    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Socrates is one of the Best professors I have ever had! He makes math so fun and enjoyable. I never thought I would say that because I was not that great at math in high school! He has a great personality and always comes to class happy and bubbly. He encourages students to participate in class and even gets the shy people to come out of their shells. He motivated me and other students to try harder and to pursue STEM majors. Professor Socrates is great and I will definitely take more math classes with him in the future.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, I learned the basics of calculus 1 and it's importance in the real world. Other students and I learned it's practical applications such as in many engineering fields or in various fields of physics. Most importantly, I learned that, not is calculus a great tool for prospective careers, but it is also a great subject to know to further your scholastic knowledge.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice for students considering this course would be to develop good study and note taking skills early on so that by the time this course comes around, studying and note taking in class will come more naturally. Professor Socrates can go a bit fast at times, so I recommend taking pictures of the board if you are not that great at jotting down notes fast enough yet. Also, the current edition of the book being used (calculus stewart 7th or 8the edition) in class is a tad difficult to read as it doesn't explain certain concepts well enough in my opinion. Socrates does a better job at explaining concepts than the book does.
