    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Conley is an amazing lecturer who will do anything to ensure his students understand the material. Usually this includes a four to five hour review session for each of the midterms and the final. He uses relatable metaphors to convey realistic applications for calculus.

    Course highlights:

    This course taught me how to appreciate mathematical modeling. It is geared for life science majors by integrating (no pun intended) calculus into biological models. LS30B will focus on chaos theory for population models.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The pre-test review session is a definite must. He will condense 3-4 weeks worth of lecture into a 4-5 hour review session. It is definitely easier than the Math 3 or 30 series. But watch out, a lot of majors will require you to take Stats 13 if you take LS30.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Will Conley is definitely one of the best teachers I've ever had for a math course. Not only is he spectacularly neat, but he really truly cares about the success of his students. He breaks down the complicated topics into simple terms to help us better understand the subject. Ultimately, he is hands-down a really genuine guy who I totally recommend having as a professor.

    Course highlights:

    With no experience beforehand, the implementation of coding as our lab was definitely a huge bonus. It's simplified programming through sage.mathcloud.com's Python program.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Manage your time, ask questions, and don't be afraid to seek help. Conley is a very approachable guy and you're provided with tons of resources, including TAs, UAs, and office hours.
