This class was tough.
Course Overview:
It is a wonderful class! Fun and educational.
Course highlights:
I learned a lot about why everything works the way it does, rather than just how to compute answers.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure you have a lot of time to practice the concepts and problems, and do the homework! It is extremely beneficial to spend time outside of class practicing and improving.
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.
