Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Math classes online can be very difficult, but the format of this class made it as painless as math can be. Great video lectures to accompany readings and the practice homework and quizzes were actually very helpful.
Course highlights:
This is the first time I felt like a math course had real life applications. Not only could I see how to apply some of these principles to the work I do on a daily basis, but there were applications to personal finance and even Excel practices that boosted my skills and confidence with that tool. Dr. Mooring was very interactive, providing resources beyond the textbook and always happy to answer questions when something was confusing. I am not a huge fan of math, especially statistics, but he and the tools used in the course made it approachable and rewarding.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Be prepared to spend time watching the videos and doing the practice questions for homework. Though they aren't graded, they will help you get the understanding you need to do well on quizzes and exams.
This class was tough.
