Course Overview:
Ms. Carla Adamson is a very good professor. If anyone has to take the course I recommend her because of how well she's explains and how thorough she is. She wants everyone to pass and if they don't understand she doesn't hesitate to help you get it and call random study days for students to meet with her. When someone walks into her class its an environment that is friendly and playful, but at the same time serious and a learning atmosphere.
Course highlights:
The highlights of this course were going to class everyday, doing the work, but at the same time enjoying myself because of how much I had in that class. Everyone in the class with me had formed a small family bond and that is when I realized that study groups and sessions worked because everyone excelled at something different so it was easy to assist each other. I had taken Pre Calculus in high school so this class was a refresher course to test me up for Calculus, which it did very well. Everything that I understood how to do, I now understood the concepts behind them.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
To succeed in this class, you have to go to class for participation points and to understand what was worked on that day. My advice to anyone taking this course with Ms. Adamson is to just try hard and do the work, your grades might not look good, but I promise she will find a way to help you out so you will pass the course and learn something so that you won't go into Calculus with a lack of knowledge.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course simply because it's a great way to test your math skills and see if you're ready for calculus.
Course highlights:
I learned that I am not good at math.
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
I ended up dropping the course because I did not prepare myself for entering pre-calculus. My suggestion is, if like me, math isn't your strong suit, to study before you start the class. My professor jumped right in assuming everyone knew the basics of calculus. I got intimidated and dropped the class.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I recommend this class because it will help you more with applied math versus formulas. Math in high school was nothing but memorizing but pre-calculus will help with math that people will do in everyday jobs.
Course highlights:
I learned reading word problems better and understanding what problems were asking for.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure that when you enter the classroom you are ready to work and learn. Also , never take a math class that's over an hour long.
