    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Excellent lectures, in class examples, word problems, and quizes, all designed to help you solve differential equations.

    Course highlights:

    First and second order differential equations ( homogenous and nonhomogenous). Different techniques to solve and graph them. Real word problems to apply the teachings of the course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Homework, Homework, Homework. And also sample exams adn quizes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Wanner is an amazing professor and he seems extremely knowledgeable of the material. I've had him for two semesters and both semesters I have learned a ton.

    Course highlights:

    We learn about how to solve first order differential equations, exact equations, and second order differential equations and how to determine their fundamental set of solutions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you really understand Calc 3 and if you can take Linear Algebra it helps because the majority of the class refers to Linear Algebra concepts.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't recommend it because I found the professor's teaching to be minimal and not very helpful. Once I started teaching myself by reading the book and doing the problems my grades greatly improved.

    Course highlights:

    Calc 3 is a lot more of the applications of how to use what we've learned in the previous two classes. It also tied into a lot of what I was learning in physics, which proved to be beneficial. Lastly, this isn't exactly specific to this course, but I learned that going to lectures and paying attention/ taking notes was not enough for me to succeed in the class and that I had to do a lot of teaching myself and practice problems to see the results I wanted.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely buy the book and actually read it. It makes a lot more sense when you see the examples and understand all the definitions and theorems. However, there are a few sections in which the book poorly explains the material so for these sections I highly recommend going to your TA or looking up videos on YouTube to help supplement the lectures.
