Background Knowledge Expected
Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
The material is explained thoroughly with room for questions of any kind, even if it's already been covered. If you don't get something, she will work you through it until you do before moving on to the next section.
Course highlights:
I gained a thorough understanding of limits and the laws and theorems concerning limits. I feel prepared for MATH 1920 (Calculus II) and I feel confident in my knowledge gained in MATH 1910.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Do the homework, even though it's optional. It really helps you gain a full understanding of each lesson.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would very much recommend this course. While Professor Daniels is very strict with his policies, he grades fairly and covers the material well.
Course highlights:
I gained wisdom. I wouldn't say I learned any actual math in this course, just because I had already taken Calculus in high school. What I learned was my advice down below, DO PROBLEMS!! Be familiar with question-solving methods. The methods were my downfall. I would know all the math, but stare at a problem because I wouldn't even know where to begin. Also (sigh) learn those trig functions.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
When covering a chapter, find the hardest problems, and solve them. If you can do them easily, no need to study! Go study another chapter, or for another class. However, if you cannot easily see the method of solving it merely by looking at it, work a few problems out. Being familiar with the material is crucial in this class due to the two-question quizzes. One question wrong and that's a 50!
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would strongly recommend taking this course! Professor Daniels is a very helpful professor, and really knows the material. If you want to learn Calc, he's definitely your guy!
Course highlights:
A highlight of this course, for me, was our last quiz. Our professor had us write a 1000 word essay, reflecting over how we'd grown during the semester. It was a great assignment.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
It's imperative that if you take this course, you should be prepared for setting aside some time every week to work on calculus, preferably with other students. This is something that was a tremendous help getting through the course.
