This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I took this class in 1991. This course challenged me beyond what I expected it to. I had to take this course twice, and because of this, I really applied myself and I overcame my fear of math! My teacher was great also!
Course highlights:
I can honestly state that because of this course I fell in love with math. All of my life I was not good at math. I was sick and tired of being defeated by math, so I took it on without fear and I got an A!! Now I am excited to take math courses because I proved to myself that I can do it! and if I can do it, anyone can!
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Apply yourself; Do not miss class! Pay attention and ask questions. If you feel yourself getting behind or confused on a problem then stay after class and discuss it with your teacher until you get it. Meet with a tutor if necessary!
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I recommend this class because not only is it a great class, but the professor really helps you understand and prepare you for bigger goals in life.
Course highlights:
Highlights of this course we're math of course. You learn everything from the basics of math to building yourself up to preparing for calculus.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Do not wait until the last minute to study and study groups help a lot! Also a great study tip is if you don't understand find a TA or go ask the professor. They are not as scary as you think.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course if you are going into calculus as it is crucial to learn the basics before going onto more difficult things, math is something you have to build knowledge on. Also you learn a lot of Graphing and functions in this course that is beneficial to real life application. example: how far down something dropped from initial point of building etc.
Course highlights:
The highlights were learning about calculating velocity of objects and figuring out word problems alike. I learned how to solve inverse functions, how to make variables to solve for a word problem, how to calculate speed of an object and the amount of distance traveled and lots of ways to graph equations etc.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
I would recommend that other students complete all the homework and study religiously, and if you don't understand something or need help simply find help from your teacher, tutors etc. Do not ever procrastinate, you will get behind and most likely fail and have to repeat the course. And never be afraid to ask questions shy people!!!
