Background Knowledge Expected
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
for higher minds in the field of mathematics, engineering and computer science
Course highlights:
people thing is hard but i think is cool. the main highlights are derivatives, diffrenciation and integration
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
work more and solve a lot of examples and past questions
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I enjoyed the order in which the topics were taught. When I originally took this course I was confused most of the time and the material did not seem to line up correctly for me to get a full understanding of what it is exactly I'm learning this for. But with the summer course it picked up with material that was easy to connect to what I learned in MATH 160 the previous fall semester. Overall this is one of the main reasons I was able to succeed within this class.
Course highlights:
The main highlight of this course would have to be the instructor. Many times I have struggled within a class due to me not being fond of the teaching methods employed by my instructor for the course and more times than not it has led to some pretty bad ending for the semester. One of the things that Clayton was able to do was he would be thorough in his explanations for the material. He was also willing to expand on how each of these topics were connected ensuring that when the time came for an exam the students felt confident and prepared for the content expected to be on the exam. On top of this the classroom was not filled with 100+ students which made it easier to get 1-on-1 help with instructor on any topics giving you trouble which is always a plus. Overall the comfort level I had with this instructor is similar to the instructors who taught courses I enjoyed very much.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
Be prepared to essentially feel lost and confused as to why it is you have to learn this section of Calculus. Although it may seem out of left field in terms of its connections to Calc I, in order to understand Calc II it's easier to accept the fact that most of this is going to make little to no sense, yet it will all slowly become useful for the field in which it's being employed. Don't be afraid to seek as much help as possible because this is definitely going to be a tough course and any and all help will be used fully.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This teacher was enthusiastic about the course, however it was difficult to understand all of the subject matter. If you are taking this course it is highly advisable to fully make use of the professor's office hours as well as think about getting a tutor.
Course highlights:
I learned a bit more about derivatives, but a great focus of the class was on integrals and finding the area of shapes if they were rotated around an axis. You also learn a good deal about finding limits and convergence and divergence.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Definitely visit office hours if you are unsure about a concept. The class moves fast with subject matter building on itself, so if you get lost it will be incredibly difficult to catch up.
