Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because it allows you to enhance your critical thinking. Non-Mathematics majors usually suggest that this course is irrelevant but it is definitely not. It gives the student (you) an opportunity to seek understanding not only in math but in life as well.
Course highlights:
The professor assisted us in learning this course. He related everything to life, which gave us (the students) the ability to succeed in this course.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
I would tell the students to not just rely on class time but to take homework, PowerPoints, or notes seriously. When students go home or have leisure time, they should practice problems or examples over and over again to properly understand the material.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Dr Avart is a really good professor, and he is very willing to help. Do all of the homework on time and you are likely to do well, unless maybe you are someone who struggles a lot with math.
Course highlights:
We learned how to solve various types of calculus problems. We took derivatives, solved integrals, and things like that.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Try doing the homework and study guide questions yourself. Then, if you are still struggling with some of the problems, take them to the GSU math tutoring lab or your professor's office hours. Depending on the teacher, you are likely to see the same questions again on tests.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I gained an in-depth conceptual understanding of Calculus, instead of just learning how to complete the work for the sake of getting by. This class provided a solid foundation for Calculus II and III.
Course highlights:
The class is essentially broken down into three distinct units. The first unit covers limits. This provides the knowledge essential for the second unit, which is all about derivatives. This is a fascinating topic and deals with the instantaneous rate of change, which has application in countless fields. Lastly, the third unit focuses on integrals. Integrals are all about "finding the area under the curve", which has application in many other subjects, including physics and probability.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
My advice is to seek a conceptual understanding in this course. If you can understand "why", you'll find a much greater enjoyment of the material. Also, make sure to set up a very organized schedule of study, so that you can stay on top of things!
