Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Professor Chui does a very good job with her explanations, and her enthusiasm always keeps you awake and interested.
Course highlights:
At first, we learned a few different methods of integrating, such as integration by part and trig substitution. Then, for the bulk of the course, we learn about sequences and series and whether or not they converge or diverge. We finished it off with finding the area or volume of functions that were revolved around particular lines.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure to attend class and do the homework. Those points really add up.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course to both those who love calculus, and those who just need it as a requirement. The class is challenging, but definitely not impossible, and with such an amazing professor as Chui, it's hard to not get a good grade.
Course highlights:
I learned that every point counts. ALWAYS do the WebAssign homework and get the easy A, and never slack on doing the Now You Try It (NYTI) problems in the lecture packets. Not only does every point count, but so does every practice problem you do. The more problems you do, the more chances you have to mess up and catch mistakes before the exam. There are no exam drops or curves so, seriously, study! As far as highlights of the course, you go over calc I for the first few weeks, then delve into more complex integration, followed by what's considered the "hardest" part of calc II which is series and sequences, and then you hit the most significant topic for STEM majors: Taylor series.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Necessary for Success - Do the WebAssign - Show up to class (attendance is graded through clicker questions) - Study and PRACTICE - Form study groups (try teaching each other the material) - Memorize your unit circle (yes, you still need it) & your derivatives/integrals because there is no formula sheet for the exam Tips & Tricks - Set a designated time each day for calc II - Start studying right after the first lecture (seriously, you'll thank me later) - You can never practice too much - Go to office hours (it's literally a whole block of time dedicated to asking those questions you were too scared to ask in class... take advantage of it) - Don't get discouraged by bad grades, they happen. Just learn from it, and do better next time.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
During the summer this course is taught solely by TAs and the structure is much more different and harder than in comparison to the Fall/Spring semesters.
Course highlights:
I did learn the basics of Calc 2, but my TA was not conducive towards my learning style
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Study Edge, going to class, and doing the homework. Participation is key.
