    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it gives you a stronger understanding of the background of mathematics. It also kept me interested in the course by teaching me new things. But I also liked how things I learned in the past tied in as well.

    Course highlights:

    I gained knowledge necessary to advance my learning in math and I enjoyed knowing the right answers while being prepared for what was next.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed I would recommend doing the homework and be sure to look over the book. Also the teacher is a great resource.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Although this class is of course College Algebra, it also teaches other aspects about life that I found to be very helpful when it came to learning how to follow through on things that are outside of your comfort zone.

    Course highlights:

    The most important highlight of this course was the fact that I was able to communicate with my peers about my mathematical fears, and by doing so I was able to liberate others who shared the same fears as I did. What I learned from this experience is that no matter what your academic fears are, be bold enough to share them with others because together we can shine.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This was one of our class ending questions as well. However, what I had mentioned was that the best suggestion that I could give for someone who may be taking this course and have a fear about their ability to complete it was this. Oftentimes in life we can function at very high levels of learning when things are associated with our comfort zone. When it comes to stepping beyond that point there are certain anxieties that come into play. It is these very same anxieties that serve as a catalyst to our next learning adventure, and it is also our newest roadmap to our next treasure. So be bold and adventurous in your attempt to live outside of your comfort zone and learn how your new capabilities are activated.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course, because the resources are incredible and the instructor is there with you every step of the way. It is a heavy weekly workload, but I have grown as a student, and found my own strength. A lot of the coursework you had unlimited attempts to achieve mastery of the content. Additionally, I enjoyed that each week's content built upon the information we learned in previous weeks. Mathxl is a great program Students use in this course to turn assignments in. There are plenty of resources, such as 'view an example' and 'help me solve this'.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that there is no such thing as 'math people' and 'nonmath people'. We all take different amounts of time to master materials, but it is always possible to be great at something. In week 1, we started with linear equations. The next few weeks were different kinds of factoring. Week 5, I learned new ways to complete quadratic equations-I had only known about the quadratic formula.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice for future students of MAT-134 is to work ahead so you do not overwhelm yourself. I did very well in this course, but do not wait until the last minute to work. One of the biggest necessities for this course is to take notes. Making sure your notes are clear and organized is crucial, so you spend less time on quizzes and exams. My last word of advice is to ask questions when you do not understand. Prior to starting, take a look at the course and ask any questions you may have. Asking questions early in the week gives you more time to work without stressing over a few questions you do not understand.
