    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't recommend this course if you want a teacher who gives good notes. This professors notes are a lot like writing paragraphs, he literally almost writes everything he says word for word making it hard to understand his notes and to write your notes.

    Course highlights:

    When we go through the easy parts it is really easy. I learned that his test seem short but they're actually long because one question has so many parts to it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If it's required take it but if not then I wouldn't recommend to take it. Don't waste your time taking classes you don't need and first focus on the classes that are required for you.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it covers most of the things you would learn in high school calculus. It serves as a recap and if you didn't fully grasp certain aspects of calculus in high school, you will certainly earn a full and better understanding of calculus when you take this course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the recitations that were on Fridays because it was a recap of what you learned throughout the week and during this time, we have quizzes and worksheets to see where we are at. The worksheets help to give us an idea of what we were dealing with and while they help when I did my homework, they also gave me a better understanding of what I was learning at the moment.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to make sure you have a background knowledge of pre-calculus and trigonometry. You should be familiar with the basics of calculus and if you took calculus in high school, it doesn't mean that this would be an easy class to pass. Certain things are solved differently so you would be careful not to take shortcuts because if you just wrote down the answer without showing your work, then you would lose points. Make sure you understand what you are learning and if you are confused about something, go to your professors office hours and seek help, otherwise you would do poorly in midterms and finals.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class, because the professor challenges the students to step out of their comfort zone when learning Calculus. It's not your normal math class where you learn the subject and do many examples. This class challenges the student to fully understand a formula, variable, every component of a problem and to be able to prove it and understand everything so that it can be applied multiple ways with different problems. However, it is a challenging course since the professor does not curve anything and problem sets are more challenging than most of the examples gone over in class. The class is fast paced and the professors writing is semi-difficult to read from afar.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights were learning about integrals and how the volume and area is taken from abnormal shapes not usually dealt with in lower math classes. Also, the introduction to rotating graphs was something new and cool to learn.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Tutoring every other day helps a lot. Suggested problems used to be a thing of the past you could ignore and get away with, but not with this course. Consistency is key, because practicing problems and really trying to understand every component of a problem is what will help you pass. In addition, timing yourself on problems helps time efficiency when you go to take the exams.
