Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Personally, I would recommend this course to future students. This course, while encompassing a bit of the stuff I learned in my high school math classes, taught me a tremendous amount about the mathematical formulas I will need in the future, such as compound interest formulas and stuff of that ilk, more more in depth that an high school classes did.
Course highlights:
I'd have to say that some of the biggest highlights in the class was learning how to work Microsoft Excel. Throughout my high school experience, I had been taught how to use many different Microsoft programs, such as Word and PowerPoint, but never excel. This class was a relatively perfect balance of instruction on how to work excel and how to use it to complete assignments as well.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
The math assignments can be quite long, and some can be quite tricky, so I highly recommend budgeting a bit of time each day to work on it, instead of just trying to get through the entire assignment in one day, this way the information and formulas linger in your brain longer. Don't be afraid to ask for help. As for the mid term and final projects, don't put them off until the last minute. I did that and nearly met with disaster. They are huge, important assignments that require a lot more work that one would think if they just glanced at it. Try to do a piece of the project a week.
