Not too easy. Not too difficult.
For those who are not math majors, this math class is great in taking care of your required math credit and filling your schedule with something interesting. Each unit focused on something that we could actually apply to life and was not overly hard once you got the gist of the lesson. Every unit also had a group project that had to be worked on before the test. The group projects ranged in difficulty, depending on how well all the people worked together.As long as you know simple math and can use a calculator, you should be fine. Oh, and do the homework. That'll really help you out as well.
The first lesson we did was on loans . Throughout the unit, we learned how to plan on making payments on mortgages and what those little rates all mean. This unit helped me better understand how loans work and how rates can really effect on how much you pay on top of the initial amount taken out. Other units were fun and always brought back to what is happening in the world. We learned how voting works and how counting can be rigged to favor a certain candidate. Another unit helped figure out chances in lotteries and the like. This was probably one of the most valuable courses I have taken so far.

Advice for students:
Do the homework, no matter how tedious it seems. Also, make sure you look over what you did in the lesson and the group homework. Usually every test had something similar to the group homework. If you do not understand something, make sure to ask the professor or one of your group members. Most likely, that one question you had will end up on the test,
