    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class takes a lot of practice especially if math is not your strong suit and if you do not catch onto the material as fast. The good thing is that his lectures come straight from the textbook so their is no worrying about where he gets his information.

    Course highlights:

    Precalc is a prerequisite for calculus 1. I highly recommend taking precalc to help jog your memory if you are a little rusty on your algebra and trigonometry. This class will prepare you for what lies ahead in calculus 1.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take advantage of the resources offered to you such as professor office hours and learning assistant office hours.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    He is a very intelligent professor and knows what he's doing but he thinks or expects somehow that all his students are around his level in math. He focuses on theorems and proofs to prove certain problems but everyone gets lost and he doesn't really help us when we ask questions by responding that we should know this or that this is basic pre-calc.

    Course highlights:

    The study guide is really helpful to how to pass an exam because they are very similar to it. In the week before an exam he goes over the study guide almost problem by problem which helps because he then explains how to do the problems

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Unless you really know what you're doing and all you need is a professor who expects you to know everything already then don't take this course.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    As a senior, Rebecca Gilbert is the absolute worst professor I have ever had. Exam averages were around 50%, she does not give solutions to worksheets/practice exams, and the final was so brutal. I studied 20-30 hrs for each exam, 70 hours for the final, and still finished with a D. Save yourself and take this course with any other professor.

    Course highlights:

    She was great at teaching the theoretical proofs of theorems, but my friends in higher calculus courses said the proofs are rarely if ever used.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not take this course with this professor! She is the absolute worst. Take any other professor and you will be better off. If you struggle with this course there is a great youtube channel called ProfessorLeonard that does a great job of explaining Calculus 1-3.
