Great Intro to the Subject
Math-heavy
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Almost every college student has to take some form of Calculus by the time they graduate. If you are not a math/science major, then you will not necessarily enjoy this as much as someone else may. The professor I had was not necessarily the best, so I had to teach myself everything using the presentations and the textbook. The textbook was fantastic compared to other textbooks I had used previously. This course was frustrating at times because my professor would often solve problems incorrectly when introducing topics. This would be problematic because the homework problems would be significantly more difficult than the problems in class and my professor could not always solve them.
Course highlights:
This course was one of those courses that tests your ability to teach yourself a topic. Even though, I sat front row in lecture 3 times a week, the teaching of the material was not the best. Thankfully, I had taken a Calculus course in high school previously, so it was not too bad. My gains from the course really came from doing practice problems over and over again, and talking to my TA. It also helps to do practice problems with people around you because they can pick out the mistakes in your mathematical process you do not always see.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Use the textbook, and learn the methods they teach in the book. Going online complicates things.
