Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this class only if you plan on taking it very serious. Dr. Acosta is a good teacher, but she expects you to put in the time to study and do practice problems on your own.
Course highlights:
I believe the highlights are the lab days because you can ask the T.A. as many questions as you need and work practice problems that are similar to the quizzes and tests
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Try and work as many problems as you can and ask any questions that you need. The professor and T.A. are willing to do whatever they can to help you succeed.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
He explains all the concepts in detail, and while that may put the class a bit behind, you'll at least be able to understand what you are supposed to do. There is a lot of homework though so as long as you are able to pace yourself and use the lab well you will succeed.
Course highlights:
The explanations for the topics we went over were very thorough which helped me to learn the basic steps necessary to complete the homework and do well on tests. Ellipses, and hyperbolas were probably the longest section.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Find a timeline to work on homework, spread the work out over several days.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Dr. Morey is an amazing teacher; she is passionate and knowledgable and more than willing to help if students attend office hours and are engaged in the class.
Course highlights:
While I had taken some calculus in high school, this course was not just a simple review. She explained in greater depth the reasons WHY formulas that students accept as true worked the way they did, and was more than prepared to answer any and all student questions.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Doing the homework is a must; time and practice are the only ways to truly nail the concepts covered in this course. Office hours of both Dr. Morey and the TA are extremely helpful, as they review homework, exams, and quizzes at students' request.
