This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This class provides necessary knowledge for anything in engineering, and plenty of other majors! It will be tough, but you’ll definitely learn from it! As long as you’re willing to put in some hard work you should do just fine
Course highlights:
This course covers areas of calculus mostly related to integration in one form or another. When you start out you’ll learn how to integrate more complicated formulas than you could in calc one. Then you’ll learn about series and sequences along with convergence and divergence. After that you’ll move on to graphing in polar coordinates, and then start working in 3 dimensions with vectors
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Get help often - I almost always did my homework in the math tutoring center so that help was available if I needed it. It saves a lot of headaches, and sometimes he tutor has a way of explaining in that makes so much more sense than the way your teacher did
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This class is one of the most difficult math classes, and the professor does give a lot of homework. However, it has helped me understand the difference between a DO date and a DUE date for homework. It also greatly improved my love for mathematics and learning.
Course highlights:
What I was most impressed about Calculus II was how creative mathematics was. Most people believe that mathematics involves little creativity, but taking this course helped me realize how artistic numbers can be. I learned of many new ideas such as adding an infinite amount of numbers to receive a finite number and how to use complex numbers such as the square root of -1 in a way to help in trigonometry and engineering.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Work in groups of two to four on homework. If you work on it yourself, it is nearly impossible until about halfway through the course (you become used to thinking hard). Also, review and work on homework problems as soon as you leave class. It helps retain a lot of information and is necessary for the class. Finally, be excited about this math course. It helps a lot.

Course Overview:
This professor taught in a way I understood. He taught in a very professional manner and his TA's were always available to help.
Course highlights:
I learned how to use calculus in new and amazing ways and how to program a calculator to compute trigonometric functions.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Stay ahead of your homework. Too many times I was trying to do my homework the day before it was due, and this usually led to me finishing at 2 or 3 in the morning.
