A Few Big Assignments
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Gregory Scible is one of the best professors I've ever had.
Course highlights:
I learned the importance of practicing to remember and understand different methods of integration.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Practice the homework until you do not need any help with it.

Course Overview:
Calculus 2 is already known to be a very demanding course. So might as well learn it from a guy who knows how to teach it well! He will tackle the hardest problems with you in class, always makes time for questions in the beginning of class and on top of that he is a fair grader. If you put the work in, you can easily come out of this course with an A.
Course highlights:
I learned A LOT about integration. Calculus 2 provides the tools (such as integrating and the many strategies to do so) that will be needed for calculus 3 and even differential equations. Also understanding limits in further detail and when a particular limit converges or diverges is necessary to continue on in higher math courses.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Do all of the homework throughout the week. Don't save it all till the night before its do because this class has a lot of material and this strategy will help you remember all the work. Be prepared to give an hour a day to this class.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Probably not a popular idea among many, but math is fantastic, especially Calculus. It's properties of our world and universe in written form!
Course highlights:
The thing that always gets me is the derivations of position vs time gives you velocity and acceleration (and even 'jerk'). But the thing most specific to this course was that any function can be represented as a series and how to go from one to the other.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Do practice problems and go to lecture. Nothing beats hands on experience.
