Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend the course. As someone who usually struggles through math, it seemed pretty straightforward. Notes are important, reviews are given for tests. The book wasn't necessary, but it's a pretty good resource if you need more examples of a problem, or for studying. The homework we had from the book was posted online. The professor was a little shy and quirky at times, but very nice and knowledgeable.
Course highlights:
This course began with limits. It's a concept that runs through half the course and carries into derivatives, and integrals. These are used to solve related rate problems, optimization problems, find the area under a graph, sketching a curve, and finding a tangent equation from a curve. I'm not sure how this relates to other aspects of calculus, or what this does as a whole. Since this is the only required math course I have, I doubt I'll be motivated to find out. But it was interesting nonetheless, and satisfying to see how easy everything is now looking back.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
For this course, it could have been enough to just take notes. If you want a good grade, really go for it and brush up on algebra, do practice questions, and write out a quick cheat-sheet of formulas and theorems and procedures. There are plenty of resources!
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I have neutral feelings towards him because he does teach well and you will understand but he doesn't seem to answer your questions correctly. He doesn't let you use graphing calculators but you can use scientific calculators.
Course highlights:
You will learn about limits, derivatives, continuities and many other things.
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
Pay attention to every single thing he talks about. Ask questions outside the box and for more difficult questions.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because Dr. Rai clearly lays out how the course will be taught, and is receptive to student questions.
Course highlights:
After taking this course you will have a thorough understanding of differential calculus and a good foothold on integral calculus.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Remember to revise formulas, properties, and theorems. The more math problems you practice, the more you learn to apply them to the class!
