    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Lavorgna is a very good teacher. He really knows his stuff. Everything I was able to master everything I needed to learn for the class fairly easily.

    Course highlights:

    I gained an understanding of advanced Algebra that my high-school teach had rather failed to teach me. In particular, many topics, such as graphing parabolas, that I remembered covering, but failing to understand in high-school became crystal clear in this course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you get your homework done in a timely matter, preferably immediately after the class. Don't be afraid to ask questions either in class, or afterwords.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course because the techniques in which Dr. Leroux uses is phenomenal. She mainly just does notes through the hour and assigns us homework that is not due until two classes after.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot through this course. Taking algebra two in high school did not teach me anything. I am always reminded by equations and all when Dr. Leroux is teaching them, yet this is also all new to me.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest to just take all the notes provided and pay attention during class. Any studying tips would be to do extra problems in the homework assigned.

    | Would not recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Schantz was inconsistent with in her classes and ninety percent of the time unprepared. The only thing she kept consistent and, without a doubt, reoccurring was her "After Test" speech about previously teaching students with brain damage who "scored better than us". I do not recommend this Professor for those who are serious and interested in Math, as well as those who just need it to graduate.

    Course highlights:

    One highlight to this specific course and how it was taught was how I learned to take notes and read a text book on my own. Although you could say I was forced to, it was an aspect of my studying that I lacked previously.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you can't get out, don't panic too much. It is what it is, but it's very important that you read up on your own and go in your own direction when it comes to taking notes and solving problems.
