This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course to students that have a calculus background. It is very face paced, but very informative and fun if you enjoy complicated math problems.
Course highlights:
This course helped me gain an understanding of calculus, specifically graphing, and has taught me how to do complicated mathematical problems in very small amounts of time.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Personally, I attended the tutoring sessions and found that helpful. I always read textbook chapters and did the recommended textbooks questions.
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
The professor's notes were fairly easy to follow, but they were straight from the textbook.
Course highlights:
The professor seemed passionate about what he was teaching. He was helpful when I went to his office hours.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Definitely take notes during the lectures, and study them. Study for everything, not just the exams. Watch out for the lecture quizzes - each one counts for 5% of your final grade. The only grades you get in this course are quizzes, exams, and homework, so every little thing counts.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I wouldn't recommend this course because you should only take this course if its required for your major. If it's not required take the easier Calc I course.
Course highlights:
We covered all the chapters. Basically, I went into this class a blank slate, having never taken calculus. Now I completed Calc I so I know everything we learn in Calc I.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
The discussion sections can be very valuable if you get a TA that speaks english. If he/she doens't speak english it will be very hard to learn. Lecture is important to go to, so that you get exposed to the material, but don't expect to be able to absorb everything just from lecture. You need to make sure you do all the HW ahead of time to get extra credit.
