Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this class because it will help you in college. As a senior I had a choice to pick this class and I wanted it because I will have to take calculus next year. Even though I'm not getting the credit, I'll still be familiar with most of the concepts and not forget too much. Dr. Walters is a brilliant man himself, he has a very positive vibe and always knows how to get a class excited for math. Walters makes everything easy and joyful and he'll teach you something new everyday (guaranteed :) )
Course highlights:
I learned how to take derivatives, I learned how to solve optimization problems, differentiate trigonometric functions, find the extrema of a function, related rates . The thing about calculus is you technically apply it to real life situations
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
-Always look over your notes every 2-3 days, I'm saying this because you'll get lost and when test day comes, grades won't look too well. - Stay on task, always have your book out for the do now - Walters likes calling people at random so be prepared ( don't worry if your answer is wrong, he doesn't care about that, he likes it if you try) - Have to STUDY for his tests, can't just wing it ( Gives a lot of Tests) ( Tests aren't that hard if you study)
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
It's really fun learning this subject. The reference material is just awesome.
Course highlights:
Inequalities, limits, and limit graphs are something I really loved. This has application in real life and also help in college. Therefore learning it in advance will help you.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
If you want to do engineering, math and/or computer science, you must learn this subject now.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I absolutely hate Calculus and math in general, but Walters is an incredible teacher and he's hilarious.
Course highlights:
I do not recall. The main highlight are the breaks so I don't have to go to class!
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
Don't take calculus. This class requires work, so unless you are prepared to give it your all, don't bother.
