    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Prof. Salari expects a lot from his students. He assigns a fair amount of homework and checks it regularly. He does discuss each section thoroughly, fields questions, and does hands-on board work in every class. I found the classes to be very helpful and enlightening. However, sometimes he would make a simple mistake and if a student pointed it out he would often get a little sensitive about it. His tests were insane. He takes off unnecessarily large amounts of points for very small mistakes. He will sometimes mention something off-handedly in class, but then have an entire problem about it on the test (keep in mind that his tests only had 5-6 problems and so one problem would make up a large amount of your grade). That being said, if you pay attention in class and especially study the problems he does in class, you'll do fine.

    Course highlights:

    I definitely learned the required material in this class. The professor is thorough and will field your questions throughout the class. If you didn't understand a homework problem, he makes time in each class to discuss any and all problems that are brought up. Mostly, you learn the material for the first series of Calc.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best way to succeed in this class is to show up for every class--ON TIME--and pay attention to everything he talks about in class, especially the practice problems he brings up and has you do during class. He often uses the exact same problems on his tests, sometimes without even changing the numbers.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend taking this course at Edmond's Community College, if you need to take Calculus I. It wasn't a fun class, but then I don't really enjoy math very much, but I learned a ton. And, I would recommend taking it under Salari if you don't have a habit of being late to class he's very finicky about that. Salari knows his stuff, and if he sees your really giving it you all he will go out of his way to help you succeed.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a ton about limits, derivatives, anti-derivatives, optimization, related rates and continuity. I also learned it probably would have been a good Idea to not take this course in the summer quarter.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Take a lot of notes, copying down the problems he works on the board these often show up on the exams. Form a study group, I found this helped a lot. Use external resources, I found the videos on Youtube channels "mathbff" and "rdavisedcc" to be the most helpful for this course.
