    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Yes, I loved Professor Arrigotti. He was a great math teacher, and a really great person.

    Course highlights:

    At the end of the course, I didn't realize how much I had actually had learned. I am retaking the course for a higher grade this semester, and I am flying through it!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    ALWAYS do your homework. It's a huge part of your grade.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Honestly, Professor Downs is an amazing teacher and even though I'm not super fond of math, he gives you multiple ways to make up for that. Just getting your assignments done helps you maintain a good grade and whenever you need help, he's right there to show you how it's done.

    Course highlights:

    The best thing I gained from Calculus isn't so much my math skills, but the ability to manage my time, organize my assignments, and learn how to better study for final exams. It also helped me really feel like I can take on a number of challenges in life, since I could handle Calculus.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not fall behind. Even though chapter assignments are due every two weeks, do not leave all the assignments for that week. Try doing at least two or three per week so you're not overwhelmed the day you have to turn it in.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course because the professor is very precise when giving feedback and will take the time to answer questions on the homework. Although it was not an "easy A," if a student does their work and attends the classes, an A should be attainable. The professor was also very organized and punctual.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was the online homework. Although I had never completed math homework online prior to taking this class, I completed it with little to no problems. The professor also took the time to explain the online textbook and homework. This was a highlight because it taught me how to use such materials. I can now say that I have experience with that program and type of homework.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The greatest advice that I could offer to a student taking this course would be to attend the lectures. If a student does not attend the lecture, the could miss out on valuable information and will have no notes on the section. As a new section is begun every class, I highly recommend studying any notes you took either the day or the day after you took those notes.
