This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would not recommend this course because th e topics are very complicated and the teacher was all over the place so that did not help.
Course highlights:
This course helped me learn and memorize integrals and derivatives because there are so many ways to find solutions.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Do the homework. This was the only thing that made me semi-understand it.
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
The teacher is phenomenal and makes the class a great experience. Calc III is an amazing class that takes the concepts you learned from Calc I-II and applies them to the 3-D world around us. Taking it with a poorly trained professor can diminish this experience, so taking it with Hacker is a must.
Course highlights:
The biggest part to take home from this course, is the way it eases you into becoming fluent in vectors. A lot of math and physics exists in vector space and you need to become comfortable with that. This course will do that.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Personally I feel the class was taught well enough that not a lot of out of class time was needed. However if you need help you can go to his website and browse through his vast collection of Primers/Sample tests/Lecture Notes. Very Helpful.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because the instructor not only teaches the traditional methods, but also demonstrates more efficient methods.
Course highlights:
I have learned the importance of not mechanically performing a mathematical procedure, but taking a moment to understand which method of approach requires the fewest steps. This made it easier for me to avoid making mistakes.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Practice each method until it feels like muscle memory (consider how easy arithmetic and even Algebra seem at this level). Then consider how else to achieve the same goal using the geometry of the region or Trig identities.
