Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This a a complex subject, so if you are taking this class, you need to at least have some interest in the subject. Even for students whom math comes easy, this subject will require time and effort.
Course highlights:
The highlight of this class was meeting people who were taking the class as well. I learned that meeting people in the same class will lead to more resources to do well.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Don't be afraid to get a tutor. They are really helpful.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This course is required for all engineering fields and most science fields. If you have to take this course, Dr. Maginnis is a good professor to have. He does a good job of explaining the complicated calculations in a relatively easy to understand way.
Course highlights:
In this course, you will learn integration by parts, u substitution for integrals, trig substitution, L'Hôpital's rule, improper integrals, applications of the integral (namely to find centroids, work, surface area, and arc length), taylor polynomials, taylor series, polar coordinates, area under the curve of polar coordinates, parametric equations, and, you will also learn a lot about testing whether an infinite series or sequence converges.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Always show up to recitation and lecture. By the end of the semester, only about a quarter of the lecture hall was full. Many of the students who did not go to lecture were not doing well. After every written homework assignment, double check your work with a SAS tutor. They are free to use and they will help verify you answers. Always do the online homework. You are given as many attempts as you want up until the due date so there is no excuse not to have 100% in that category. If you do well on your homework and online homework, that will help keep your grade high in the class. Finally, remember that there is usually a really big curve in the class. That does not mean you should be lazy but, if you study really hard and do not get the grade you want, your score will likely curve up.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
