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

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:
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.
