This class was tough.
Course Overview:
The teacher is always enthusiastic and is an expert on teaching the subject
Course highlights:
I learned complex derivatives, limits, shape of the graph, and Integration.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
Do not despair when it seems hopeless. Just stick it out it gets easier with more practice.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
The instructor is willing to offer help when asked. His lectures in class are coherent and make sense. He also uses class time effectively.
Course highlights:
One of the main things I learnt from this course is to do the practice questions. The more times you practice the better you understand. A highlight for me was finally understanding a subject and how to do the questions.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
I would suggest that they do the homework because it will help them understand to apply it. Another piece of advice is yo write down examples the instructor goes through in class and go over it again alone.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This class is challenging but not too hard, and very interesting. As a math lover I thoroughly enjoyed the material and Professor Zhang is a great and very helpful teacher. As long as you do the homework and study for the tests you will succeed in it.
Course highlights:
One of my favorite parts of this course was learning about applied differentiation and using calculus concepts in real life problems. This made the material really click for me and the problems were challenging and fun.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
Although this is relevant for every class, do the homework! I saw many of my classmates struggling throughout the semester because they were not willing to put in the time to learn the material properly through the practice problems. Don't think that you can skimp on the homework and do well on tests, if you fail the homework, you will fail the tests. Also to not be afraid to get help if you need it. Whether from Professor Zhang or from tutors or just friends who are good at math, never be embarrassed to ask questions.
