    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class had the policy that the final grade could also replace the worst test score. This helped save a lot of people's grades at the end of the semester.

    Course highlights:

    Bob Murphy definitely helped teach us what high school teachers either glimpsed over or did not explain well. He really tried to help get the point across.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study for the final a lot because if you do well it could (if the same rule is still in place) help the worst test score. This final did not seem as difficult as expected.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I feel that Calculus changes the thought human process and allows for higher critical thinking. After taking it in the Fall, I saw improvement in my ability to solve problems in physics and other technical classes.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was taking a derivative. I remember all of my friends using that word a ton and me not having a clue what it meant. Once I learned it, I was so surprised to see how easy it was and it gave me the confidence to learn other facets of Calculus.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are somewhat lost or don't fully understand the topic ask questions. You need to have a stable foundation in order to continue in Calculus. When I had trouble, I asked to meet with my professor on his free time.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course information was delivered in an approachable fashion. It was somewhat complicated material, but the course layout helped me learn it with confidence.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed the progression of information as well as the real world correlations brought up by the professor.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend making sure that you understand, at least for the most part, each module of material before trying to understand the next. It only makes it easier as time goes on.
