Comments on the course

Most people say that Calc 2 is a weed out class, but I think that this course was pretty well taught and fair. The course was spread out and organized good and the weekly quizzes were quite easy if you pay attention in class. The Xronos are kinda dumb because they are harder than the actual exam questions. I just recommend finding the asnwers and spend more time learning the content itself from youtube or lecture notes. Calc 2 content was pretty easy imo but the reason i got a C+ is beacuse the exams were pretty difficult (or maybe because i just suck at test taking). This class is very doable and if you know the basics of calc 1 and the unit circle, you should be fine

Comments on the professor

He is amazing! He might go a little fast in the lectures but he is very helpful during his office hours and I would see him everyday to receive help and he responds to his emails if you need help.

Advice

After each lecture, watch a youtube video from the Organic Teacher Guy so you can get a better understand of the material and visit the math tutoring in Little Help. Make sure to understand each lecture because if you dont, you can get behind and itll be hard to catch up.

Comments on the course

My only A- yet in college. I was one question on the final off of an A unfortunately. I did really well on the first two exams, but the final sucked.

Course Content

It's all about memorization baby. Very dull, mostly differentials and integration but very complicated.

Comments on the professor

Chui was very nice and helpful. Sometimes she didn't fully understand what students were asking but was very available to help after class and was generally better one-on-one.

Advice

As Chui herself revealed to me... you can see the answers on Xronos. My best advice: give the problem a good effort always but never let yourself get less than 100% on homeworks. Make sure that you understand every problem by the time you're done getting help though. Build up a big buffer for your exams and do all the practice tests and get help. You'll do better on the tests if you do that too.

Comments on the course

The course is not too difficult as long as you don't get behind. The first and second parts of the course are very different. The third part will be straightforward if you followed the first two.

Course Content

The homework is good practice and designed fairly well. Study the old exams and homework to do well.

Comments on the professor

Dr. Manly is wonderful. Clear, respectful, and caring. He was instrumental to my learning.

Advice

Don't slack on the homework it will mess you up.

Comments on the course

The class itself was of moderate difficulty. Some parts are easier than others, and having a solid foundation is recommended.

Course Content

Lots of integration techniques to make calculus easier.

Comments on the professor

Professor was wonderful. Can not recommend her enough.

Advice

Make sure you know your own strengths and weaknesses. Practice the things that you're not strong with.

Comments on the course

I was told this was one of the more difficult math courses at UF. After taking it, I believe that a lot of the challenge depends on your experience. If you've taken calc BC or an equivalent you should do fine, but I also wouldn't expect to know everything. Content aside, I felt the math was more complex in this course.

Comments on the professor

Manly is a very encouraging professor who truly puts his students first. Even though his lectures were on Zoom when I had him, I still found his lectures engaging and easier to follow than other courses I've taken.

Advice

If you're ever struggling try supplementing Manly's lectures with Khan academy. I found this extremely helpful for MAC2313, and so I think it would help for this course as well.

Comments on the course

The final was much harder than the midterms. I scored 93-100 on the midterms and got a 52% on the final because I was trying to frantically relearn as many things as possible and didn't have the time to study any skills in depth.

Course Content

Some of the content in this class like integration techniques, parametric equations, and polar coordinates have obvious real world applications. But some of the theoretical content like the "physics" problems where you have to calculate force on perfectly thin shapes is not very practical.

Comments on the professor

Chui was generally nice and friendly, but she frequently didn't finish the lectures in time and was generally meh at answering questions. Luckily, Manly was my coordinator so I would watch his lectures if I didn't understand something.

Advice

The questions on the final are on another level compared to the midterms. You can skate by on the midterms with pattern recognition, but you should really know what you're doing before finals season.

Comments on the course

I have never taken any kind of AP or IB calc, and Prof. Chui made this class fairly simple. I loved having her as a teacher. Put in the effort for her exams because she will definitely test your knowledge!

Comments on the professor

- Easy to follow during lecture - Compassionate, email her w concerns you have - Exams are fair but you need to know the knowledge like the back of your hand

Advice

Do the practice exams and the homework's thoroughly!

Tough, if you're not a math-person, you'll have to put in a lot of work.

Course Content

Nothing that pertains to my major (Comp Sci).

Comments on the professor

I didn't actually have York, I had Dr. Chui, and she was super helpful! Very nice, and always available.

Advice

Once you get behind, you won't ever catch up, do not procrastinate at ANY cost.

Comments on the course

Overall pretty easy for me since I had taken AP Calc BC, but there was still new stuff that was a bit difficult. Probably difficult without experience.

Comments on the professor

Amazing, takes his time explaining and doesn't skip steps. Definitely try to get him.

Advice

Do the homework as soon as you do the corresponding lesson, it's easy to fall behind.

Comments on the course

Covers integration, series (for use with Taylor series), parametric/polar equations. The most frustrating part about the course was that practice problems done in class were nowhere near the level of difficulty of homework/exam questions.

Comments on the professor

I took Manly. He was nice, but there's really no interaction with him. He teaches fairly well. If you have questions, you'll probably ask your TA in the weekly discussion class. It really depends on how well your TA can explain.

Advice

Make sure you know how to do the homework questions. Exam questions are more similar to homework questions than the practice problems done in class.

Probably the hardest STEM weed out class you can take. The course goes into depth about integration and series!!!

Comments on the professor

Would not recommend York for MAC2312, I took him for MAC2311 and he’s was amazing just for that course. Recommend Manly!!! You can always look up UF MAC2312 and his past lectures and exam reviews are available!

Advice

Get study edge if you can afford it, if not use UF Knacks tutoring!!! The Broward tutoring center does amazing exam review a couple days before the exam!!!
