This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would highly recommend this course especially for my fellow engineers out there. Dr. Howard was not only incredibly thorough in his explanations of the course material he was also incredibly funny which made getting through a boring math class all that much better .
Course highlights:
From this course you learn all about Integrals and derivative as well as finding the volume and area of shapes in a graph
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
DO THE WEBASSIGN AHEAD OF TIME. that's literally it
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This class is a general education requirement at Mercer, so I would recommend it to anybody that has a) taken Calculus before or b) needs it as a pre-req for their major. Dr. Lu's class functions almost entirely on lectures. There is a textbook listed for the class, but I have used it maybe twice in the semester. If you go to class, listen to the lecture, and take notes, you will do well in his class. The only resource truly necessary to purchase is the WebAssign access because that is where homework is assigned. Overall, this was a good class; I didn't need a calculator in class and the lectures taught me what I needed to know for the tests.
Course highlights:
This course covers limits, derivatives, applications of derivatives, integrals, applications of integrals, and the fundamental theorem of calculus.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Do not be afraid of this class. As long as you pay attention and take notes, you will know everything for the test. Textbook and calculator not required. Plus go to the preceptor sessions. Those will help for concepts you need a little more help with.
This class was tough.

I learned everything from beginner math all the way through to calc 1. He makes sure you know your stuff. I am in calc 2 and it is a breeze because i have calc 1 so well.
Hours per week:
