Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Intermediate algebra is my favorite type of algebra (if I'm forced to choose), because once you understand the concepts, formulas, and the like. It is very enjoyable and will make you feel like the boss at math!
Course highlights:
The highlights of this course were definitely radicals and imaginary numbers. They're so complex, that when you get the hang of them, it's very satisfying. I learned how algebraic equations can be used in real life applications such as driving, boating, and building.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
In order to succeed you need to pay attention in class and ask questions. Also, it is very helpful to complete the homework the night you are assigned because everything is still fresh in the brain.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
The professor for this class has online videos that offer further explanation of course material. As far as I know, no other math professor at this particular school offers this feature.
Course highlights:
The highlights of this course was the teaching style of the professor. Algebra is not a subject I'm interested in but it was a prerequisite to stats and the professor made the course palatable!
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Each day time needs to be put aside to go over material and do homework. If I could retake course, I would spend at least an hour or two going over material learned on a daily basis. Especially if this class is taken in the summer, it's imperative to study daily. Attending all lectures is important and to ask questions as soon as you're stuck. Sometimes I didn't want to slow down the class or no one else asked questions so I felt uncomfortable asking questions but now I regret that.
