Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
While the subject material is not always easy to understand, he does drop the lowest exam score. His office hours are extremely helpful, and he pushes you to learn the material.
Course highlights:
Derivatives were one of the easier topics in the course. It helped learning the product and quotient rules as well as the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Definitely take the time to study the material. By doing so, it helps you grasp the topic better, but it also allows for a better class experience. Dr. Hartfield likes for his students to be prepared.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
While I am not the most proficient student in any maths course, I found that Professor Lu is one of the best math professors I have had. He allows many opportunities to raise your grade; not necessarily with extra credit but through daily quizzes (which are easy if you pay attention) and Webassigns. He is exceptionally nice and will give it to you straight no matter what. I always enjoyed visiting him during office hours because he genuinely enjoys discussing Calculus and he loves his students. I would recommend taking this course even if you aren't the best in math, so long as you are willing to put in the work.
Course highlights:
Optimization was difficult but interesting to learn about; however, it is only second to integration which I loved!
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Study hard! Look over your notes after class every day and get help from friends, the ARC or go to his office hours. If you're struggling, tell him and he will work with you.
