Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course (Quantitative Mathematics 1340) because the teacher Kinga Oliver is a tough cookie, and she really cares about her students. She does not accept no easy answers, and she works hard to make sure that the math skills you will need for daily life are integrated into your psych.
Course highlights:
I have learned how to multiply percentages by whole numbers. I have learned how to multiply and divide fractions by other fractions. I have learned how to measure interest by percentage rates. I have practiced and re-practiced how to do my taxes.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Get a really good scientific calculator--and make sure that you're familiar with it's settings before going in to math class. My calculator has funny settings that I can't seem to undo and handicaps me in class. I would also say look out for extra credit and homework opportunities. Every little point helps in the long run. I would also say pay attention to how much the exams are worth. I took an astronomy class and didn't know until a week before finals that the exams were going to be 60% of my final grade. This was bad news because I had not done well on the exams.
