    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a super tough class, but with the right instructor, you'll do great! Payal Roy was the best instructor I could've ever had for this class. Her teaching style was amazing. She was so patient and so understanding, and she really took the time to explain things, EVEN DURING EXAMS! :)

    Course highlights:

    She really explained things clearly. She would allow for us to have her check our exams (even the final exam!) once with her before we turned it in for her to grade. She would points out the spots where we messed up and have us go back and correct it after she gave us helpful hints! It was so great! She was very helpful!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    STUDY STUDY STUDY! And don't wait till the last minute to study for exams. Also, homework counts! Don't save it all till the day before you have to turn it in. It is time consuming, but you can get it done if you are dedicated. You don't have to complete ALL of your homework on your own in Payal's class. You can use the answer sheet. But really try to understand the concepts!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Algebraic Math is a great way to expand your mind! It is often abstract with no real concrete explanation. College Algebra in particular covers many concepts that teach you to explore new ways of looking at things, and to lead you out of your comfort zone.

    Course highlights:

    I was fascinated with my Professor's ability to remember what she was going to write on the board while stopping to explain a non related question. What a big mind!

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to every class; Do the homework; and Ask questions!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this class to anyone who is thinking of pursuing a career in a STEM field. This is a lower level math class that sets up the basics to be able to learn higher mathematics.

    Course highlights:

    This class not only taught me how to do the math homework, but it also focused on thinking critically and logically. Mathematics is one of the most important tools an adult can have to view the world from an objective and logical viewpoint.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you're well organized, sleep well, and eat breakfast. Math is tough because it challenges a lot of the presuppositions you make about life, and backs them up with irrefutable logic and evidence. You need to have a solid organizational system in place, keep an open mind, and make sure you're ready to have your preconceived ideas of the world challenged.
