This class was tough.
I would recommend it mainly because Dr. Hedden was a laid back and intelligent professor. If you are going into the college of natural science or the college of engineering, then you will need this course to complete degree requirements. It helps that this particular professor is awesome at what he does. He will help you to succeed and doesn't want this class to get in the way of you getting into a certain college. This is a tough class if don't stay caught up. Careful with the webworks homework because it can be tricky if you don't know what the computer is asking for.
You will learn the basics of calculus. You will start with limits and go on to derivatives and integrals (anti-derivatives). The only differentiation that isn't covered is logarithmic differentiation which carries onto integration. Dr. Hedden's attitude and teaching is the biggest highlight followed up by some of the interesting content.

Advice for students:
The advice I would give is to study and keep up. While many people have heard this advice its impact and importance cannot be understated. Some people are already very smart in math so they can pass this course with no problem. The vast majority of others will have to work for it even if you like math and were good at it in high school. If took calculus in high school, you will be much more prepared with the concepts even if you forgot how to do them though I must add that background knowledge is not mandatory to pass. It just helps.
