This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I highly recommend this course, because one needs it for a second and third calculus.
Course highlights:
What I learned from this class was that, math is extremely important in the real world. One thing that really stood out for me was the limit laws. An example of a limit is, when a nurse is going to give someone an injection or liquid medicine, they have a plus or minus a certain amount that they can administer without causing harm to the person. In calculus 1, one gets to understand how to apply math in real situations.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
What you need to succeed in this course is to study a lot, seek help from tutors, and create a study group with classmates. This is a heavy course with new material and math language that one needs to make sure they set a lot of time to study and really focus on the class. I also would recommend not to take a second heavy course, I would suggest to take an easy class along with calculus 1 or just calculus 1 alone.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I wouldn't recommend this course due to the fact that the material isn't tought in the best way possible. The professor doesn't elaborate on many of the topics throughout the course as well as he should.
Course highlights:
I still learned a great amount about calculus, but I also did a lot of studying on my own after getting the very basics from this class.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Study at least 2 hours everyday and go over every topic in each chapter carefully.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I recommend this class and professor because the professor was organized and very fair. In explanation- the lecture notes were very clear, we didn't have to wright down the formulas/ proofs, they were already on the notes( we had note handouts before each new lecture)which helped a lot!
Course highlights:
I didn't have to worry about odd ball questions on the test- the homework and quizzes reflected highly the test! I learned that when you take an integral of a function the dx of the function simply goes away after the integral! Also that the integral is simply the rate of change of the derivative!
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Practice, practice, and practice math some more. If you don't understand something - don't be afraid of ask questions or seeking free tutoring at school. If you don't understand expected knowledge- then ask the professor once to go over it then i'm sure you'll remember what to do!
