Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This teacher has a very difficult teaching style to understand. Once you have learned how he does his tests, it is very possible to finish the class. However, I did not prefer his methods.
Course highlights:
I answered every question on the final correctly. This was the most difficult final I have ever taken so I felt very accomplished.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
I did not realize it till the morning of the final when one of the other classmates pointed it out, but his practice test were taken from the book questions (not necessary an assigned homework question). And the test was written from one above or below the practice question.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
The course was great. However I would recommend another instructor. Overall the class was difficult but I learned many concepts throughout the semester.
Course highlights:
The instructor did well in teaching mathematical concepts. Unfortunately, the tests contained problems that were not covered in class and required more time to complete than was available. This made it very difficult to prepare for exams since what we were told to expect never really materialized. Once, the professor placed a problem on the exam that was invalid. After wasting a long time attempting to solve the problem he then revealed that the problem was unsolvable. The course built on my knowledge of calculus and has prepared me to apply the concepts to practical problems. The course has given me helped prepare me for Calculus based Physics II.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
In order to succeed during this course I would recommend study groups and office hours whenever possible. The tests were almost impossible to finish so it was critical to have your concepts down.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I wouldn't recommend this course because the professor's teaching style is very different and difficult at first. I would recommend this course however, because due to the professor's style, it forces you to pay attention, and actively pursue the education of Calculus 3 on your own time. This actively makes you time manage better and study better. It's a tough course that is rewarding once you have completed even one problem. It is a challenge, but why take a class if it isn't?
Course highlights:
I learned about the Cartesian Coordinate System along with... - Vectors in 3-Dimensions - Planes in 3-Dimensions - Quadratic Surfaces and Curves - Dot Product Rule (Advanced Application) - Cross Product Rule (Advanced Application) - Partial Derivatives - Distance between two parallel planes in space - Plus more...
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Be ready to work hard and study hard in order to succeed. Do not slack off and take the initiative to excel in the class.
