This class was tough.
Course Overview:
As an honors course, the professor teaching the class will most likely be very good, which is not guaranteed in the non honors calculus courses. The class was very difficult, but a hefty curve helps out a bit. An A is still not easy however since you'll be competing with some of the best math students at the University.
Course highlights:
A more thorough understanding of calculus beyond simple numerical calculations and robotically applying differentiation rules. The course is proof based and though there are sometimes "normal calculus" problems on exams such as related rates, evaluating limits, etc the homework is primarily proofs and there are always a few bigger proofs on exams. The class doesn't assume prior knowledge of proofs so it also serves as a good introduction to proofs that math majors will be seeing in higher level courses from linear algebra onwards.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
Be very good at math. Do all of the required reading, go to office hours, and always be practicing proofs. If you aren't assured to be in the top 20% of the class to get an A, try to find a study buddy who is.
