Course Overview:
As a remote student, it is so important to me to have a teacher who can personalize their communications with each individual student, and not just a copy and paste response to every question. This course has walked me through the very basics of liberal math while challenging me with math problems that were lengthy and tedious. They explained every step towards the solution. I highly recommend this course.
Course highlights:
Throughout this course, I have learned fundamental liberal math skills that are necessary to know for the real world. I learned about loans, APRs, and how interest is calculated for repayments. I better understand how interest rates and APRs affect the amount paid for a product in the long term. This course was also very insightful for calculating probabilities, and learning about standard deviations and how it is applied to the stock marketplace.

3-5 hours
Advice for students:
You don't necessarily need a graphing calculator just yet, so if you haven't already purchased one, and looking to save a chunk of money, a scientific calculator will be appropriate for this course, and they are much more affordable. You will probably need to eventually invest in a graphing calculator throughout you degree program, buy one used.
