    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I will recommend each student to practice a topic at home whenever it’s has been taught. More practice of math can end up into a long term membranes. I will make sure I complete all my assignments on ALEKS and with in the class. Student should make sure to complete every study guide. It can be a great help before an exam. Students should always have a calculator during a test; it saves time.

    Course highlights:

    I discovered that mathematics is not a really difficult subject after all, it just takes a lot of practice and effort in order to be good a solving problems.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to practice more math problems whenever it’s been taught. Student should take all exams serious and assignments. It has a big impact on the grades. Another big impact is the extra credit given before a test on ALEKS I will recommend students to always complete the extra credit.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The labs and outside work is easy but the professor is hard to understand.

    Course highlights:

    I have gained more knowledge of Algebra compared to when I was in High School. My highlights were the labs because they were simple and it was a light day.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay close attention because the professor won't review the material for the test.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I really recommend this course for anyone needing a new start in math. The teacher is so so great, she goes through EVERYTHING step by step, reviews before starting new material, and explains every subject thoroughly. She really does care and wants to make sure you understand the material and why something is the way it is. Before this class I liked math but struggled with, lacked proper foundation, and was never sure of myself in my calculations. Honestly one of my best teachers.

    Course highlights:

    I have really understood everything I've learned, its now engrained in my mind. It is making me consider changing to a math major. I have really learned all the basics and building blocks I need to continue into any major confidently. I am someone who enjoys the math because there is always a straight-forward answer. In this class you get to see what makes the answers you get correct, allows you to make sense of them and the formulas you used to get the answers. It really shows you the foundations of math and ties in so many different aspects.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say study the material you went over in class that same day, even if for only 15 minutes. Also keep a separate notebook for practice problems and one for your notes. Also use khanacademy for any questions, but this teacher really gives you all the notes you'll need.
