A Few Big Assignments
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I recommend this course because it made me learn to study better and taught me how to take better notes! I used my notes to study for the hard tests, and I usually got B's. I would also make flashcards for the equations we had to learn. It was very helpful.
Course highlights:
I remember the long division of polynomials. It was very taxing but I got through it! We learned interest formulas, logarithms, and inverse functions, etc. We covered so much in this course in such little time! It was hard to keep up with at times but it was worth it.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Expect to study and take a lot of notes! Your textbook will probably be your best friend, (and Khan academy!) Also, try not to overthink things. Everything that you learn is derived from basic math that you've learned your whole life. Sometimes I would have to take a break, then coming back I realized I was overthinking. If you ever get frustrated, it is okay to step away.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
It is a very tough class, but the profession was great at explaining her points.
Course highlights:
The highlights would be re-learning everything on the final. It was much easier than expected.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Study and always do your homework.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Mrs. Taylor is a wonderful College Algebra teacher. She does not fly through the material like some math teachers I've had. She makes sure that you know the material. And if you don't, then it's your own fault. She has gone as far as spending a whole class period recovering material on a homework section because quite a few students had problems with it. Even if you did understand it, she will go over it again for those who do not.
Course highlights:
My highlight for this class was the amount of material she is able to teach in a semester. The way Mrs. Taylor teaches material is in a way that everyone can understand it. She will go to great lengths to make sure you succeed.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
If you want to make it through this course then go to class! She makes it fun to learn and it's interesting. You will not survive it if you do not attend. It is difficult to catch back up when you skip and decide you have a case of the "sleepies" as she calls it for that day. P.S. She likes to give bonus points to those who attend on Friday morning classes if there are quite a few students missing.
