    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Keenan is a very dedicated and caring professor. I can promise that as long as the student values their grade and their education, there is no way that they will fail the class. He is always willing to help and has on numerous occasions stayed nearly two hours past class time to answer questions.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed that everyone in my class had the desire to achieve and thus were willing to help one another. The professor had very good input and was always willing to answer any questions no matter how late it was.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You must be sure to ask questions. Especially if mathematics is not your strong point. Questions will guarantee that you pass.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would only recommend this course if it is required and you really understand Algebra. I went into this class not really fond of math and not really caring and I literally passed this class by the skin of my teeth. Ms. McNamee is an awesome teacher, she will work with you but you have to show yourself approved. In this class, you must believe in yourself and come into class every day ready to learn.

    Course highlights:

    From taking this course I honestly gained confidence in myself, better math skills as well as awesome study skills. The highlight of this course for me was coming in not knowing anything about algebra and coming out being able to explain at least one concept to another student. I learned how to take advantage of a Professors office hours, different techniques on a Ti-89 and I honestly found my best friend and tutor in this class.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You must go into this course knowing the basics of Algebra, a positive attitude as well as a willingness to learn and be taught different ways to solve very simple problems. Make sure your first few days you find a study partner and create study groups. The first 3 test are short answer the last test is cumulative final but it's multiple choice. If you take the first test and see that you are struggling immediately go to Ms. Mcnamee's office and the academic learning center to get on track and learn different studying strategies. Other than that smile :) You'll get through this!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    He is really nice! He knows what he teaches if you go past his accent and if you understood most of your high school precalculus.

    Course highlights:

    This class enhanced my knowledge of precalculus.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it! He really knows what he teaches and he lets you out early sometimes.
