    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's required for some majors. If it's not required, I only recommend if you love math.

    Course highlights:

    My professor was really good. It was her first time teaching Calc III so I was a little nervous, but she made sure we all got each concept before we moved on to the next.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend getting into a workshop. I was in the workshop for my class and it helped a lot. It sucks sitting in workshop for three hours every week, but it's worth it for quizzes and tests. I ended up forgetting to study certain topics on my own and the only thing that saved me on the quizzes and tests was the extra practice I got in workshop. I think the workshop was the difference between me getting a B and struggling to get a C.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a very challenging course and it takes a lot of time, but you end up learning a lot. As long as you go to office hours and make an effort to learn the material then you will learn the content and feel confident about the material.

    Course highlights:

    We learned a lot about series and sequences. Plus a lot of other information that is somewhat hard to explain. I also learned a lot about polar coordinates and parametric equations.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Have time to spend on it. If you do not have time to put in do not take this course, you will not do well.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't necessarily recommend this course unless you're a complete math geek like me. Professor Richert is a fine teacher although it took me a few weeks to get used to his lecture style. I would recommend taking advantage of his office hours because the one on one instruction really helps.

    Course highlights:

    At first the course seemed like a repeat of Calc 2 because we started off just doing sequences and series and things like that but then we got into parametric equations and motion in 3 space and that was interesting. The biggest part of this course is that you have to prove almost everything that you do, you can't just use some rule you have to explain your reasoning for the rule.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the suggested problems as soon as you leave class and try to read the book as much as possible because it really helps.
