    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class to those who are willing to put in the effort to study, practice, and review the material outside of class. Math is universal and is a strong foundation to have in any scientific field, so giving up on it won't do you any good. It's best to understand the concepts rather than to memorize the formulas because it becomes intuitive, thus, easier. If you plan on taking a higher math after Precalculus, make sure you pay extra attention and remember everything you've learned throughout this course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course include not only gaining knowledge and a foundation for the more complicated maths, but also enhancing and applying common sense. Some tend to focus more on formulas and key words for when or how to apply them instead of taking a step back and looking at the problem through a different lens - one of common sense; I find that when I do this, the problem becomes easier, more conceptual, and patterns are very easily detected. My professor was very good at teaching math conceptually rather than by memorizing.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you're going to take this course, take it seriously. If you know your Algebra or Trig isn't the best, make sure you review and master them by the time you take this course, so that you won't fall behind. Don't expect it to be easy or hard, just be open minded and go in with optimism and a strong will to learn and absorb. If you end up falling behind at any point, meet with your professor IMMEDIATELY and make sure you understand the material you're expected to understand.
