Quarter Taken: Winter 2016 Submitted March 25, 2016 Grade Received: C

Honestly, I learned a lot in this class. I took Calculus AB (part 1 of calc) in high school and I didn't learn anything; well I must have learned something because I passed that class (lol). I learned a lot more in this course and the materials were very well taught. The professor is definitely nicer (fair grader) than the TAs only because I felt like they graded really hard on the homework. Also taking the extra step in contacting the professor if you're having trouble is very useful because he's willing to help. I guess I didn't fully understand the materials, so I didn't do as well as other students, but I mean c'mon some of the students are in the engineering major. He does try to grade fairly so there are grading schemes, whichever works in your favor is the grade you get.

Grades wise:
Homework: not so well because I kept forgetting to do them.. D/F
Midterm 1: C+
Midterm 2: D/F <-- honestly don't remember
Final: C

In the end, just remember there is always a grade distribution, so the professor does have to make the exams harder in order to fulfill what the department assigned. Not everyone can get A's/B's obviously.

Andrews is a great professor, if you ask for help, if you go to office hours, if you sit at the front of the class you will most likely pass. None of the work he assigns is impossible to do, challenging yes but not impossible. He teaches the class like everyone has background knowledge of calculus so the people who have taken calculus before have somewhat of an advantage over those who haven't, thats why its important to seek out help if you havent taken calc before so that you dont get behind in class. I hadnt taken calc before I took this class so he kind of assaulted me with terms I had no clue about the first couple weeks, but I was able to catch up with what he was teaching in class. He is an extremely fair grader, I got a C for the first midterm, an F---- for the second midterm and a C for the final and I was able to pass the class because he recognized that I had done better in the final than I had in the second midterm. The key to this class is to ask for help and practice what is taught on the final, if you havent taken calc before you are probably going ta have to try a lot harder than the other people but its totally doable.

Michael is a dope professor. He's always down to help with problems. I didn't really do well on both midterms, but I ended up with an A-. Shit tonne of work though. Like you have to do a tonne of assignments and like only a quarter of it is graded; that really pissed me off. But a good class overall. Will be taking 31b with him next quarter.

He is so cool. Ez A. Never attend a single lecture but do finish his homework. And the practice exam which will almost cover the question in the real exam. Half of the exam will be calculating limits derivatives, integrals, and tangent lines. Homework due every week.
