Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
The first day I went to his class, I was waiting to come back the next day. Why? He was absolutely amazing at explaining the concepts. Rather than give out formulae to memorize, he had helped understand why the formula was in existence and helped solve the problem step-by-step. I, personally, understood concepts, I had been murky about before, way better.
Course highlights:
Calculus may seem scary to some students, I did too. But as I went through the course, I felt more and more confident and began to understand why we use a certain formula. If you have a great interest in way everything works, this is a great course, helping you understand basic functions in our life. One of the many things our professor had taught was don't try and look for different ways but learn to accept calculus- which made my life easier. I cannot tell you how many "oh! that's what this was" moments I had throughout this course.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Practice! Practice! Practice! Always put your pencil down on the paper and write what the problem is about. Put down the first step and trust me, the next one will follow. Just as any sport or art, practice is very important. Practice different problems, because you are one of the few who can say oh! I can solve this using calculus and not be intimidated by the problem itself.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I love math and Professor Sike helped me love it even more. He wants you to succeed and is always enthusiastic to help with any question you have. He is funny, happy, and loves what he teaches. The homework he provides is lengthy and in abundance but it is doable and aids tremendously on the exams. You will succeed in this class, you just need to put a little work into it.
Course highlights:
Calculus can be applied to various aspects of life and is extremely useful. I am not only confident in integrating and differentiating but I can use my newfound knowledge and apply it to how best buildings should be developed, how to maximize work by using the least amount of force, calculating areas of any shape possible, and so many other concepts. There is so much that you can do with Calculus.

Advice for students:
Do your homework!!! Do your work!!! Take notes and do not be afraid to ask questions.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
The questions Dr. Gutzler gave always focused on the deeper knowledge and the base concepts we studied earlier. The questions often made me think critically and understand the broad concepts related to them before answering. It was a very interactive class and so, I found myself confident enough to share my ideas more clearly and confidently.
Course highlights:
I learned many different and important lessons from this specific class including the fact that logical thinking is always required before answering any question to answer it more rationally and more important, correctly. I came to learn many different techniques to solve the same kind of questions including the different tricks that makes any difficult question easier and less complicated.
Hours per week:

Advice for students:
You need to thoroughly revise the chapter taught on the same day and you also need to practice as many different questions as you can using the different techniques taught by him. It is required that you complete all the homework and attend the class everyday.
