    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Ledford knows his stuff and is an excellent teacher to learn from. He is always willing to help if asked.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about different differential equations and to be less dependent on a caluculator.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to do all of your homework and go to class! He provides detailed notes with examples, but does not post them online, so it is best to attend class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course, because I believe the professor was very thorough in explaining problems and ideas, in and outside of class, and will make sure understand if you put in effort; however, I wouldn't recommend this course if you aren't willing to put in the effort and time.

    Course highlights:

    I learned math skills such as Laplace Transforms which come in handy if you are taking a Nuclear Engineering route. I also learned how to manipulate differential equations. Learning how to manipulate and solve differential equations with processes learned in this class such as undetermined coefficients and variation of parameters are necessary for higher level engineering courses.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take this course as if you are going to fail. Don't slack off especially in the beginning. Stay organized and on top of homework, and use any tools the professor gives, they are essential. Khan Academy has a lot of videos on Differential Equations work, and work through the practice problems if you have time. If you want to prepare before make sure your algebra is good, since minor problems can be hazardous during tests.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a class where you learn more than just the basics of Differential Equations. Dr. Ledford ensures that each student understands more than just what is expected as per the curriculum; he derives each one of the concepts down the the fundamentals and teaches from the bottom up.

    Course highlights:

    No quizzes, lots of review and homework, 4 tests

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always stay on top of your curriculum, and stay ahead of what he is teaching so you go in knowing what he is going to talk about.
