This class was tough.
Course Overview:
It is the basis for a various of real world applications and other upper level classes.
Course highlights:
The highlight would be learning derivatives and integration. These are two key concepts that appear in so many classes.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Take really good notes, try Khan Academy and practice problems repeatedly.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I personally wouldn't take his class due to the fact that he expects too much of his students especially on such a difficult course that needs to be taught carefully
Course highlights:
I personally didn't learn anything except derivatives. I felt that my friends and tutors taught me more than the teacher. The highlight of this class was for me was when I dropped it.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Study as much as you can if you have him! His quizzes are stupid hard because he wants everything in a certain manner, and seems to change his mind.

Course Overview:
For students who major in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and even business, many colleges require Calculus and look for it on high school transcripts. Even without Calculus, many colleges expect to see four years of high school math. It is important to get a good foundation before entering college.
Course highlights:
I have a love/hate relationship with calculus: it demonstrates the beauty of math and the agony of math education. Calculus relates topics in an elegant, brain-bending manner. My closest analogy is Darwin’s Theory of Evolution: once understood, you start seeing Nature in terms of survival. You understand why drugs lead to resistant germs (survival of the fittest). You know why sugar and fat taste sweet (encourage consumption of high-calorie foods in times of scarcity). It all fits together.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
You will need to spend time studying. Take great notes and ask lots of questions. Keep at it until you understand the foundation of calculus.
