    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Gendler is a sweet old man but his ability to teach has gone downhill as he's gotten older. He is incredibly intelligent and good for one on one, but in class, it's a struggle to keep up because he misses a lot of steps.

    Course highlights:

    The course covers a bunch of random topics you wouldn't expect to cover so it's pretty interesting.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Find a friend in the class, maybe get a tutor, and definitely read your book.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Dip genuinely cares about his students and tells you that you can contact him any time of the day, even if it's 3 am. I'm not a math person myself, so the class was fairly difficult for me. Without the help of my friend, I probably wouldn't have passed the class.

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Dip has a great sense of humor - He's always telling stories and cracking jokes. My favorite days were when he'd tell us stories. I learned about truth tables and validity of an argument. However, it wasn't like a typical math course with fractions and such.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely go to the tutor if you have time. Even if you understand the material, going over it won't hurt. Take up Dr. Dip's offers of calling him whenever - He's there for a reason. And don't wait too long to do the blue paper assignment he gives on the first day!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Excursions is an interesting class that covers a wide variety of topics in mathematics; however, Dr. Dip is a difficult instructor at times. This course requires you to do a lot of thinking and trial and error, but what you learn from the course is fun and rewarding.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to use critical thinking to solve mathematical problems. I learned how to solve very challenging problems that I never would have been able to solve without this course. I also learned how to calculate the day of the week any date in history was. Some of the topics were kind of basic, but we expanded upon them to challenge our minds and learn more applications for math.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You will have to apply yourself to the course and be dedicated to learning. Do not skip class because you will miss important information that will help you succeed in the class. Try all of the problems and keep up with the readings from the book, they will help you learn the material. Get a study buddy in the class to help you, or if you are doing well, help your buddy because you will benefit from teaching them too.
