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.
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.
