    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The Professor was awesome. She really helped out each person in class and was invested in my success.

    Course highlights:

    The in class strutted started with a warm up, then the lesson for the day, followed by working in groups.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that if you take this class be prepared for a lot of homework. The in group thing is a great idea and will be good in the beginning but, once tests come along not many peers want to work together.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    During my senior year of high school, I made a huge mistake of pretty much hitting neutral and not taking a math class at all that year. I cannot stress how important it is that you do not do this. During my senior year, I thought it was the best idea and I could cruise through to the end. By the time my freshman year of college began, I was struggling mightily in my Math 111 class because I hadn't taken math in over a year. I had quite a bit of trouble with all my work and even had to take the class a second time because I just could not grasp the concepts. All this said though, I LOVE this class. I am able to understand all the information much more thoroughly and am working very hard towards my goals. I would definitely recommend this class because it allows you to continue to move forward in your mathematics career, but also helps with your confidence in all the work you accomplish.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights for me were taking in all of the notes and work and being able to succesfully accomplish all of the homework and tests. I had a great time taking the quizzes and tests during the class because my confidence was high and I felt like I knew everything that was being thrown my way. This was great for me, because I had struggled so much during my first time in this course and any tiny bit of positivity went a long way.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would definitely take this course, because even though it is hard it is also very rewarding. It allows you to continue your mathematical career, while at the same time showing you that anything you set your mind to can get done. No matter how hard something seems, if you work for it, you can accomplish it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    He is an engaging teacher and takes time to help you own the knowledge and not just "rent" it.

    Course highlights:

    he covers how to use a graphing calculator efficiently and helps you to understand logarithms in a easy fast paced setting.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take in class notes! they are invaluable, and it would be impossible to get a passing grade without them. Take notes, take lots of notes, just take all the notes!
