Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Calculus, contrary to popular belief, is actually a fun course! I always felt something was missing from Pre-Calculus, and, crazily enough, Calculus was just it. If you like knowing WHY things work, do your homework, and study for the exams, you'll do well.
Course highlights:
Calc I focuses mainly on derivatives, so on a basic level you cover: 1. Limits (what a derivative IS) 2. Derivatives (how to evaluate derivatives) 3. Applications of Derivatives (how to USE derivatives) 4. Integrals (the reverse of a derivative, and how to use it (elementarily))
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
You're probably required to take this anyway, so just get through it. If you pay attention you'll be fine.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This class is very challenging. Professor Butler will push you harder than every before, and it will likely be the hardest math class you have taken up to the point.
Course highlights:
Professor Butler is an engaging professor that makes lectures as fun as Calculus can be. It is very rewarding to figure out challenging problems.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Be prepared to get lower grades than you are expecting. He puts a generous curve at the end, but you may need to get used to getting low grades.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Calculus is not my favorite thing in the world, however it is super useful.
Course highlights:
Limits, Derivatives, and basic manipulations of integrals
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
Put more time into it. Really understand the concepts, and study more than I did. creating a solid base in calculus is invaluable for science majors. Know everything about trignometry
