    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Bates is an amazing teacher. He really knows how to keep a class engaged and interested in the subject. Math can be quite overwhelming sometimes, but Professor Bates really kept things simple while still covering all of the material.

    Course highlights:

    Calculus three mostly uses things you learn back in calculus one, therefore if you understood calculus one, don't be too worried! I loved how we used derivatives and integrals, and took them one step farther with partial derivatives and indefinite integrals. It isn't too difficult of a subject if you really focus on the content and study.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study, study, study!! I wish i went over the material more, because my scores on the exams were not as high as I hoped. The material is not difficult if you really put the time and effort into practicing example problems and studying the equations.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Math 261 is challenging and it required a lot of studying, but if the effort is put in, the rewards will show.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of new things, and the class challenged me as a student because it forces me to really dedicate time to studying and to prioritize the class. The class was graded fairly and was challenging but well worth it.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Prioritize studying a little bit each day. Always do the practice problems and do not be afraid to ask for help as you are going to need it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professors make the difficult course easy to understand. It is also a required class for engineering students.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of skills that were used in PH 141 and PH 142. I also learned basic integrating skills for harder work that I may be doing in the field.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make flashcards of the equations and how to use them. Ask questions as need be and make sure to use the textbook for more practice.
