    Advice for students:

    Don't be scared to go to tutoring. Start on the homework ahead of time because the assignments do take a while to complete

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Math has never been a class that I excelled in, however, I always made good grades in all the math classes I took. However, this math class was the hardest class I've ever taken. The class built on derivatives. There were several forms of derivatives we had to learn. However, as the class progressed, my teacher began to teach faster and faster. This caused me to fall behind. I struggled with integration because there were so many steps to keep up with. The quizzes counted for a significant portion of our average. We had in class quizzes and online quizzes. Both were very difficult. He taught his own way and not by the book. However, the professor did listen to our concerns and gave us extra credit and easier quizzes. He even let us use notes on the test. Luckily the class only covered five chapters of elementary calculus.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the class was mostly derivatives. I learned how to work mathematical concepts I've never been able to work before, such as the quotient rule and property of logarithms. I also learned an important life lesson. Before I began college, life was a breeze. I only had to focus on my grades. However, I began working and started my freshman year at the same time. It was very stressful. I could not quit because I need money to pay for school. I worked 5 to 6 hours during the week. I'd go home really tired however, I still managed to finish my work. Taking this class taught me that toward the beginning of a new experience, things will be rough. You'll fall flat on your face. You'll trip. Something will fall on you. But as you go through your tough times, things will ease up and get better. I made it out of the class with a B+. I started the class with a D, which is considered a failing grade because it is a requirement for my major. Anything is possible, as long as you focus on your goals. Tough times will come, but they will not last.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    For anyone who takes this class in the future, please read rate my professor. Those ratings really help because you get an understanding of what the teacher is like. Study, study, study. Studying is a very important aspect of this class. You will have a hard time passing if you do not study. If you do not work or don't have any obligations after class, talk to a student who takes the class with you and discuss what you learned. You two could learn something you missed. If you work, like I do, get a classmate's number and do not hesitate to contact the professor if you have a question. Also, tell your boss whenever you have concerns with your class, so you two can schedule a day off to catch up with school work or meet with your professor. Lastly, be calm and have fun. Throughout life and college, you will experience a lot of rollercoaster moments. Please remember that it's normal. Things in life happen, but it will be okay. Keep friends and family close by, so you can have a support system. A lot of college campuses have counseling centers and relaxation zones. Go there to relieve stress from school work. Also, have fun and go to events on campus. This allows you to take your mind off of your class. Dwelling on it only makes your feelings toward this class worse and it may causes your performance in this class to worsen. I'd like to say good luck to every student who has to take this course. It is tough but you will get through it!
