    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I took the engineering section of Calc 1 (why is that not an option in the course selection?), and it was a disaster with this professor. He was a cool guy, but he was loft and would often go off on tangents. I had to go into overdrive to understand the material on my own.

    Course highlights:

    It's very, very application based. After all , that's what engineering is all about. Be prepared for that.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need a solid work ethic and a good professor. Go to office hours. Study and do home work with friends. You'll fail trying to get through this course alone.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone who needs a math credit. Although it may take some studying if you aren't up to par with calculus skills or trig skills. However, Professor Toth will make you work and is willing to help.

    Course highlights:

    This course set me up perfectly for my next level calculus course. Professor Toth was a funny woman and she really made the class enjoyable.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take the class too lightly, because it will require effort, but don't stress at the same time. If you ever need help in the class, there is always someone who is willing to help.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Sealey truly cares about the success of her students, and even if someone isn't personally feeling confident enough to ask for help, she's able to notice when someone needs help and gives it to them.

    Course highlights:

    I learned what limits and derivatives mean in a practical sense, which is very helpful when thinking about how things change. That makes sense though considering how much of calculus is a math about changes.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all the homework, and not just the required load. Also do not invest in Chegg or WolframAlpha because using them can create an over reliance on wanting the answer instead of learning the process.
