    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The instructor is excellent in relaying concepts about Calculus to her students. She clearly explains things and pushes students to succeed with positive re-enforcement. Which in college, is well needed. She takes time for her students to learn something and is readily available in office hours. The instructor also answers emails promptly, and is willing to help students in every aspect possible. She clearly explains this topic as said before, and pushes for group collaboration in each topic. She also pushes for hand written work, which in Calculus, is a necessary evil one must over look. In a course, such as Calculus, the Instructor really makes the course. I highly recommend this course with this instructor to anyone.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned many things while being a student in this course, both educational and helpful. In regards to education, I have learned about limits, there applications, and how they translate into derivatives. I have also learned rate of change, and how to integrate and evaluate said integral. Helpful aspects I have learned in this course, sometimes instructors make or break the course, your past does not have to define your future, and you are not alone. Sometimes it concepts outside of the material covered in the course are just as valuable as concepts learned within the course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Practice makes perfect. Calculus requires a concept to be understood, not memorized. All problems have different variables and some even are presented in different formats. It is imperative that students in this course understand the concept behind the problem. Otherwise their efforts are in vain. Memorizing formulas does help but after practicing problems repeatedly, they become old habit.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Great teacher who showed she cared about your education but also made it difficult enough that you were forced to understand the material.

    Course highlights:

    The teacher was the greatest aspect. Also, starting off not knowing what a derivative was, to solving all sorts of derivatives, antiderivative, indefinite integrals, was so great to see the accomplishment.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class! Very important to do your homework and any review assignments she gives you.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the teacher was amazing. She was very patient h=in helping the student learn and understand the concept. She thoroughly explained the ideas and reasons behind what you learned. She was hard enough that you gained knowledge, but always there if you needed the help.

    Course highlights:

    I actually learned a lot more in this math course than any other course I've taken. I was able to retain the information that was given and able to apply it further on. We learned a lot about derivatives, integration, related rates, graphs, functions, concavity, extrema...etc.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of your homework and really attempt it. She gives great feedback and will be willing to help with the homework if you've tried. Take good notes and pay attention in class, it helps a lot.
