    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Arriagada is very slack when it comes to giving work in a realistic time period and he is very eccentric which can and has effected the learning dynamic of such an important class. His teaching techniques are very different, not personalized and non traditional which, for some students, is fine. But for students like myself who prefer a very traditional and one on one educational setting, it was difficult to always grasp the content being taught. If you do take this class with him, I recommend a lot of personal studying and also that you get a basic understand of the next lesson before he teaches it.

    Course highlights:

    Derivatives and anti derivatives. Although his methods were unconventional, he made it very easy to love these fundamental aspects of calculus.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Math can be difficult, but once you understand the concepts being taught, it makes you feel like a genius. And that's another important key in math; Understanding. There is a difference between learning and understanding. Learning is to know something one way, example 2+2=4. Whereas understanding means that you know a concept from every given angle, example 2+2=4 3+1=4 4+0=4 Learning is for now, Understanding is forever
