This class was tough.
Course Overview:
You definitely will need to take this course to get into your full major if you're a transfer or pre major applicant. This class is fast paced, and does expect you to have a firm grasp on the mathematics you've previously taken to get to this level.
Course highlights:
So far, I've learned quite a bit about how the demand curve shifts based off of different situations and how to actually calculate specifics in each of these instances. It's interesting to be able to think about what in the real world you can apply the information you've learned from this course. It's definitely a good framework for the classes to come, but make sure you're on top of your game.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
It doesn't use as much calculus as the name of the class might imply, but it does require you to take derivatives. I would recommend studying graphs and their transformations, as well as addition, subtraction, and fractions. You're not allowed to use calculators in this course, so having your basic math skills in top shape is extremely important. This class is definitely doable. If you're having trouble with this class there's also CLAS drop-in that can help with anything you don't understand!
