When I compare Jim Fowlers course "Calculus Two: Sequences and Series" to Prof Ghrist course "Calculus: Single Variable" (the part that deals with series and sequences), I notice teach the problem completely different even though the content is quite similar.

While Ghrist is all about explaining it once and doing homework for hours to have you master it, Jim Fowler will actually take you by the hand and show you the ropes step by step.

While Ghrist is all about memorizing and allowing few or one attempt to score, Fowler will give you hints all up to the answer in this course and allows you many as many attempts as you'd like.

Since I find it quite a hard topic I'm glad Fowler explained everything so clearly so I could pass Ghrist's course more easily.
