    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Although Calculus is not an easy class by nature, it can definitely be made more difficult than it needs to be by the instructor and the student! It may seem crazy to take this particular course online but I highly recommend it as such. For people like me who work full or part time and have other things that make demands on your time, an online class is flexible and doable. I recommend dedicating AT LEAST 5 hours per week to this course (preferably 10 to ensure an A) and that you complete ALL of the homework. For my professor in particular, the homework adequately prepared me for the quizzes and the quizzes were exact representations of the tests. Also, I recommend making a habit of writing ALL of the formulas and charts (unit circle or special right triangles) that you've used thus far throughout the course, as you begin each homework assignment. In calculus, each new chapter builds on the previous so failure to have the formulas memorized and material understood will have catastrophic consequences.

    Course highlights:

    Differentiation and integration are not only fun (I know it's hard to imagine that math is fun) but can be directly applied to day to day life. Unlike with some portions of algebra where it seems as if you're simply working out mindless equations, calculus utilizes those seemingly mindless equations and formulas and applies them so as to interpret and understand the world through mathematics.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The Professor makes sure she teaches everything that will be on the test, she is also very available for her student. I would take all my math classes with her if I could.

    Course highlights:

    Test were similar to Homework. Easy to understand.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study the homework and quizzes, they are vital to your success in taking the test.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend Dr. Schiff's class, because even though the work can be difficult and tedious, I truly learned Calculus through working with her.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the theories behind different parts of calculus, which was always helpful on quizzes and exams, because I could always find a way to derive what I needed.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I would give students taking this course is to be sure to do the recommended practice problems even though the are not always mandatory, because they will certainly show up on the tests.
