    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Willett is one of the best professors I've ever encountered. He is a great lecturer, and the material is quite challenging, but he is also very fair. He is organized with his time and doesn't move too fast or too slow. I came away from this class loving trigonometry and excited about math.

    Course highlights:

    There was one big group project for the quarter that was really tough. We had to use trigonometry and simple, non-electronic equipment to determine the dimensions of some structures on campus. It was a big project, but it was also a great way to take math out of the classroom and apply it in an unforgettable way. The project helped me understand the concepts and see how they are useful in real life, not something that often comes out of a math class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is to keep good lecture notes, and really do memorize the unit circle. It will help all of the rest of your work in the class if you know that thing by heart. Stay up on the suggested homework. Even though it isn't graded, it will help you be prepared for exams and quizzes, so don't skip it.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Willett is an excellent professor. His lectures were very enjoyable and his class was challenging, but it makes you prepared for the higher math classes. Though homework was optional, it is helpful to do them in order to be successful of the quizzes that are given twice a week. Also, he provides many extra credit opportunities, I recommend taking them because again, the class is pretty difficult.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Willett was very humorous which made the class more engaged with his lectures. He was very organized and it was easy to keep up with what he was teaching. He provided a good base in how to be successful by teaching discipline with the optional homework and extra credit. This prepared me for other classes and helped me with my time management.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to work hard. Slacking off is not an optional and I recommend attending the study groups that are available. Do not wait last minute for studying and if you have questions, ask them! The more work you put in, the more prepared you will be coming out of it.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    i would recommend this class because it contains the basic information that you will need for calculus I, II, & III

    Course highlights:

    This class mainly deals with trigonometry. i learnt how trigonometry is used in real life situations for example using angles to determine the height of a building.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is important to practice this class every day because there are so many rules to learn.
