Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This class is essentially the foundation for just about any math sequence you'll take in college. Here you acquire skills necessary for exceeding in higher level math courses
Course highlights:
This was a really great intro course. First portion of the class is a review over Pre-Calculus. You then delve into basic fundamentals for working with derivatives.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Use the resources available at Georgia Tech. Tutoring, study groups, and even talking to your professor can go a long way.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course if you are okay with dealing with a professor that is a little awkward. Over all he has your best performance in mind.

Advice for students:
Be prepared to study and talk to TA's, they really help. Also have access to whiteboards and a video camera or laptop webcam.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Calc 1 is a great foundation course. IT is much harder in the fall than in the spring. I was a TA for this course for 3 years and found that the fall semester had a lot of students that took AP Calc in high school while second semester was taught much slower.
Course highlights:
We covered derivatives and integrals from AP Calc, but did add on material at the end that was new to students. We looked at summations, integration by parts, partial fractions, trig sub, and other integration techniques.
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
Good for fundamentals but for a beginner student I would strongly advise waiting until the spring semester.
