Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I recommend any student to take this course with Mrs. Snell. The only thing that I didn't like about it and why I didn't do good was that I couldn't use a formula sheet or a scientific calculator.
Course highlights:
I learned that I need to know how to memorize formulas easier. I also learned that the Aleks program sucks! A better program is needed!!
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Be prepared to not be able to use a formula sheet or a scientific calculator. Also, bring plenty of scratch paper and a phone to take pics of the problems worked on the board.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this teacher because you can tell that he really cares. He will sit down and help you if you ever have a problem. He explains the problems so well that you have minimal questions about them.
Course highlights:
My highlight is that I could come out of that class and feel like I have really learned something. I can say that Mr. Meadows really prepared me for my Pre Calculus class. He was one of my favorite teachers and for once I was not afraid to take a math class.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
I would say to definitely do the practice tests and assessments he gives you on Aleks. They helped me a lot when it came to his tests. Also, make sure you do your work in the time frame that is given.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
It is a generally a basic college course requirement for entry level students. It's also helpful for high school students who want to get a jump start for their college math requirements.
Course highlights:
I learned factoring, with Binomials, Trinomials, Polynomials, cube roots, square roots, graphing. I learned different formulas such as standard form, slope intercept, etc. Also, I learned several ways to solve radical expressions.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Take your notes using different colored pens or pencils. Use highlighters to make important notes stand out. Study and review notes each day for at least 20 to 30 minutes.
