Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Mr. Desai not only teaches the concept, but also teaches why the concept is important and how it was derived. He makes sure that we don't blindly memorize mathematics formulas, but rather understand it thoroughly, so that even if we forget, we can derive an understanding again, because memorization is temporary, but understanding is eternal. He inspires me to do better each day and teaches extremely well. I've learned not only mathematics in his class, but also how to be a better student as a whole. I love his class and am grateful to have him as my teacher.
Course highlights:
I learned not only calculus formulas, but also how to derive them. But, even more than that, I learned how to study and work hard towards a passion from this class.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Work hard, do the homework, and study well for the quizzes.
