This class was tough.
Course Overview:
The course is designed to prepare you for the basics of math. I admit, the course is difficult if you are not a math person. It is important to take this class very serious even if you did take it in high school.
Course highlights:
The highlight of this course was that I learned a valuable lesson about taking my classes serious. Being a freshman can really cloud your judgment on how to handle classes and assignments. For this course, it is best to get a tutor if you are having trouble with any of the math problems that will definitely be on the exam.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
It is important to never slack off when it comes to math. Transitioning from high school math to college math is not easy. You are going to still have to study math and prep yourself for the quizzes that are every week and exams that are every month. College is a working progress, the only way to be successful is to really get involve academically. Attend as many tutoring sessions you can and also don't slack off on the homework. The homework can prepare you for quizzes if you utilize all the resources it has to offer. Also, for the exams make sure you study because not all of the formulas are provided and some formulas are irrelevant.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Take it online, it makes it more pushing for you to teach yourself the material and the online professors are actual professors.
Course highlights:
The online aspects were nicer than in class workbooks. I got a better grasp on math from the online textbook and work problems.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Take it online and meet with the professor as soon as you don't quite grasp something immediately.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This course is recommended if one is able to put in the hard work, time, and effort needed to be successful in the course. College algebra at a University is not a breeze, so if math does not come easy, then it is important that tutors, study sessions, and more resources are taken advantage of during the course.
Course highlights:
The highlights of this course was the amazing teacher who was patient with the students and worked hard to ensure that all students had a clear understanding of the course material. I learned that math is all about perfect practice, so when you practice it corrrectly, then you will score well on exams.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Do not be discouraged if the first grades are not up to your standard, use the low scores as motivation to work even harder to strive to get a better grade than before.
