Comments:

Math 10 "Introductory Calculus, Part II," is a second semester calculus course. It requires some high school calculus or Math 9.

Students had nothing but praise for Professor [sic] Chris Towse. He was enthusiastic, well prepared, and funny. He explained things clearly. He kept interest up.

The course had two exams and a final in addition to weekly homework assignments and quizzes in section. Students spent 2-5 hours per week on this course.

This course helped students appreciate math more. Sections were useful for going over homework. Respondents thought the TA was good, but would have been better had he been more competent in English.

Overall, students learned a lot form this course. It was a generally enjoyable course due to the great teacher.
