This class was tough.
Course Overview:
For me personally, the teaching style wasn't a good fit. The professor was the type to more talk at you than anything else. Some people are good with just listening to a professor speak then going home and figuring it out on their own, but not me.
Course highlights:
The course is a requirement for math majors, but it is one of those things where the professor really matters if you want to succeed, depending on the type of learner you are. Calc 2 covers Riemann sums, Partial Sums, Infinite Series, Convergence and Divergence testing, Taylor and McLaurin Series, and I believe Polar graphs.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Go to all the lectures and do all the homework. Utilize free tutoring on campus. Good luck.

Course Overview:
Gal is a decent teacher--he provides explanations as best as he can and he tries not to waste time during his class. He is to the point, and he is friendly during office hours.
Course highlights:
His pessimism is very amusing--he is upfront in saying that the majority of people won't pass. "But good luck, anyway" he adds after, as if he hasn't crushed your spirits entirely.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Practice everything. Did you finish the homework? Do it again. Do the practice problems twice over. Go onto Paul's Notes and do those practice problems, too. Practice to the point where you can do these problems in your sleep. Take easier courses alongside this one so you don't drown in math.

Course Overview:
Storfer is a thorough lecturer, a Calculus savant. I could not imagine grasping as much knowledge of Calculus until taking his class. The content is tough, but his teaching method makes it seem so elementary. His corny humor also provides a relief when one is stressed out with the class content.
Course highlights:
The jokes! They definitely helped relieve stress during class. I learned series from top to bottom as well as integral calculus.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Study using the homework he assigns. You'll be glad you did. You'll also be glad you took his course.
