Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
I am putting two thumbs up for this class because you will learn a lot about Calculus and its applications to the real world. It is a great class to clarify and to strengthen your knowledge about Calculus and its importance. Through this class, you will not only learn about Math, but how to use it in the real world regardless it is STEM related or Liberal Arts related. This class meets up everyday, but through an alternating system of Professor's lesson and lecture and TA's review sessions, preparatory sessions, and practice session. I really like this class structure because it helps prepares the student for more advance and sophisticated Math and real world related materials and problems. It helps the brain master more simple concepts and problems by using Calculus before understanding and mastering more advance and complicated concepts and problems. In this way, I feel that the student will have an easier time knowing how to use what they learn and apply it to other more challenging problems that may be real world problems such as calculating the Marginal Revenue and Marginal Cost of a good or service. This is an example of how Calculus could be used in Business and Economics. Overall, this class was great and intuitive in that it helped me strengthen my Math skills and also use the concepts and skills that I learned from this class towards my other classes such as Macroeconomics and my future Computer Science course that I am preparing for. I have also used Calculus or related Calculus to some of my real life experiences outside of college such as looking at graphs of total revenue for the week and what each curve means based on their slope and numeric number. In addition, I have also indirectly saw how Calculus influenced physics such as calculating the acceleration of a car that is driving. Calculus is a very useful class for every student no matter what major and I believe this MATH 424A class will help you accomplish what you want to know about Calculus and help you master it in order to apply it to the real world.
Course highlights:
This course had many highlights, For the most part, I love the class and recitation structure that the class gives. Through this structure, I was able to review what I learned in class and solidify it before attending class the next day and learning a subject that is new or is a continuation of the previous topic. This way, I was confident I actually knew the concepts and skills that my Professor was teaching me through practicing similar problems during recitation. Another highlight was that I was able to get a lot of practice from the textbook, and practice/review sheets that my Professor makes with other Calculus Professors. The practice really helped because my Professor did not directly post onto our assignment page the answers/solutions to the problems. Instead, we were to figure out how to do the problems through our knowledge about the topics and their applications to solve the problems. We were allowed to study and work with other students, but we still had to do other own independent work. In this way, it gave us room to explore the concepts and their applications to the problem. But after x numbers of days, my Professor would post onto the assignment page the answers to the problems. But, there are no solutions. This helped us make sure that we got the right answers, but also let us independently use logic and reasoning to see if we did the problems right. But, of course, there was also office hours that my Professor and his two TAs had during the week that we were free to go at anytime during these hours and sometimes outside these hours to ask for help. I received a lot of help because there was my Professor that would help me when I have some questions regarding a concept or skill and also Two TAs that I could ask questions to. This really help me improve my knowledge about Math and help strengthen myself.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
The Professor would give you sufficient time and a lot of practice opportunities and review sheets to prepare for quizzes, tests, and exams as well as to simply master concepts and skills in Calculus. He would also give real world problems and relate it with Calculus which helps a lot with mastering its applications in the real world.
Pretty easy, overall.

Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This was an amazing class with an equally amazing professor. The class notes and lectures are really thorough and if you really put your full attention and focus into the information during class, you will most likely be very successful in this class.
Course highlights:
I learned a lot from this class, from derivatives to optimization and then to integration by parts. It was really helpful in letting me understand both the mathematical and conceptual aspects of real life examples and usages of many mathematical applications.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Students should go to every class because there are always new material to learn from every class and the professor does not post any class notes on Canvas besides homework and exam reviews. There is always something to learn every class, especially during office hours, if students come in with questions about possible exam questions that are posted online. But overall, if you ask questions during class and do some other practice problems outside of class, students would most likely do well in this course.
