This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Multivariable Calculus is incredibly complex. There are a great deal of formulas to keep straight, and application is even more difficult. For these reasons, I think it's important to have a teacher that keeps the material as simple and straightforward as possible. Henri Roesch, currently a graduate student, would spend most of class time running through complicated proofs that were not necessary to our ability to apply formulas or ideas. Many of the sorts of problems that we saw on tests we had never even addressed in class.
Course highlights:
I did not learn a lot from this class due to poor teaching and poor class structure. What I did learn, I learned from homework problems. The homework problems are fairly straightforward and good practice for tests.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
When selecting classes, try to get Clark Bray. He is by far the most qualified/sought after professor of Multi. Make sure to keep up with homework. For the final, go through as many of Clark Bray's practice tests as possible because he typically writes the finals.
