    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Anyone who plans to take Calculus in college needs a solid foundation of trigonometric concepts and tools. Prof. Milner teaches both trigonometry and calculus, so I'd highly recommend taking his courses in continuity, as he understands how the concepts translate to more advanced material. He expects hard work and self motivation, but he will not chastise you for asking a "dumb" question.

    Course highlights:

    I find joy out of full understanding of a new (to me) branch of mathematics, however I am a nerd in that regard and I'll be the first to admit it. Prof. Milner has an uncanny ability of breaking down complex mathematics into simple concrete terms, so he's fantastic for students who don't consider themselves highly skilled at math.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Repetion, repetition, repetition! To get a good grade and thorough comprehension of Trigonometry requires an extensive amount of memorization, so be prepared to spend a lot of time doing so. Make flash cards, write them down repetitively, make a unit-circle song, whatever you have to do, DO IT! Oh, and ask questions like you're an FBI agent, but thorough and relentless, and you'll be rewarded

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you enjoy math and/or are pursuing math/science, I would absolutely recommend Trigonometry. If math isn't really your cup of tea, your degree path is not science-based, and you just want to get your math credit requirements out of the way, I would recommend something more practical, such as Personal Finance, Business Math, or Math in Society.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the difference being "trying" and actually applying myself, and this is still one of the most important lessons I have learned.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I had a really tough time in this course, despite feeling that I had tried very hard at the time to succeed. In retrospection, I realize that while I did spend a substantial amount of time reading the textbook and doing my homework, I was missing a key component to being a successful student: using my resources. My advice is to never underestimate the vast pool of resources readily available to you as a college student. There are on-campus tutoring centers and online tutoring sites. You have a room full of students who might be in the same boat as you- why not reach out and see who is interested in forming a study group? On top of all of this, remember that your instructor is there for you. They have an email address, office hours, and they want you to take advantage of that and seek them out when you need assistance. To truly be the best student you can be, you should always utilize your resources.
