    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    if you do the homework and understand it, the midterm will be super easy. but his liectures were really hard to follow

    Course highlights:

    second part of calculus so we did integrals mostly. homework was really hard, but it made the midterm and final easy in comparison

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    textbook is not useful and homework is assigned after every class and you have one week to compete it

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    best math professor I've encountered at ucsb. described how to solve problems well and gave practice exams

    Course highlights:

    homework assignments could be time consuming, but they were pretty easy if you had gone to lecture and took notes

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    do the study guides and practice exams and understand that material and you will do well on the actual exams

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course, specifically with this professor, because after talking to friends who were taking the course at the time and who ended up taking it later on, it seemed like I had the overall most positive experience. The professor, Pfaff, was very engaging in lecture and even though she made a lot of mistakes on the board, if you made it into a game to see who could catch her errors first, it was actually kind of fun, plus it helped you learn the material. One of the reasons most responsible for my positive experience was Pfaff’s availability outside of class in office hours (always go to your professor’s office hours if you can). She was a fantastic one-on-one explainer and always passionate about helping you with any problem you had. Going to office hours is what made it possible for me to do well in that class, since her tests were pretty challenging. Ultimately, I came out of Math 3B knowing how to be bold and ask professors to help (they are people too), network with my peers, and do some pretty hard integrals.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course for me were the simple successes I saw after working hard to finish the homework like acing section and lecture quizzes, answering questions correctly in class, scoring well on tests, and helping fellow peers to understand the material. The most valuable skill this class left me with though was an ability to sit down for hours at a time, stay focused, and be productive (a skill I would be ever grateful for come finals week). This skill developed because of the assigned homework, which was time consuming and very challenging. In addition to this skill, also known as work ethic, the course taught me how to network with my peers to solve impossible homework problems and to go into office hours, which are good for getting help but also for making important connections; the professor for this course actually ended up writing me a letter of recommendation later in the year. Ultimately, I came out of this course a better students and ready to conquer the next two quarters of my freshman year, something I feel many of my friends were not fortunate enough to get out of their first quarter of college.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    To students considering this course, take it. But look up the professor teaching it on ratemyprofessor.com first, because of all the things I have learned my freshman year of college, one of the most important is that the professor matters. The professor can make or break a class. A class with one professor may not even be comparable to the same class with a different one. If the professor has good ratings, take the course. It will challenge you, but won’t be impossible, and also it will prepare you for other more difficult courses to come.
