This class was tough.
Course Overview:
If you are the type of student who needs a lot of guidance and teacher instruction...this is not the class for you.
Course highlights:
Many students hate the team based learning style of this class, but this actually saved my grade.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Read the book, but don't rely to heavily on it because Johnstons tests are nothing like the book problems
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
He was a good teacher the recitations/quizzes were extremely helpful. Not as hard as you think if you keep up with the homework.
Course highlights:
I learned how to compute derivatives and integrals relatively fast.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Go to the test reviews and SI sessions
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.
