Course Overview:
Being the backbone of almost all math and science courses. Calculus is a very important tool especially in engineering. As such, having a professor that delivered the course in such an organized and friendly manner increased my liking towards calculus. This also fortified my understanding of calculus , as well as certain concepts in other courses.
Course highlights:
This course goes more in depth of the practical applications of calculus and how to use the topics that were introduced in high school to a variety of new situations. This course starts off with limits making it`s way into differentiation and how they are applied in real world scenarios. It ends with simple integration problems as a "heads up" of what is to come in Calculus II (MATH 1020U).
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Attend lectures is crucial but don`t stop there, take advantage of tutorials and help sessions that the university offers if needed. However, it is important that you review your lecture notes and try some of the homework questions that are recommended. These questions are notorious for showing up on midterms and finals.
