Not too easy. Not too difficult.

There are four tests throughout the semester. The second and fourth are proctored exams with the fourth being cumulative. You are allowed to use a formula sheet during all tests which helps a lot!

Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
One of the easiest math gen-eds at Penn State. All homework and quizzes are online, and you get multiple attempts for them. Attendance is mandatory, but 10 absences are allowed. Some concepts can get tricky, I recommend attending Dr. Zelenberg's office hours if you need help on homework or the online exams, he is very helpful in explaining problems.
Course highlights:
I loved that the math in this course was relevant to REAL life. We learned lessons on how to pay mortgage, car loans, and various other personal finance topics.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Attend office hours if you need help with a concept.
