    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    With Professor Hristova, HIGHLY RECOMMEND taking calculus with her because she explains everything to the best of her ability, she takes the easier route (not always the textbook route), and she goes at the students' pace so we don't feel overwhelmed.

    Course highlights:

    By taking this course, I learned a lot. Usually professors dive right into calculus concepts like derivatives and such, but Professor Hristova took the time to review some pre-calc concepts to make sure that the students know everything, are comfortable with everything. She really is dedicated to teaching her students the best way to remember things about math; I really believe she succeeds.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you're good with math, then this course will be easy for you. If you're not good at math, take this course with Professor Hristova if you can. Because to succeed, she will do all of the work. She assigns homework (not too much, just enough to reinforce the lecture material) that you're pretty much able to do on your own. Even if you can't do it on your own, she is more than willing to help you out to figure the problem out. If you pay attention in class, take good notes, review those notes before quizzes and exams, and you're good. Before the exams, make sure to do the study guide that she gives you and you're good. If you want to go the extra mile to ensure that you'll do well in class, go through the practice problems in the book and those will more than likely be on the quizzes. Honestly, she will do her best to make you succeed. If you do your part, than you'll be fine.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is a requirement for many other classes and it helps to have a good basis going into more challenging courses. I was involved in a program called supplemental instruction. This meant that I met for an additional class period every week. This was great for my understanding because I had more time to talk with the professor and it was easier to ask questions.

    Course highlights:

    One highlight of this course was the professor. She was very helpful and made learning the material enjoyable. Although the class was difficult, she used applicable examples.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students looking to take this course to understand that it will take a lot of time. I took Calc 1 in high school so I thought it would be easier. But Calculus is a very hard subject that requires time and effort to understand.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Calc 1 at the University of Michigan is awful. It's a weed out course, and horrible if you haven't taken AP calc before. Take calc in high school or during the summer or at a community college! Learn from my mistakes.

    Course highlights:

    Nothing. It was a blur. They don't teach calculus like many other universities (theory based) so it's hard to grasp and remember exactly what you've learned. All of my other friends at other universities thought it was crazy.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Study a lot. Go to the math centers at least 5 hours a week (for team homework as well) and put effort into the course. Find a smart friend to tutor you. Don't expect to ace the class by any means.
