    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you didn't take Calculus in high school, start now! It's difficult, but manageable!

    Course highlights:

    I learned about rational expressions and other material you learn in precalculus.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Enjoy it, but work hard. Math doesn't come easy unless you're a genius ha! Anyways, it's interesting and it can be fun if you work hard and understand it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    From the minute I stepped into this classroom, I knew it would be worth my while. Numerous things instantly stood out to me, allowing me to embrace how beneficial this course will be for me. Some of the things that allowed me to feel so confidently, is how comfortable and welcoming the classroom was arranged. The greeting given by the professor was humbling and inviting. He began telling us a little bit about himself which most professors are known for, however within the two minutes he spoke, he made several references whether it be to his schooling or prior teaching experience. Given that information, we all as a class could understand just how qualified and passionate he was to be able to teach us. As a student, that positive energy rubbed off onto us and made us collectively eager and inspired to learn from him. Essentially, our hypothesis behind his knowledge and wisdom, was factual, and I have learned more about calculus and math as a whole in one semester than I have all of my prior years of education.

    Course highlights:

    What I can genuinely say I'm the most proud of in walking away from this class, is the retention I was able to practice and apply. A lot of times math is considered difficult, due to all of the formulas and steps required to solve a single problem. Many people struggle with this concept, and resort to temporary memorization, to get by. Although, that may work occasionally, I believe that memorizing a formula for one quiz, will not help in the long-run. By learning the origin of where the formulas derive, I was able to resort to retaining the information and not just memorizing it, therefor making this class very successful for myself and many others.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice I was ever given, was to always look back over your notes the same day that you take them. It seems repetitive and unnecessary, however it genuinely does help with retention. I suggest and follow the idea of taking notes in a particular class, math specifically, and then re-reading what you have achieved later that night, maybe even before bed. It has helped tremendously since it involves reviewing and analyzing the notes while they are still somewhat fresh in your mind.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Crona can be somewhat confusing at times when explaining certain concepts in Calculus, but overall she cares very much about seeing her students succeed and is more helpful in office hours if you have an concerns about the course or are struggling with a concept.

    Course highlights:

    Since I took Calculus in high school, this course was a great refresher in all the concepts I learned previously, and I even found that I understood them even better when going through the concepts in Professor Crona's class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to do a lot of work and practice on your own. Any concepts you feel you need work on, you are the only one who can hold yourself responsible, no one will be there to walk you through the concepts you need to go over, especially because she will almost never check or collect homework assigned.
