Comments on the course

I had taken Calculus 1 and Calculus 2 in high school already, so I already expected the material to be easy. It was not bad at all, and the exams were fair. Every week you have to take a proctored quiz on zoom with a TA, and you are also allowed to ask about problems beforehand. This would be great, but the TA I got was not good at explaining things and let his baby cry in the background every week unmuted while we took our quizzes.

Course Content

The course content was not quite as in depth as the Calc 1 course I took in high school, but it definitely covered all the bases and was not difficult to get through. In addition to class meetings, there were recorded lectures, TA sessions once a week, office hours, and a class wall called Xronos where you could post a question or problem and other students/TAs/professor would help with it.

Comments on the professor

Professor Grady was a pretty good lecturer. I had no complaints.

Advice

The class meetings with Professor Grady (or whoever else you have) are the most important for learning the material and asking questions. The recorded lectures are by Dr. Knudson, and they can be hit or miss in terms of understandability.
