Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Math is very straight forward- you need a formula, know how to solve it, and plug in the numbers- and calculus is no different. I enjoy math, and I really enjoyed this class. I liked going deeper into some of the stuff I learned in Calculus I and then building on that knowledge and learning new things. It helped me with trig as well as giving a better understanding of integration, differentiation, and more.
Course highlights:
I gained a better understanding of differentiation and intervention. I have never been very good with trig, but this class helped- we used a lot of trig functions. There are a good number of "rules" to learn- these were hardest for me to keep straight- so make sure to study these, you will have to know which is which and how to use them.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
If you aren't understanding, talk to the professor or go to tutoring! Once you understand how everything works (which formula to use and how to work it out/solve it), it comes very easily. Absolutely do the homework- this is very important! It helps with your understanding, especially before the exams. And of course, know the unit circle and basic integration functions- you will, of course, be using trig!
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
It was easy and it did the job in teaching me what I need to know about Calculus II.
Course highlights:
Integration was a big part of the course. Also limits to infinity were learned, which helps me understand the nature of infinity a little more.
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
If you are a math person, this will be an easy course. If you are not a math person, you will have problems.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
He is a good professor, gives lots of extra credit but you better be able to teach yourself from time to time.
Course highlights:
The extra credit was great. Calc 2 can be tough so it is nice to know you have a safety net if things go south.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Have your algebra down quite well, and study your trig functions... you will use them
