Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Instead of the normal four lectures a week, this class has three and a lab portion, which challenges students to work in groups and solve problems beyond what they thought they were capable of.
The professor has a PhD in math, but knows exactly how to communicate to first and second year students clearly and effectively. He is deeply passionate about planting firm ideas of mathematics into students' heads, but in quite fun, approachable, and allegorical ways. From this class, I learned Mathematica, a powerful calculation engine and how to combine all levels of calculus into a unified theory and apply that theory to everything from highly complex, nuanced calculations to experiences in everyday life.

Advice for students:
Multiple online homework assignments are given every month and are due the night before a test. Be sure to spread these assignments out, completely them periodically so that information can properly establish itself in your brain.
