This class was tough.
Course Overview:
The course was very difficult while the teacher helped you on the homework's and seemed to have you get an understanding of the material, you would go and study only to find when you got to a test or quiz that you had not received the grade you wanted. I believe there should've been study guides for the tests.
Course highlights:
I did learn not only how to be able to determine the area between two curves but how to find the derivative and anti derivative of functions along with optimization and related rates.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
In my opinion the class is worth taking but only if your either taken calculus or your prepared to put in enough effort to be able to pull a good grade out of his class. If you aren't prepared to actually learn the material I don't recommend taking his class because the effort needed to pass is a lot.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
You should definitely form a study group ASAP! The professor's methods can be hard to follow at times, so working with your classmates should help.
Course highlights:
The professor does indirectly teach you how to take advantage of materials like textbooks, tutoring, and study groups, but that's about it, in my opinion.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Come to class prepared to take lots of notes because they will be good reference points when studying and reviewing. Get to know your classmates, because they will be your #1 resource!
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend Dr. Cooper for any student that needs to take Calculus. He takes his time explaining to you the proofs of why a certain equation would work for another problem learned in class.
Course highlights:
This highlights of this course for the test practice days where students would come in after hours to Dr. Cooper's classroom to just do random Calculus problems for the textbook on the whiteboard. We would help each other out on the problems some of us did not understand. If none of us understood the problem, then we would ask Dr. Cooper to assist us with the problem at hand.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
You need to be able to do the textbook problems in the homework because they are similar to the problems on the test. If you don't understand a problem, then you should ask a peer in class or ask them during Dr. Cooper's office hours. You should always go to office hours to confirm that you know how to do the problems in the textbook and to make sure you are doing them correctly.
