    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Javor is a great professor, and she's able to transfer her knowledge of calculus to us in an engaging and practical manner. She tries to break up our 80 minute lectures with at least one humorous anecdote or joke, and this practice really helps with focus, even though its not always the funniest. This has been one of the best math courses I've taken in terms of content, and its nice to have all the material from previous courses I've taken be integrated together. That said, she does expect some background knowledge from previous courses (ie trig), but she's more than willing to make herself available outside of class to shore up those concepts. Very helpful, entertaining, and knowledgeable.

    Course highlights:

    I'd say one of the highlights of this course for me was how she explained some things that I hadn't understood in previous math courses. For example, I'd taken radians and the shell method at face value while not understanding why they work the way they do, and when she covered it, she went into depth about the mechanics of the method and what a radian actually is.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the homework. She only assigns relevant problems, and the practice is really helpful.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a very difficult course, and if someone is not going to put in a lot of effort then they most likely are not going to pass. However, I would absolutely recommend this to anyone willing to try and put in the work. The professor is super nice, but he is strict when it comes to homework and tests, he will also tell you that the course is not easy and it takes a lot of work.

    Course highlights:

    The best thing is that the teacher is great. He doesn't take it easy on anyone, but he is pretty funny too and will always answer any questions if anyone needed one. I learned so much in this course that I think my brain might explode from how much information I learned in just this one semester alone.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't stay up to late not doing homework. The homework can take fairly long depending on what topic it was, and don't try and cram all the information in right before the day of the test. Let me tell you that it does not work, if anything it worsens the grade because you try to cram so much all the night before then stay up too late and don't get enough sleep.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    She is not the best teacher. She does a horrible job at explaining the material and she grades harshly. You're basically on your own, considering that course is major hard.

    Course highlights:

    I did not learn much besides the fact that I can strive harder than I thought I normally could. I also learned that this course does not help you at all with Mechanical engineering.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is a very hard course. If you are not usually good at math, do not take it or at least take it with a different professor.
