Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Being a student at this college , it is a requirement that you have talent Calc 1. It is very interesting in that this is the first class to a 3-part subject (Calc 1-3) that you will have to take at Mines. I recommend that you soak up all the knowledge and understanding that you can get in this course because this is the foundation for all the Calculus courses you will have to take.
Course highlights:
This course taught me how to do things that I did not even know how to do such as taking the integral (which MANY of your college classes use) and more!
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
GO TO OFFICE HOURS!!!! This is so advantageous in that you build an essential relationship with your professor and you become more acclimated to how they teach so it would be easier for you to understand in class.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
When I came to Mines, I had no experience with Calculus, and I was way over my head. Despite getting a D in the course, it taught me valuable lessons, and my professor taught me that others would always be willing to help me understand the concepts as long as I put in the right amount of work.
Course highlights:
I learned a lot about Calculus, and the course gave me the tools I needed to succeed at my school, even though I did not pass the course with a C or higher.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
I suggest going into the office hours that professors offer, and attending study sessions. I also recommend getting help with challenging concepts immediately, rather than putting it off until days before an exam.
