    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it's a whole new world of math. What I have learned before in algebra, trig, and pre-calculus all tie together. This course takes all those previous math courses and goes more into depth on subjects. It's a challenge people should take.

    Course highlights:

    Honestly I have learned a lot of new things in this course. Made me think on how some of the things I learned actually apply to what we do outside of school.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are willing to take this course I would recommend to ask for extra help. If you try to get through this course by yourself then you won't get a good grade. Getting extra help from someone whose taken the course before will guarantee that you will pass the course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a very pivotal course in the Calculus work. It gives the learner the basics for integration and differentiation in readiness for future calculus classes. It contains the basic principles and theorems that one needs in order to understand why and how various operations are undertaken in the whole larger calculus sphere, and moreso when applying them in Engineering and other related disciplines of knowledge.

    Course highlights:

    Basic concepts of Calculus. (differentiation and integration) and the theorems involved.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    It would be of great help to first study this course. If you are already enrolled in the course, take note that you need to use the course book, (Essential Calculus 2nd Edition) often, say like at least 2 hours per day. This closeness with the book will help a lot. If those theorems do not work for you, its good you get help from large community of online help. Course Hero has very dedicated tutors for that matter. This is partly because the tutors in the university are sometimes very busy to help, and getting help from your trusted online tutors can be of great help. Thank you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    He is always happy to explain and help with different concepts; if people are struggling with tests or homework, he makes sure to help by walking around class to confirm if a step is done correctly while the students do math problems.

    Course highlights:

    I've learnt optimization, Newton's Law of Cooling, derivatives, and graphing those derivatives; some processes were unclear to me; however by my professor's clear explanations of solving step-by-step math problems with the class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The homework is done by WebAssign, therefore some problems can give videos to help or explain how answers were conceived. If students need help, do not be shy; ask the professor as he is willing to help and does ask every beginning of class if the class has any questions.
