Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I highly recommend taking Professor Abramson's class if at all possible. An online class can often be difficult as there is sometimes little to no communication between the student and teacher. This was not the case for MAT 265. The online forums were great, and Jay really made it a friendly place for students and teachers to communicate. The response times were short; any question was answered within 24 hours, weekends included. The lecture videos are extremely well put together and he can explain a difficult concept and make it graspable with ease.
Course highlights:
I went in to this class concerned with my ability to learn Calculus. At the end of the class, I was ready to take on any math class with confidence. This class really brought everything from previous math classes together and I know now that I have a fighting chance to face any math challenge that lies before me.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
USE THE FORUMS! Jay doesn't discount any question and is very easy to chat with. He is quick with responses. The best way to study is to retake previous tests and homework sets in WeBWork.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
It's a required course for most students, so not much choice in there.
Course highlights:
I've learned much about integral Calculus, Series, and other forms of mathematical monstrosities.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure to study, read the book, and do lots of example problems!
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Math is so vital for all majors. Take the advanced courses if you want to be an engineer because it teaches you how to solve problems in a bunch of different ways which can be carried over to your other classes like chemistry
Course highlights:
You learn the basics of calculus. Functions, derivatives, probability, geometry. The list goes on but the problems are long
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Study all materials. And practice does make perfect in this course so be sure to keep up with those homework assignments
