    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is more difficult then one would assume, given the course number. It is made up of weekly quizzes based off of material summarized in PowerPoint presentations. 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!

    Course highlights:

    In this course, you learn about helpful concepts like compound interest, annuities, stocks and bonds, etc.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep track of which formulas go with which concepts.

    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.
