** CALCULUS I**

**STUDENT COMMENTS
ABOUT THE COURSE AND INSTRUCTOR:**

**(All comments are
from former students of Dr. French)**

I did not have any calculus in high
school, so I was a bit worried about taking calculus in college,
but it turned out I had no reason to be anxious in Dr. French's calculus class.
Dr. French brings such enthusiasm to his teaching that students cannot help but
get excited about math. Everything must be made clear for Dr. French's
students, and he explains concepts in easy to understand (and often funny) ways
so that students can grasp them. He emphasizes that each problem can be
solved, we just need to use our "weapons of math destruction" suited
to the problem. Not having to take notes is such a blessing in a math
course; you can focus all of your attention on learning and fully comprehending
the material for that class, rather than trying to scribble down in your
notebook what the professor said 3 sentences ago, while still trying to listen
to what he is saying at the present moment - this gets so many math students
lost and frustrated! Dr. French's truth gems are also an indispensable
part of his course; they are really encouraging to math students. I never
knew that the Bible could apply to my study of calculus before! Dr. French
made calculus fun for me. Because of him and the wonderful experience I
had in his course and the math self-confidence I gained taking his course, I
have decided to surpass my major requirements and go on to take higher level
calculus courses.
