    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Although this course was taught in an unorthodox way, this was the best class that I have ever taken at RU. No one ever hears talk of difficult Math classes taught by PowerPoint Presentation; however, I believe this is the best approach to this subject matter. The instructor gave us EVERYTHING we needed to succeed in a timely manner! Although Calculus I is listed as one of the top 5 toughest courses at RU, I found it extremely less challenging due to the way it was presented. Also, this course taught me how to study. I was completely lost beforehand. Now, I feel prepared and ready to conquer any course that is present before me.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite aspect of this course was studying. All that I had to do was redo the problems given during lecture, and do a few practice test before an exam. I learned how to study. Actually going back to notes that I previous had taken allowed me to reinforce the material. I now know what studying smart means.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do EXACTLY what the professor tells you to, and you WILL get and A.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is an extremely challenging course. Incoming freshmen are the most common demographic in this class, and can be caught off guard by the level of difficulty. The professor does a tremendous job of instilling a strong work ethic among every student early on to prepare them for the rigor of upcoming semesters.

    Course highlights:

    Work ethic. I never approached the subject of calculus with much intensity until this class. Knowing calculus from high school was nowhere near sufficient to excel in this class. You had to make a sincere effort to master the material and reach out to professors and peers.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study hard from day one. Even though you may have a background in calculus from high school, the exams in this class are much tougher. It is important to put a lot of work into knowing the intricacies of the types of problems covered in the class, so that you can avoid falling for traps on the exams.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is an extremely difficult class. Threlfall is a very smart professor but he doesn't tend to spend much time explaining problems and equation to you. I didn't take pre-calc, i just jumped right into calculus 1 and at first i was a little behind, but i caught up pretty fast.

    Course highlights:

    This calculus course is recommended for any student that isn't a math major. I am a marine biology major, so this course was required. It is very fast paced, but the recitation is extremely helpful.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    if you dedicate a massive amount of time into this class, you will succeed.
