Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Leanne is a GREAT prof! 3 tests, weekly home work and additional (but occasional quizzes) She is understanding, flexible and an AWESOME teacher. Math 111 is an easy course for those of us that just need to fulfill a math req!
Course highlights:
I learned so much more about the HISTORY of math than anything else. It is much more conceptual, but fairly simple. Personally, I've always struggled with algebra, geometry, etc, so this class was a simple but enjoyable one that gave me an entirely different perspective on an otherwise drab topic for myself.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
I'd take it again! If you need a simple math req but don't want to commit to awful algebra, take this! Also, the pre-req is only 020! I failed 051 and was thrilled to find out I could take a college level math that would get me to graduation. It is a great alternative to an other wise tough topic.
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
Kristen Born is the best math professor I have ever had! It was a different type of math class but very fun!
Course highlights:
I learned a lot more than I ever knew about the history of math and certain math concepts. If you like math but are not so great at algebra, this course is for you. We went over base systems, Truth Tables, how to do math in other cultures and throughout history, and some probability and statistics things.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
This course does require internet access for homework. This teacher is great because she will take time out of her day to help you if you are stuck and don't understand something.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I am speaking as one of the math illiterate, here. This class was divvied up into many sections that skimmed over parts of mathematical theory. I found some parts, like the logic equations and alternative numbering systems, interesting and fun. Those were the same sections that the math literate in our class found to be the most difficult. There was really something for everyone.
Course highlights:
I think my favorite part of this course was understanding that our numbering system (1-9) is far from the only one used in the world. We only think it makes the most sense because it's the one we grew up with.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
If one section is difficult, fret not - the next one will probably be easier. Also, do your homework! The tests are fine if you have done what you're supposed to.
