    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    One of the reasons I loved math for the first time in a long time was because of this class. We used a website called ALEKS.In a lot of ways, ALEKS is the best possible iteration of textbook-style learning in the 21st century. It's an interactive book that knows exactly where kids are and what they're struggling with, and that's great. Decades of education research show that when kids work within their zone of proximal development, they're far more likely to succeed, and ALEKS keeps them there always.

    Course highlights:

    I usually struggled but win this class I effectively learned College level math and felt proud of my math skills.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's probably a good idea, though, to build in some discovery-based activities and in-depth exploration of real-world applications to promote and maintain student interest in math, because the content itself is about as dry as it gets. This is all about skill building, not invoking a sense of wonder or empowerment with and in the world of mathematics.

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    pay attention and write every note your professor writes on the broad.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Carpenter is great at explaining math. She takes her time to explain the problem in different ways if there are students who do not understand the way she explained it first. She is always very helpful and extremely polite and caring of your grades.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course would be the different learning styles Professor Carpenter explains her math in. We do a lot of different self taught projects that help a lot of people to understand what they are doing. I like the student taught lectures because some students think differently than the professor and it can be easier to understand coming from a student rather than a teacher at times.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice that I would give to students considering this course would be to get your homework done the night it is first assigned. If you do your homework the day that it was assigned, it will still be fresh on your mind and if you do it at the college, you can ask her for help.
