This class was tough.
Course Overview:
It is required for engineering and geology students so you can't escape it either way. It is a very challenging course but definitely not as bad as Math 251. It was common to feel prepared for the exams and then be surprised once exam grades were received. Aplus tutoring saved me, highly recommended!
Course highlights:
I learned a lot of theories that sadly I will not be using in my geologic career. For engineers, it is very useful because these theories can be applied to physics problems.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Aplus tutoring is the best way to go in order to succeed in this course. I also found it helpful to redo all of my homeworks even though it was very time consuming. The key to doing well in this class is practice. The more problems you have worked through using the techniques learned in Aplus tutoring, the more confident you will feel for the exams which will take you a long way.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Very interesting course, differential equations are found everywhere in STEM related fields, and it is important to understand and know how to solve them.
Course highlights:
The basics of differential equations, first order and higher order, mostly focusing on techniques for solving them, such as integrating factors, variation of parameters, laplace transforms and breaking down higher-order equations into systems of first-order ordinary differential equations.
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
If you're not math-inclined, do lots of practice problems.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Needed for engineers. Decent class
Course highlights:
