    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    He is a great teacher, who does his best to make sure that his students understand the material that needs to be known. He has office hours if anyone needs to see him if they have questions and also has a practice day every Thursday for the students to figure out problems out by themselves and then ask him questions individually before showing how to solve it at the end of the class period.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course is that I was able to learn Calculus well even though I had never taken the subject before.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you are able to put the effort in to learning the subject because no matter what teacher you get it will be the same things that you will be learning.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is all about derivatives and an introduction to antiderivatives. I would recommend people taking this course if they already have a background in calculus from high school because his quizzes and tests are easy as long as you do your homework. I would not recommend this course to people who do not have a background in calculus because he explains really fast, but he answers straightforward to your questions.

    Course highlights:

    One highlight of this course is that I got to learn and understand the things I did not really understand in high school more thoroughly. I also learned some proofs which we covered in high school but did not really understand too well.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not slack on the homework although there is no due date because you will regret it when you have to do all of them for quizzes and tests.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is great because it is the beginning of calculus! It is the prerequisite for most of the math classes you will need later. This course is also required for calculus based physics courses.

    Course highlights:

    We learned the basics of calculus, how to do derivatives and very basic integrals as well as the fundamental theorem of calculus. We also learned how to apply derivatives and integrals to real life situations such as optimizing space, and rates of change.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Even the course is not very difficult don't let yourself get behind at all because each new lesson builds on the older ones, and you understanding of the new concepts can be dependent on the earlier ones. The course as a whole is very important and fundamental to future calculus courses as well.
