    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend the course if you're in a bind like I was to get credit for Math 150 for Texas A&M before the fall semester begins. It has definitely helped me keep my math skills I check over the summer.

    Course highlights:

    The course reminded me of what equations and skills I would be using in my calculus class in college. Most of the material I was taught in this course I already knew in high school. But it was good to understand what I was expected to know in Calculus.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep in mind that I took this course during the summer. The duration was only 18 days. So, if your not one who studies at least 2 hours a day, then I would not encourage you to take this course.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Koch was a great instructor. He made sure that you knew your calculus. He gave practical homework that was challenging but was worth the time because the tests that were given were also challenging but fair. To this day I still use my calculus 2 knowledge in order to progress further in my college career.

    Course highlights:

    The entire class was very interesting and fun, yet challenging. Mr. Koch was a wonderful explainer and made sure everyone was on the same page before moving on. We learned all about integral calculus, finding areas of 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional shapes and infinite series. The foundation learned in this class becomes an imperative asset needed to progress further in engineering and other STEM related courses.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the homework, especially the very tough ones towards the end because those are most likely the ones that are going to be on the test. Always double check your work after taking an exam. Get tutoring from the math lab and Mr. Koch because he is a tremendous explainer

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you have a love for math, or even if you don't professor Guevara teaches Calculus in a manner that makes you want to learn more.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights of this course were learning about the basic fundamentals of higher level maths such as taking derivatives and integrating. I learned that even basic level maths will be used continually through out my math career.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I can say from experience that practicing your math over and over is the only way to do well in this class. A tip I could suggest is practicing the homework problems your professor provides, and more whether the extra problems are provided by asking your professor or just different questions out of the textbook.
