Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
Yes, I would highly recommend this course and this professor. There may be a language barrier of sorts at first to some but the professor is great overall and she helps students succeed. Course doesn't require a lot of time to someone who pays attention and is hardworking.
Course highlights:
I had already previously taken Calc I in high school and had a lot of trouble grasping concepts. Taking it in college I started strong and never let my grade slip below an A. I learned a lot and most importantly I can go on to Calc II without worrying that I do not know enough.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
I recommend doing the homework as the quizzes, midterms, and final all come from the homework and just going to class alone will not get you an A unless you already knew Calc I.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would strongly recommend taking Calculus 1 especially with Professor Beatty because calculus itself is the study of change which is essential to real world problems.
Course highlights:
I liked that this served as the transition from algebra based physics to calculus based physics for me. I learned about differentiation which is the most valuable tool for someone who studies algebraic and trigonometric functions.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Practice constantly, differentiation never gets easier and can get pretty messy. It is easy to make little mistakes so practice is key.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend the class because you really do learn a lot from this professor when learning calculus I. Almost everything is group work in class and all the assignments are online, including the notes. She also doesn't move on to next unit until everyone understands the materials.
Course highlights:
I really enjoyed that everything was online and easy to access and work. She was always very friendly and helpful. Even though I had to study and dedicate more time to the subject, I learned a lot about calculus and she prepared us a little for calculus II.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Some tips are that you do need to study by looking over her power points, doing practice problems, and actually doing the homework assignments. To prepare for the exams do the reviews because they resemble the exams.
