Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would reommend this course because the professor provides an easy way to understand the basic fundementals of calculus and structures his course in a way that helps you to learn effectively.
Course highlights:
I learned the formal definition of a derivative. I had already understood how to calculate them but never really grasped the concept. During the class the professor demonstrated the concept of a derivative graphically and was able to explain beyond the textbook definition in a way that was easier to understand.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
To do the homework even though it is not required or for a grade, the supplemental homework is very helpful because it provides you a way to practice and better understand the material in a practical mannor.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This course definitely prepares you well for the upcoming calculus courses especially with JD Kim.
Course highlights:
JD makes learning calculus so much easier and fun.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
All you need to do is to practice practice practice. Math is all about practicing until you obtain a grasp of the concepts you are learning.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Calculus I is a mandatory course for everyone seeking an engineering degree. This course will build a strong calculus foundation as the basics will be used in future courses. My professor, Yue Cai, was excellent at delivering lectures and explaining the content and I highly recommend taking her classes.
Course highlights:
We learned how to take limits of different types of functions. We learned how to differentiate different types of functions. We were introduced to Matlab and were asked to solve problems using it.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Solve EACH & EVERY homework problem! NEVER miss a class. Try solving problems yourself before taking help from the board.
