This class was tough.
Course Overview:
With a difficult course like Differential Equations, you'd rather have a professor experienced in academia, understanding the situation you are in. With Aaron Yeager, you would have a relatable professor, willing to spend tremendous energy and time to help you fully grasp mathematical concepts introduced in Differential Equations.
Course highlights:
Most memorable aspects of the class were when the course material finally clicked and pieced together after several visits to the professors office hours. Him thoroughly introducing concepts with examples, applications, and theory was truly helpful and made the course more enjoyable. Professor Yeager taught me the basics also, telling me to understand and excel in mathematics, you have to learn the basics, entirely. I've taken that advice and have applied to many of my other courses and would recommend most to follow suit.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Spend quality time reading the textbook and engaging with classmates to retain the information introduced in this course. Also don't be afraid to ask questions during class because you're not the only one struggling with the concepts of differential equations. Finally, office hours should be cherished and taken advantage of since it'll be your best time effective choice in learning the material. Aaron Yeager is also great company, who makes it enjoyable during office hours.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Easy peasy if you already know what your doing...Else be prepared to study like crazy. No, Calculator allowed, and no equation sheet. No, homework grades, no quiz reviews, no exam reviews, and very little student teacher interaction.
Course highlights:
That you really need to study early and often. If you cant understand the way a professor talks don't assume it will get better-it WONT. Don't be afraid to drop a class and get a different professor.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
If you have some basic understanding of Differential equations than this is an easy class or if you just enjoy teaching yourself. If not you may want to consider a different teacher.
