Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Professor Nagy grasps calculus and relates it to the real world while clearly performing methods of how to solve difficult conceptual problems and making them feel simplified.
Course highlights:
Laplace Transforms are a great way to easily solve differential equations
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Do many practice problems and read the concepts of the chapters.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This was definitely a difficult course. I think it may have more to do with the professors than the course material because I'd heard that the course wasn't that hard, but I haven't talked to any students from Michigan State, myself included, who didn't find the course difficult. However, as an engineer, I do use the things I learned in this class all the time.
Course highlights:
I learned how to solve differential equations. It sounds simple, but this class equips you to do a lot more real world engineering problems because almost everything has to be solved with diffEQs.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
You need to know how to do the Webwork problems. That's pretty much it. The quizzes and exams are just the same problems as the homework but with different numbers. That doesn't mean it was easy. There are probably over 100 different types of problems that you need to be familiar with solving in a relatively short amount of time for a quiz or exam.
