    Join or create a study group for student support and to help answer questions in a different way then the instructor may have answer.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Goodykoontz is a very thorough instructor. This course helps the lay the foundation for calculus at a reasonable pace. The exams were based alot off of the notes, which was helpful.

    Course highlights:

    I felt that I gained a good understanding of the calculus fundamentals. I learned how to take a variety of different derivatives which is crucial in calculus.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The textbook isn't super necessary. If you copy what the professor writes on the board, pay attention in class, and study the notes (which includes various example problems) you should do fine on exams. There are also review sessions before exams which provide extra exposure to material.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I have shadowed a class and would highly recommend it. Professor Bryd was extremely proffesional. However since I have not actually attend this class I don't know how to answer this.

    Course highlights:

    I learned through a hands on experience how to use my calculus skills to help in a job. Even if calculus was taken However since I have not actually attend this class I don't know how to answer this.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would consider setting up a study group with other classmates. Allowing your self too bounce questions off each other allows you to learn with your fellow students. If more help is needed, tutors are available.
