Math-heavy
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Engineering is heavy on the physics and in physics motion and angles are paramount to know. Without a specific understanding of trigonometry the process gets all that more difficult. Taking this class was far more helpful that precalc as it was specific and important for my course of study.
Course highlights:
Derivatives and the inverse functions of integrals. Trigonometry is one of the main users of these to important functions and our professor taught us these two functions and their uses before ever taking calc 1-2 which has set my up for greater success.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Don't skimp out. Do the problems and examples. The class is not the important aspect of the process. The most important thing in the class is that you build a good understanding and inter working of mathematical processes, a good groundwork if you will.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I recommend this course because it greatly prepares you for your first calculus class, and the professor displays enthusiasm that creates a fun learning environment. Every morning that I had this class I looked forward to going in to learn about the new topics and explore them in the creative ways that the professor would display them.
Course highlights:
Studying the unit circle was a challenge at first but ended up being the best thing that I did for myself during this course, it came up many times and simply memorizing it made for a much more streamlined learning experience, as I didn't have to constantly look it up in my notes or online.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
If you're a student considering this course, I would recommend taking it if you want to perform well in any future calculus courses or if you just want a class that will be both challenging and rewarding. As long as you complete all of the assignments on time and do some extra studying on your own time you should do just fine in this class.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Even though I have always been good at math, I found that this course was exactly what the teacher described it as. I still had to apply myself to do well.
Course highlights:
My favorite thing about the course was the professor. She was so excited to see and teach the class and she was one of those teachers who wanted you to learn as opposed to just being assignment based.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
I really recommend utilizing the tutoring sources your university makes available, I cannot stress this enough. See your professor if you're struggling and get help because math is cumulative, not understanding a specific lesson can lead to difficulty in the rest of the material.
