This class was tough.
Course Overview:
The way he teaches isn't compatible with the majority of the students that is why a large number of his students fail. He doesn't take his time to fully articulate each step for a certain problem.
Course highlights:
The only highlights that there were for me are probably the realizations that calculus is going to be a lot more challenging if pre-calc is already this tough. I did not learn anything new and did not retain any information from his class at all. Everything I know was from prior knowledge.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Be ready for a load of homework and pages of notes. Always be in class, missing a day is missing a lot of information. Always remember to bring your calculator. Don't depend on other for notes because everyone takes notes differently.
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
I recommend this course because it sets up the basics of math for anyone who is interesting in studying in a field of science or mathematics.
Course highlights:
Throughout this course, students learn how to solve and graph equations, how do deal with calculus functions, and how to solve trigonometry problems.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure to always do the homework; not only does it give you points toward your final grade, but I found that it significantly helped my test performance.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Professor Renwick always asks us if we understand the concept or if we need more clarification on it before moving on to the next concept, and he explains the material thoroughly. He also encourages us to go to SI sessions or to the Tutorial Center if we need more help understanding the lessons.
Course highlights:
Renwick explains each concept in depth, so you will understand the concept inside out as long as you pay attention in class and ask questions when you need clarification.
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
Whether you're naturally skilled or barely proficient in math, Renwick will explain the material well enough and will answer your questions to make sure you understand the concepts. So just pay attention, take notes, ask questions as needed, and do the homework. You should be good if you follow that advice.
