lot of people do not. It is not an easy class but there are soo many resources available for students having a hard time. Use them! The professor is very good, and answers any and every question thoroughly. The tutoring center was very helpful to me as well.
Course highlights:
Differential equations, integrals, 3-D volume and average value, trigonometric intervals and hyperbolic integrands just to name a few.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Make use of all the resources available to you.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because it is interesting and the first advanced concept math course I have taken thus far.
Course highlights:
I did not do well so I would not say I learned anything other than the areas of rotation as a concept.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
Do problems from the book and study the examples that are more difficult and from the exam reviews.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This was my second time taking calculus 2 and this time not only did I do significantly better but I also passed! Professor Rainsford goes at a pace that is easy to follow along to. She was good about answering my questions and made it clear what she expected from us on workshops and exams. She held office hours almost everyday so that if students couldn't make it because of class on specific days they could go at another time. She was eager to help and overall a better professor than the one I had before.
Course highlights:
In this course you do A LOT of integration so definitely know how to do those. We also learned volumes of revolution and volumes between curves. A very important and challenging is sequences and series. Those are the things that most students struggled with but once you grasp the concept and practice those problems a lot, the exam wasn't too bad. The last we focus on is cartiods, parametric equations, cartesian and polar coordinates, and differential equations. This comes around the end of the class when people start checking out but these things are really important so make sure you pay attention. Also differential equations are important if you are continuing with Calc 3 so make sure you ask equations and understand how to solve them.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
This class is no joke. It is a difficult course but if you put in the time and effort you can definitely pass with a B. Getting an A is tough but still possible. I would suggest practicing problems and doing old exams as practice, but don't just rely on the old exams because material changes from year to year. Also, make sure you know your stuff from calc 1 because that stuff does not go away. Most of those concepts are built upon in this course.
