This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course for a few reasons. One, it is a great continuation of Calculus after taking Calculus I. Two, Professor Green is an amazing professor! He explains homework examples in class by request, gives you a practice test to work out on your own and provides an example key, and he is one of the kindest professors I have come in contact with. He begins each class with an encouraging devotional, which is a relaxing and encouraging start to the day. Overall, I had a fulfilling experience in his class and highly recommend it to others.
Course highlights:
The highlight of this course included the practice exams provided a few days before the test. Professor Green would give the students a practice test, example key, and a youtube instructional video on how to do the practice exam. He always suggested to work out the exam on your own before looking at the key or video, which was very similar to taking the actual exam. These tools were immensely helpful. Another highlight was when Professor Green would offer extra help in class with homework problems that we were struggling with. He would write down equations on the board to help get us back on track.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
When thinking about taking this course, take it with Green. He will be the most useful and helpful professor at this school to take this course with. Yes, the material is still difficult, but he is willing to help you get through it every step of the way.

Course Overview:
Dr. Hathaway is an incredible professor that will go above and beyond to teach an incredibly difficult subject.
Course highlights:
This course is an extension of Calculus 1, but instead of focusing on derivatives, the focus is on integrals. It is the most difficult calculus course, but incredibly important for any mathematics you may take moving forward.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Do not get into the habit of doing your homework late. Homework is assigned almost every day; it will build up quickly. Stay on top of things!
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I really like calculus, so obviously Calculus II was the bomb. Dr. Lyle is an awesome prof., and usually has study sessions the night before exams. Bonus: he brings snacks. Also, you usually get 2 days for each homework assignment.
Course highlights:
Basically, you learn about 1 million techniques for integration. Tied into that is sequences and series, which can also be used for integration in a sort of roundabout way. It challenges your brain, but its cool stuff so the challenge is worth it, in my opinion.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure you have a good grasp on Calculus I. Also, study with a whiteboard. I don't know why, but my test grades spiked when I started doing practice problems for the exams on a whiteboard. Also, don't be afraid to ask for help. Spending an hour on one problem getting nowhere is not worth it!
