Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
We all know we need arithmetic to pay our bills and make sure there are enough slices of pizza for everyone at our parties. Arithmetic is good for organizing and ordering. However, algebra is for dreaming and exploring. It is not only for mathematicians, algebra is found in art and music, science and medicine, engineering and athletics.
Course highlights:
We cannot always see or appreciate it, but algebra is part of our everyday life. For a mathematician, his beauty alone can make his study worthwhile. For the rest, algebra is important because it allows us to understand a complicated world and find creative and effective ways of describing and exploring our place in it.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Today, most jobs require more than a high school diploma, and many training and vocational programs require the same preparation skills needed to succeed in college. In fact, for students to finally succeed in the workplace, knowing how to think critically, solve problems and get along with others is as important as being able to read, write and calculate.
This class was tough.
