This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I have always struggled with math, and calculus was particularly difficult for me. However, Professor Duong gave me the confidence to keep going and she helped me pass a class I thought I never would. She went above an beyond to help her students succeed, including extended office hours for students. She was always patient and approachable. She also explained the concepts very clearly.
Course highlights:
I finally learned how to study for math exams. I also learned time management.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
Form a study group right away. I was fortunate enough to have a strong study group, which not only helped me stay focused and understand concepts more clearly through discussion, but they also became close friends and made the class enjoyable.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This class made me work hard for the grade I earned. It was tough and challenging,but it should be me to keep studying and working hard and it will all pay off.
Course highlights:
The professors made the lecture very entertaining so the students would be alert. I learned about many different types of mathematical concepts that helped me progress as I moved onto Math 3B
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Take good notes and study really hard to obtain a good grade.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Best teacher for calc 1 in saddleback. He doesn't take weekly quizzes or collect weekly homeworks, instead the class is entirely up to you and how well you can perform on your own. The most important thing was to stay up to date in the class, doing homework problems he gives on the day that section is taught.
Course highlights:
That looking for short cuts doesn't work, and without truly understanding the concept you can't pass with higher than a C. Jokes about many things: chuckedcheese, IVC math classes, to "kung-fu" math problems, "so easy, it's confusing"
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Do the homework problems and the test he has given on previous exams. And visit his office hours so he sees you are trying in his class.
