Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course and teacher for anyone attending Bellevue College that would like to pursue a science, engineering, or math career. The teacher is excellent and the homework is not overbearing.
Course highlights:
The highlights of the course were being in an environment with fellow people interested in the topic and a teacher who had a background in both physics and calculus work. I learned how to calculate derivatives, anti-derivatives, integrals, and much more.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Take math 151 before you take math 152. It is difficult at times to understand what is occurring in the class if you never took the prerequisite. Also do your homework, it's not required in this class but it is crucial.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Calculus 2 is all about integrals, so if you need to learn about them take Calculus 2. I can't say the in class instruction was very helpful to me, but I'm often better self taught. I hear at other colleges they don't let you use calculators on tests, which sounds like a terrible idea to me so that is definitely a plus of this course.
Course highlights:
I learned how to find many integrals, and how to estimate them. It's sort of disappointing that not many of them can be solved by hand, but the concepts learned are none the less essential.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
You need to actually do all of the homework provided by the instructor(I usually don't in math classes and get away fine, but not here!)
