    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I'm not very good or fond of math, but Ms. Skinner is amazing! I would recommend taking this course even if people tend to be more of a language arts person like myself, because she is extremely kind and helpful.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned more about math than I had known before. I learned about logarithms, functions, and the course also taught me how important it is to have a good relationship with a teacher, especially in subjects that are a struggle.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Utilize office hours and make sure to do the homework. Both of those will help cultivate the knowledge learned in class and give it practical application that will be used on the tests. Also, don't be afraid to ask for help. Suffering in silence will hurt, not help a grade.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class was a general overview of simple mathematical concepts and the teacher helped as best she could to make sure everyone understood the topics.

    Course highlights:

    The best topics from this class would be how to use graphical calculators as this knowledge will be needed for future math and economic classes.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study the material and go to class everyday. Other than that simply go to tutoring and ask as many questions as you need answered.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    To be honest, if you didn't need to take this class I wouldn't recommend it but if you need it to move on like I did then I absolutely recommend taking it with Professor Goodrich. In my school this math class is one of the most failed classes in the entire school. I unfortunately fell into that group during the fall quarter. I don't like blaming professors but sometimes you just don't understand the way they teach. This was the case with my math professor during winter quarter. It felt like she was talking gibberish. Professor Goodrich taught in a way that I understood and I felt like she really did help me. I had very bad test anxiety and she advocated for me and got me extra time on exams. She really went beyond for me. My advice to anyone taking this course or any course is to talk to your professors. If you are struggling with the material let them know and ask questions and go to office hours. More often then not professors are willing to help you out.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a new way of studying math. By going to my professors office hours and talking to her about how I was struggling in the class she helped me figure out better ways to study. I was averaging 6-8 hours of studying math per day. She told me to put some problems on flashcards to help retain the information I learned during class.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Absolutely talk to your professor! I cannot stress that enough. Go to office hours, ask questions, if you are struggling you need to talk to your professor. Also creating small weekly study groups helps as well. If your school has a tutoring center take full advantage of it. I averaged over 190 log ins and over 200 hours since September.
