Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
My professor has offered an immense amount of help to ensure that his students are understanding the material to it full extent.
Course highlights:
I learned the entire Math 171 curriculum. My professor took it upon himself to provide exploratory learning opportunities through insightful videos. We also connected what we learned to the real world.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure you have the time to do the homework. Ask questions for clarification.
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
Precalc is one of the required math classes in most field of studies. To acquire an associates of arts or science, one needs to pass this class. It is also a prerequisite to higher level math classes.
Course highlights:
Personally I enjoy math, so it came to me easy. I learned a lot about the TI-83 calculator in that class. The highlights of the course definitely had to have been the people. Precalc is the type of class to bring people together. Teaming up with others to figure out problems made the course much more exciting. After all there's nothing more enjoyable than learning how to do problems that some people despise.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
If there was any advice I could give students on this course, it's to always study. Any sort of math requires some sort of memorizing a formula. Precalc especially, has a handful of formulas one needs to remember. In college, homework alone will not pass students like it did in high school so making sure to do good on tests and quizzes makes the class less stressful. In order to pass however, unless you are some sort of genius, you have to study.
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
Mrs. Hercula was super patient, understanding, helpful, and willing to tutor and make sure we understood all the material. She gave proper study information and well prepared us for tests/exams.
Course highlights:
What I liked best about this course other than the professor was the real life examples provided relating to the math we were learning as well as the group study sessions we had.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Do your assigned homework, even though they are not all graded, they really help you gain a more solid foundation of the material that was taught and you never know which homework will be chosen for a grade.
