This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This course I easier than calc 1 and 2. It sums up all the applications of integrals and derivatives in a realistic manner. The entire course focuses on those 2 math terms, physics also plays a vital role so be sure to study up on formulas for kinematics and energy as you will begin to see how those formulas were actually derived using calculus. I struggled with derivatives and integrals even repeating calc 2, but this class somehow made it easier to remember because it was logical and partly because after physics I understood what I was trying to solve beforehand. Also helped that professor was always willing to help and slow down if you needed. We also used mathlab for projects, its very helpful to have experience using that software as we begin to input more complex commands for polar coordinates.
Course highlights:
complete knowledge of how to solve integrals, derivatives, plot coordinates, polar coordinates, draw graphs related to functions and use calculator to verify.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
The course is intense be sure you make time to study and do all practice problems.
