    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I took this course as a dual credit class, so I feel that it is much easier to get it out of the way in high school because the online version is much easier than having to do it face-to-face. The professor does a great job of providing notes and help over e-mails.

    Course highlights:

    We learned a lot of the basics of college algebra, as well as reviewing principles of previously learned mathematical techniques.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes of the ways you solve equations and problems in the homework because it will help a ton on the exams.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course I took was taught by a coach that didn't teach well. He expected everyone to figure it out on their own. It wasn't the most difficult course I have ever taken but it would have been better with the help of the instructor.

    Course highlights:

    I learned algebra but I didn't get a full grasp on graphing parabolas and the like.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study and don't wait for the instructor to explain every step because there is a chance that they will not. Goggle the problems and you can find tutorials that will help teach you.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is absolutely the only professor I could actually retain any information from for math. I still use my notes from college algebra to help me through Pre-cal courses. He takes you through whatever problem step-by-step and is willing to help you if you show the effort.

    Course highlights:

    Factoring was used throughout all of this course, linear equations, how easy it is to mess up when you're going too fast or even overthinking a problem

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend to do the homework, go to his office hours as much as possible if you plan to achieve an A. Never miss a class, talk to him if you do. If you need help, he is willing to do so if you reach out to him.
