Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
It was great class and it had a great professor!
Course highlights:
I learned basic common algebra that was vaguely gone through in high school. After 4 years I have finally been able to understand logs.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Go into class each day with an open mind, and an open notebook. Do not think "Oh gosh, I stink at math, so I am going to fail." go in thinking "I am going to learn today" and do not be afraid to ask for help!
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This was a required class for my major. I believe if you talk to your professor and get help right away if you have any questions, you are bound to succeed math!
Course highlights:
Well i sucked at math and I hated it. But I learned that asking for help when needed is very important. Instead of memorizing the notes the professor gave you, ask your professor to cover other problems so you can be familiar and more unstinting of the material
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Study hard and make sure to review the formulas
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Chris Southworth is a great instructor and really care about his students understanding the material. The course itself covers a broad spectrum of algebra and helps to give students a solid background with basic information over a lot of topics so they can be successful in other realms of math as well. It is a good course the is of moderate difficultly but surely do able.
Course highlights:
The highlights go this course was defiantly the number of topics it covered. In this course, you will learn a to about domain and how to apply it in multiple areas of algebra. It also teaches how to relate time, distance and rate of change which are all valuable things to know and can be considered real life applications in jobs and professions.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
My biggest piece of advice for someone looking to do well in this course is to go to office hours, it will make a difference with how well you will understand the material and the instructor helps to present the information in a different way if it did not make sense in class. My other recommendation would be to do as many different types of practice problems as possible so that why when it comes to the tests and quizzes, you will most likely have seen a similar problem before.
