Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
As an engineer, Calculus is critical to success. In gives you the tools to make calculations for designs.
Course highlights:
Derivatives are a major aspect in this course. They allow you to find the slope, calculate critical points, etc. Also another major aspect is integrals. Integrals are most important to me in designing because they allow you to find the area under a curve.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Preparing for this course, it is important to have a strong background in algebra and trigonometry. This course was not insanely difficult, but it definitely was not easy. Take advantage of office hours and tutoring sessions early.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
He is efficient it what he is teaching in class. The class is a bit long, but it is long for a reason and he makes sure that you understand certain things about the information. He really focuses on the actual information we need to know. He makes sure that we get plenty of practice. He could give more practice problems and give us more time to do them, but he by far, has really focused on teaching us the information then telling us the information.
Course highlights:
I learned plenty of things as I was in the course. Integrals and differentiation grew on me and I got the grasp of derivatives iron clad at this point. I really enjoyed this professor and class.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Makes sure to show up to class everyday, he counts attends as a very important grade. When he repeats himself, make sure to right down everything that he repeats. He has a bit of an accent, but if you are paying attention, you will be alright.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I recommend it for anyone wanting to learn a higher math, and getting a different take on how to use math.
Course highlights:
My favorite part was the rate of change and taking derivatives and integrals to convert the formula for (lets say) the velocity of an object and turning it into the formula for its acceleration at a given time or the distance its traveled at a given time.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
work hard and be determined even if the course kicks your but at first, but don't let it consume your life. Mastering Calculus is a marathon not a sprint so it will take time and patience.
