Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because it helps you understand greater problems you will come across in school. It is not only a math class, but it is the beginning of science of what things are and how to find out what they are. It gives you the tools to solve greater problems that you'll face outside the classroom.
Course highlights:
In this course I learned a new way to apply everything I've learned in my math classes. It taught me new ways to look at problems and solve them. It was a challenging class as Calculus should be, but when I asked questions and found helped when I needed it, it became one of my easiest classes. A highlight of this course was the number of chances you had on homework which helped you not only learn from your mistakes, but understand the section more.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
My best advice for this course is to keep on top of mastering each section. Each section builds on the last, and if you don't master one you will quickly fall behind. The best studying tip is to practice your homework problems and problems from the textbook until you feel confident with the section you're working on.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This class is the base for almost every major, so if you're going to take it, make sure you take it with Jesse Levitt. He's a very good teacher and makes you really enjoy calculus. There is a lot of work, but it certainly pays off in the end.
Course highlights:
I thought the best part of this course was the exam reviews. Professor Levitt would make a practice exam for us to take home. Then next class he would allow us to ask questions about that exam to further help us study for the real exam. He really knows his stuff, so I always found clarity during these sessions.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure you know all of the theorems used in this course. There are a lot, but if you spend enough time on it early, it wont be as bad. They were always helpful shortcuts on the homework and exams.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Professor Levitt is a great teacher! He really knows his information and makes a huge effort at getting the students excited about math. He spends a lot of time making sure the students understand all concepts and he puts an emphasis on learning all math jargon.
Course highlights:
I think the best part of this course was the exam review. Professor Levitt would give the students a practice exam to take home to complete. In the next class, he would allow students to ask questions regrading the practice exam. This was always a helpful reinforcement of the information I studied up to that point.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure you know all of the rules and theorems used in this course. There are a lot, and most of them are very simple, so if you spend enough time on it early, it wont be as bad. They always proved to be helpful shortcuts on the homework and exams.
