This class was tough.
Course Overview:
The Professor of this course was extremely helpful. He went out of his way to help us understand calculus and not just make it through the tests. There is a special focus on making sure you are ready for Calculus 2.
Course highlights:
It started out with Limits and Functions., then it moved on through derivatives and related rates. However, the last third of the course was almost completely on integrals.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure you are ready for calculus. They give a non-graded math assessment in the first week. If you do not meet the recommended level, I recommend going to a lower math course. Also, the course is very intensive. If you fall behind on the homework, you will not catch up. So if you decide to do this course, you must be committed.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I enjoy this course because the instructor really cares about the learning of his students. He is not only a great guy, but also a friend. He knows each of us by name and he strives to make us succeed.
Course highlights:
Although learning the many applications of derivatives is hard, it is by far the most exciting things I have ever studied. The professor makes it fun by keeping us engaged and going into fine detail in the areas that people easily slip up.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
Do not be overwhelmed by the amount of class time and homework for this course. It is best to just take everything one bite at a time. If things start to get hard, the professor is always ready to help, and there is a very useful tutoring building so you can work through the hardest problems.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would highly recommend it because of the teacher. He explains concepts in ways that are easy to understand and does not make a big deal out of minor mistakes.
Course highlights:
The teacher was incredible. I learned more in his class than in any other math class I have ever taken. I learned proofs, I learned theorems, and I learned the importance of limits in calculus. For the first time in my life, I understood word problems.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Come to class, regardless of the attendance policy. Missing even one day can set you back. Also, listen in class. Do not try to figure everything out from the book.
