This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I took this course during my first semester of college. I took a year off after high school graduation, so I was nervous about taking a calculus course after not studying any math for over a year. However, my professor was very helpful and really seemed to care about the success of each of his students.
Course highlights:
Each day would start as an average math course. There would be a small "quiz" each day that consisted of a few questions from the previous lecture's subject, which he would then walk through. We would then take notes for about half the class. But then for the last fifteen minutes he would go through multiple examples of problems with detailed explanations on how to do different types of problems. He would also make sure to open up office hours outside of class for students to recieve extra tutaoring. On top of normal homework and tests, we had a final project which had students apply all of the topics covered in the course in a practical real world scenario.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
This is a typical math course, so depending on how well you understand math concepts will determine the amount of time and effort needed to be put in. However, even if math does come easy to you, there is still a lot of work involved, and you should expect to put a couple hours of work in per night. Overall, just stay on top of work and studying. If you don't understand a topic, please go to the tutoring center. It's free, and it really helps!
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This teacher had a very difficult schedule to follow, and he was always changing things last minute.
Course highlights:
I really liked learning the new math concepts and starting with derivatives.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure that you are always caught up with the assignments. Even if they seem like they are small and don't really matter, at the end of the semester, you want ever single point that you can get.
