Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Although most seem intimidated by the idea of new math, Calculus can be very interesting and relevant in the real world. As an engineering student, what I learned in this class would continue to show up throughout the rest of my college education, and probably into my future career as well.
Course highlights:
After a review of mathematical functions and graphs, we learned about derivatives and the fundamental theorem of calculus. We set the basis and prepared ourselves for more calculus in the coming semesters.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
It may seem difficult before starting and even sometimes while you are taking the course, but my advice would be to take each concept one at a time and make sure you understand it. If you do that with each concept, the ones that follow will make more sense and be much simpler! Just do not let a mental block stump you because I have seen that with many of my peers. I firmly believe that with the right attitude and work ethic, almost anyone can do well in calculus.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Calculus is a major requirement to almost all Math and science related courses. It also gives one a strong hold on mathematics both pure and applied math. Calculus was also an interesting class of course with its ups and downs just like everything else in life.
Course highlights:
Learnt a lot about limits,differentiation and integration of equations. Also involved graphs and how to estimate the areas of such graphs which involved a lot of calculations but still fun. Detailed information about the graphs included local maxima and local minima . The most interesting topic was on optimization which can help one in their day to day lives.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Just pay attention in class and also put a lot of emphasis on the formula and the small details taught in class. Doing more than 20 hours of work per week and other school work I was taking last semester, I didn't have enough time on calculus but because I never missed a class always did my best I was able to attain an A. Most important of all, be ready to work, believe in your abilities and emancipate yourself from mental slavery that math is hard.Also I didn't do pre-calculus or college algebra to save costs which made it hard but not impossible .
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
The professor cancelled class a lot so our section was way behind the other sections.
Course highlights:
If you're willing to put the time in, you can learn a lot of new material that will help you in calc 2.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
My professor was better at explaining things one on one so I had to go to her office hours a lot to get help and allow me to better understand the class.
