This class was tough.
Course Overview:
In an Engineer school trigonometry is usually a class you cannot bypass. However, I feel that taking this class at the school of mines has prepared me for future class, dispute of how difficult it was.
Course highlights:
What I gain from this course is a better understanding on how algebra and trigonometry basics can be applied to real life; specially career wise in the engineer world.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
It is important that you do not miss any lectures. When completing your homework, take notes and and be conscious of what principals are being applied. Lastly, be ready to spend lots of time doing trigonometry exercises; in this class the best way to learn is to practice!
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
The sooner you study the unit circle the easier class will be.
Course highlights:
Professor Beinert is very helpful and really cares for the students' learning. She is passionate about Math and only wants her students to understand the course as perfectly as possible. It is in her best interest to see her students succeed, especially if they are struggling at first.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Attend every class session and take detailed notes. Understand the unit circle as best as you can. If you do not understand a problem seek Prof. Beinert for help and then go over the question multiple times. Lastly, if you cannot teach the topic to someone else you do not understand the topic well enough.
