This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This course was unique. Keck is, one of those teachers that tries to motivate, but won't carry you. He's spontaneous, and likes to discuss the concept behind each action, to deepen the understanding of Calculus as a whole. For a math lover, this class is great. However, beware to the gliders, for there is a storm.
Course highlights:
My favorite moments in this class were connecting the dots between two subjects. The topics Optimization and Related Rates, in my opinion, were just as fascinating as they were difficult - and that's saying something.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
To anyone who wants to take this course, I recommend: Doing your assigned homework that night. - Don't procrastinate. Get help if you don't understand a topic. - Keck lives in his classroom (I'm not exaggerating) Go to every meeting. - Their worth it. Make sure you call the class "Keckulus" - It doesn't get old.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I highly recommend this course to anyone who is going into any engineering or STEM field. It is extremely helpful to spend a whole year on Calc 1 in order to make sure that you truly understand the material and am ready to move to the next step.
Course highlights:
I learned the basics of Calculus, which is what you would expect from the course. But I feel that I achieved a much deeper understanding of material than I would have if I had taken it in college. I was able to get help anytime and the pace of the class was much more manageable for the speed at which we went through material.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Keep up on your homework, and study, a lot. Make sure you have mastered the material in each section so that you don't get lost in the sometimes fast paced learning environment.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This course creates a very strong understanding of not only calculus but previous math concepts as well. It pushes you to work hard and enforces great study habits that become really helpful in the future.
Course highlights:
We did several projects and in depth writing assignments that really solidify understanding. We covered limits, derivatives and integrals as well as both fundamental theorems of calculus.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Keep up with the homework assignments. Even though they aren't regularly checked, they help you to get in practice and not be lost the next day in class.
