Background Knowledge Expected
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
For all of the math professors teaching a certain course, there is usually one that is avid in helping students succeed in the class. FLG is one of those professors. He is super helpful in office hours and his lectures are pretty clear.
Course highlights:
The material covered in the course includes series and sequences and the tests that can be used to decide whether they are convergent or divergent. learning this material feels like learning calculus again where the material new and can be confusing.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Go to office hours for sure. The first part of the course is fairly simple, but if studying isn't done to keep up with the tests for series and sequences, then you'll likely get lost in the material.
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
I highly recommend this course because it gave me a better understanding of Calculus after high school. It also helped me very much with my science courses.
Course highlights:
One of the high lights I learned was being able to solve almost any integral off the top of my head.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
My advice would be to go to office hours if at any time you're confused. The course continues with the material so if you don't understand a step, you will be confused for the rest of the quarter.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend it, because its the end of a series after all! You might as well finish it, provided it doesn't interfere with you meeting all the requirements for your major.
Course highlights:
It was 75% memorizing and applying divergence tests and 25% miscellaneous topics you will pick up after doing a couple homework problems.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Take time out of your day to REALLY review and understand the notes your professor writing on the board. Actually if any one of your professors doesn't use PowerPoint count yourself lucky, because they will be thorough in their notes. Anything you don't understand, just ask your professor!
