Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I have never taken a math class that I actually knowing a lot. This professor does not spoon feed the material but teaches it in a way that makes you think and work out the concepts. He does this by asking the class questions based on what they already know and then connects it with the new material. He then solves problems/equations by having the class work together. In any case, he made it interactive and made this class fun! I don't think I can ever say that about math at all.
Course highlights:
Math is one of my weaker subjects BUT I did have some favorite concepts because I understood them. We learned a lot about integrals and dove real deep into dervatives. And whether or not something converges or diverges. I'd say my favorites are find what x is or what theta is. But once we got into the convergence and divergence, that's when it got kind of hard! Just keep up with the material and practice everyday, it will come easy by the exams!
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Math is a practice type of class. I've learned through out college that classes like this (like physics, chemistry, statistics etc) need to be practiced everyday. If you do problems everyday it doesn't matter how long you do it for. An hour or two will be enough! Just do it every day. The more you practice, the easier it gets. And by the time it's finals, you won't need to cram everything! Just a few problems from every section and you're set for the exam!
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course to anyone who LOVES math because it is challenging, yet fun and extremely interesting.
Course highlights:
The course had a great atmosphere, the professor was great (although her accent was at times tough to understand) I learned all there is to learn about Calculus 2 including: Integration Techniques and Taylor Series.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Calculus 2 at CSUN, and at any school, will be an extremely challenging course. My advice to you is to study study study, try your hardest to follow the professor's lectures, and always ask questions.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this class for all engineers who want to understand just how important computers have become in the engineering world.
Course highlights:
I learned how to solve engineering problems on a piece of paper with important concepts of math.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Practice problems. You learn as you practice and ask for help from anyone who can help.
