    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is really important for majors that have heavy math components.

    Course highlights:

    In this class you learn all about what differential equations are and how to go about solving them.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read every chapter before attending the lecture, it really helps to go into the class knowing some of the material already. Take very thorough notes and do some practice problems every now and then. Understanding the material in this class requires practice and a lot of time. Also, don't be afraid to ask for help if you don't understand the material. Some problems can be very intricate and complex, so it's totally ok if you don't understand it right away.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Arrigotti has been teaching for over 40 years. He's learned every method to breakdown anything difficult so that anybody could learn the material. He's very nice, understanding, and accommodating for any outside issues.

    Course highlights:

    I had taken the course 4 years prior to retaking it. This time around, I've learned more than I ever could have imagined.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the homework! Any and all of it. Don't skip one because it's difficult because it could turn out to be incredibly simple (or on the tests). If you can't seem to figure it out, just ask! There's a couple tutors who can help and Mr. Arrigotti is very much available and willing to help
