Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Dr. Vivian Cyrus is a wonderful teacher and person. She explains content thoroughly and with visual aids.
Course highlights:
I learned Calculus very well. The professor is understanding and the content is explained well.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
You have to be able to get up early and be on time. The class is a four days a week at 8am. The professor gives quizzes every Tuesday and Thursday so you have to be in attendance.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course if you are someone who needs to be organized with their work. This professor makes color coding mandatory on homework and exams, and I found myself a year later using the same technique I was taught by Dr. Blankenship in picking a color for a particular section of my notes. She was a wonderful woman who was very energetic and definitely made it worth your while to attend lecture.
Course highlights:
I learned how to collaborate with others on problems I did not understand, rather than just immediately asking for help from the professor. This course taught me the basic math I needed for calculus 3, and now that I am enrolled in the latter course I can certainly thank the professor for the thorough job she did.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Be prepared for hard grading, but also know that this will certainly pay off in the end. After over a year later I can still remember the important information the professor taught us students, and as I am enrolled in a vigorous course now I can definitely say I am glad I had this professor for calculus 1 (although I may not have thought the same thing while taking this course because I felt like this class was too much work). After the semester was over, I reflected on the work given and realized that all of the exercises and homework assignments given that I had originally believed were excess, I found them to be helpful.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Dr. Ahmadi is the best math instructor I've had. She is friendly, explains everything well, and uses a style of teaching that ranks your understanding of different concepts into tiers. Once you reach mastery tear, you are given an A for that section so you have all semester to continually review content and to get better scores and understanding on your exams.
Course highlights:
Highlights were seeing how excited Dr. Ahmadi got over teaching and helping people understand calculus. She covered a great intro into calculus and even touched on beginning information for calculus 2 by the end of the semester. Easily the best math teacher in Morehead.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Do the homework and ask Ahmadi questions. She will work any problem out for you and you can reference your homework on the quizzes that happen every week.
