This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would extremely recommend taking this course from Dr. Jones because he truly makes the effort to thoroughly explain difficult concepts for all students to understand. His willingness to answer questions and give resources for students to study for tests is also a huge plus, even though daily graded homework was a struggle.
Course highlights:
The highlights of this course was building a strong understanding of calculus and making friends who have a similar goal to you. One thing I did learn by taking this course was the advantage of befriending the TA's. They really understand the topic and they are extremely helpful when it comes to homework or if you are trying to understand a concept.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Don't be afraid to ask questions! Everyone is on the same boat as you, and once you get out of integration and into summation notation, go to the TA labs as often as possible. They really help a lot and they can also be the difference between and A and a B grade.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Dr. Jones is AMAZING! He does research in math education, so his life goal is to figure out the best way to teach math. He is engaging and fun, and is really good at explaining even the most difficult of concepts.
Course highlights:
I loved that Dr. Jones taught in a way that encouraged understanding rather than memorization. It made the tests so much easier and the math far more applicable.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
There is quite a bit of homework, but it is all assigned for a purpose. If you do the homework, you will understand the material and will be overprepared for the tests.

Course Overview:
Todd Fisher is a great professor who can adapt his teaching style to cater to the simplest of minds. He truly takes the time to answer questions and help students achieve success in not only class work, but also future long term goals.
Course highlights:
I learned calculus. Truly learning about Taylor series and how people were able to calculate sines cosines and tangents before calculators was amazing. Also learning how to take complex problems and take it one step at a time helps in all areas of life.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Keep up on class work, but more important then that is to review the sections you've had earlier and to try practice problems on past material so that you don't forget it.
