    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is definitely a weed out class. It is a lot of work and it is critical that you have taken calculus before you take this course. The homework and activities are not as important as memorizing the practice quizzes and tests and learning how to do those types of problems because these are the types you will be tested on.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about calculus as well as how I need to study in order to successfully pass a difficult college course.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    This course requires a lot of work, it is imperative to do all of the practice quizzes and tests as well as know how to do those types of problems because this is where he draws his questions from. He also gives out tips about what will be on the tests in class and in office hours so go to every class and as many office hours as possible.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's a great course to take because it really shows the transition from high school to college where as a student you need to go beyond what you're used to to work for that good grade in the class.

    Course highlights:

    Integrals, how to study by myself, how to teach myself and to ask questions if I needed help. I took this class multiple times to prepare myself for Calc 2 and 3.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study, do the homework, ask questions, go to office hours, go to tutoring, do old exams, read the book, sometimes study with friends to get a feel for the material!

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It is great practice to do the practice quizzes and tests before the actual exam because it is similar questions to what is on the tests and quizzes.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to time manage all the new material and also learned shortcuts to make the math more bearable.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not be afraid to go out of your comfort zone.
