What are the students who succeeded in this online calculus class say and what advice they offer?
A UCSD studentI just wanted to say thank you. I went on to complete second semester calc,multivariate,linear algebra and differential equations at UCSD. Received A's in all my courses because this course really gave me a solid foundation.
Safia Abbasi, Univ. of Southern California, International Relations Global Business What surprised you the most?how much I learned and how willing I was to work with other students on-line. Your tips for other students to succeed. The best tip I can give is to create a STRUCTURED SCHEDULE and stick to it! It is so easy to fall behind in this fast-paced class, and having a designated day to watch the lecture and do the homework and allowing ample time to contribute to the on-line forum and get your questions answered is the most essential part in order to succeed in this class. I really cannot stress more how important it is to remain on task and organized.
From a student who took the course from a remote location, Fall 2007 I can only echo the sentiments of my classmates and say that this was truly a wonderful way to learn math. I am grateful to Dr. Goetz, Quan and the rest of the SFSU staff who made this happen. I also want to thank my fellow students who really jumped on the opportunity of using all the online tools at our disposal to mutually facilitate our learning. Meeting up online to study has been fun and very fruitful. I loved math before this class, but the experience has strengthened my resolve to continue working hard to understand and explore these profound and incredibly useful ideas. If only the first few math classes I was put through had been like this one! This format is a great idea and it goes a long way toward repairing some of the failings in the way math is traditionally taught at this level. That deserves huge kudos. I will certainly recommend these courses and will watch to see if more advanced calculus courses taught in this format become available. I actually can't wait to take more calculus now, haha smile OK, that's all for now, thanks again and have a wonderful summer everybody!
