Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Pre-calculus is a great "vetting-ground" to help you decide if you're ready to dip your toes into higher math. However, unless you are extremely dedicated or naturally gifted in mathematics, I advise against taking Pre-calculus during an abbreviated summer semester (especially not online). As with every math class, if you enjoy solving puzzles and building to your knowledge of the language of mathematics, it is fun to take.
Course highlights:
In this course you spend a good amount of time observing how trigonometry is translated into other concepts. You will learn how to convert a trigonometric expression from one type of function to another and learn how to graph and observe said function on different planes. My favorite part of this is rotating functions by an angle.

Advice for students:
Take advantage of the practice problems after every chapter in your text book.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
An outstanding professor with an organized regimen that completely keeps the student on his toes, waiting to see how far his mind can exceed to gather up the information needed. I came in taking Math 1316 the semester before, which truly prepared me with the necessary skill set to excel in Precalculus.
Course highlights:
I learned beyond the math from the textbook. Professor gave us real life scenarios and engineering problems that we would similarly do in the future as engineers in various industries. Beyond the problems in arithmetic, Professor Moebes gave us amazing tips and strategies that we could utilize in the near future to succeed.

Advice for students:
Make sure you know your trigonometric identities real well, because they will haunt and taunt if you do not. it is wise to consider knowing the trigonometric functions of angles within the circle and to also read ahead in the precal text book if you have got it already. Study whenever you can because this will help you in the long run.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
With Bicquart, he makes problems easy to understand and his tests are very easy! I'm usually not a fan of Math, but he makes it fun!
Course highlights:
The highlight was the reviews before every tests so you know exactly what would be on the test.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Be prepared to study all day, everyday.
