Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Great professor, explains topics well and is very clear on requirements. Go to class and listen to him and you will learn a lot. Make sure to do the readings and look over your notes.
Course highlights:
Taught all concepts well. You will learn a lot if you take it seriously. I learned a heck of a lot about calculus. The highlight is the professor. He goes over everything very well and wants you to understand everything.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Get Javor if you can, he is the best professor for the course. He will make sure that you learn a lot and that you get the concepts. Go to his office hours and talk to him after class. You will get a lot from this class.

Course Overview:
Calculus 3 is to engineers as basic algebra is to a high school graduate. Once you learn it, you notice it everywhere around you. After taking this course, I can’t even toss my blanket in the air while making my bed without wondering how much space there is between my blanket and my mattress. The beauty of learning this class is that it can be applied to so many other courses, providing shortcuts to solving problems as opposed to conventional ways. I do have to mention that Professor Busch was the greatest instructor I have ever had and I give him credit for pulling this new found passion for calculus out of me.
Course highlights:
Class lectures were not mandatory, but there was rarely an empty seat in class. Students who were not even enrolled in that class section or even Calculus 3 would sit in lectures, so there’s no question that the lectures were the highlight of the course. Professor Busch has a gift of simplifying, what appeared to be complicated concepts, into ways that we would understand what we were calculating. He would also blend the perfect amount of humor into class. Integrating above, below, inside, or around any shape, line, or other geometric makeup is easily the most useful topic I took out of this course. This has helped in courses such as fluid mechanics and will continue to help me as I progress into more calculus applied courses.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Taking Calculus 3 is one of the most important courses you can take as an engineer, and it is something that will stick with you in the real world. Life is written in the language of math, and it feels good to walk around knowing that you speak a little more. This course is not progressively harder than the first or second calculus, and the right professor can make it a breeze. Be sure to keep on top of the homework and read the chapters before arriving to class so you are prepared with any questions.
