This class was tough.
Course Overview:
i would highly recommend this course! i loved this course because it almost completely caught me up in my math skills. all of the math is very useful and the material itself is super interesting and fun to learn. after this class, you will no doubt feel like a more intelligent human being. it actually made math feel super fun for me. after that class, i feel like i have a better understanding of the world and just a better understanding of things in general. i would highly advise that anyone take this class in their college career.
Course highlights:
My highlights of this course were for sure going home after the lecture and restudying the math with my math tutor. i was able to learn so much even if one day i wasnt totally understanding what was being taught. i learned all about different types of equations. i especially loved learning about matrices. i learned so much about equations and how they correlate to graphs and that makes it way easier to organize information. something else i loved learning about was each of the different equations for the different types of shapes such as the eclipse.
Hours per week:

Advice for students:
take notes every single day and be ready to work hard but also be excited to literally start feeling your brain being exercised and expanded.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Mr. Schweitzer's teaching style is a perfect combination of thorough and concise. He explains things simply and effectively. If you're looking to really understand the subject, he's a great professor to have. There are four exams culminating in the final, with plenty of lightly weighted quizzes in between so you have ample opportunities to assess your own progress. The homework is comprehensive and easily completed, as it's all completed online. I was terrified of college algebra, and so far, it has been downright fun.
Course highlights:
Throughout the class we studied mostly functions. We went through quadratic, polynomial and rational functions. We covered inverse, composite, exponential and logarithmic functions. We also covered sequences, matrixes, systems of linear equations, partial fraction decomposition, and summation notation. We then went on to discuss circles, parabolas, ellipses and hyperbolas in greater detail.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Come to class, do the homework, and ask lots of questions.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course while in high school so you can get it out of the way and not have to do it in college! It's super easy and definitely worth it!
Course highlights:
I learned a lot from a great teacher! All of the different math formulas were explained well and it was a smaller class so we got more one on one explanations.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure you keep up on your assignments! Don't put them off. Just do them the day they are assigned so that you don't have all of these assignments piled up right before a test!
