This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because it is very intriguing and challenging. Even though the content is fairly difficult, the way in which the professor presents the material is very clear and straightforward.
Course highlights:
The highlights of this course were derivatives and limits! Not only did we learn the material but we actually applied them to real life. Our professor constantly used real life examples in which the concepts and theorems that we learned actually came into action. Also, I learned that the rate of change of an object can determine many things such as velocity which believe it or not can come in handy.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
I would tell future students that plan on taking this course to simply be very attentive and definitely seek help immediately once you start to feel confused about the material. Also make sure to review your algebra skills because they do come in handy when dealing with derivatives that involve trigonometrical functions. Be very open-minded when it comes to solving problems because manipulating the functions are sometimes the key to getting the correct answer.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This is my second time taking Math 2A, and let me tell you I HATE CALCULUS, but this teacher does wonders. I recently took my math midterm and I felt so confident considering my 1st midterm last quarter ended miserably.
Course highlights:
He teachers you everything you need to know, not only how to do it but why you do it that way. He teaches in a way the students will understand. I learned so much more than I did going in. I actually know how to solve limits and derivatives!
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
STUDY STUDY STUDY! Calc is not easy, I mean some people it comes naturally. I LOVE MATH, but HATE CALCULUS. So that tells how hard this subject is.
