Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I absolutely loved my Calc 1 course. Calc 1 was my G.P.A. booster for the semester, as I got an A in the course, and it was the one class I never skipped. Calc 1 is definitely a class I recommend because even if you're not a math person it gives you the chance to make friends with other non-math people and together with study groups everyone has the potential to walk out of the course being a math person!
Course highlights:
I Loved Loved Loved my professor and recitation professor. They both took the time to make sure all the students were on the same page and understood the materials. I also made a lot of friends which helped making my transition from high school to college easier.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Study. I took AP Calc AB my senior year and got a 3 on the AP test because I didn't study. I struggled in High School through calc simply because I didn't study, but once I got to college i decided to give studying a shot and it surely paid off. Not only was I apart of the 10-15% of the class who received A's, but i realized that Math is a subject you have to sit down and just do. And once you get into the routine of doing practice problems and forming study groups calc becomes easier and less stressful as a whole.
