    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Very tough professor and made calculus seem much harder than it really was.

    Course highlights:

    Learned some calculus from this class but not the true depth of it because of how hard the class was.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study every single day and go to office hours and do the extra credit. Tests are extremely tough.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Frank Massey teaches Calculus at a brisk pace, putting examples up on a board, both proving the concept he is trying to show, and then showing an example of it applied to the real world. The key to learning the most you can from him is to ask questions, especially if you are confused, but also in general. He may seem lost in another world as he teaches, but if you ask him something thought provoking, he will answer insightfully, and you'll definitely learn more than just listening passively. He is a great teacher, and I'm glad he is teaching Calculus.

    Course highlights:

    So far, he's shown me that Calculus is not difficult, and that it's a great tool to analyze the world around us. It's not easy, either, but it's amazing the way the patterns of the world fit so nicely into math. I'm so glad to have a teacher like Frank who is able to explain things patiently if I don't understand.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely work on the practice exams he offers, he doesn't change the exams from the format he used in previous years. He wants you to succeed, so use the tools at your disposal. You have access to tutoring, as well as your classmates. The concepts are somewhat abstract, so you need to practice them to nail them down. Trust him, work hard, and trust in yourself, and you'll succeed in this course.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    While he does have a moderate teaching style, his grading can be quite harsh and strict.

    Course highlights:

    The main points of this course were limits, derivatives, and antiderivatives.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you take good notes and write down the examples. Most of the time the homework follows these examples.
