    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Essien will go above and beyond to make sure that you are more than 100% ready for any test or exam you have. He is very thorough and ready for even the toughest challenge. When I had him a few years ago I was very shy when it came to math. But when I took that class my shyness went away and I was not afraid to go up to the board and write my answers or answer question about the material. Hope Essien is a force to be reckoned with and he deserves a teacher of the year nomination.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot. I was terrible at math, now I enjoy it. I never understood Z-score or how to do a bell shaped curve but he went above and beyond to make sure that I knew what I was doing, and even then he would still check up on me to make sure that I was still understanding the subject or if I remembered how to the those things.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Really listen to him. He is full of knowledge that if you miss out on you are hurting yourself. Also don't be on your phones for the same reason that I just mentioned. Another thing is to always ask questions no matter how insignificant you think it is.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Now, I've never been one with numbers. The logic of math always seems to be just outside my grasp. I see the logical steps of achieving the answer, but many times an invisible wrench gets thrown into my mind and sets me off-course. Dr. Essien really broke down mathematics for me. He was able to take it down to the level where, hey!, I was actually getting it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned (and retained) more about math in this class then in any other class I took. I actually learned how to work through a problem and why the steps were taken to solve it. I wasn't just given a formula and told, "Well, it just solves it." Dr. Essien really made it so I could grasp it, and the reasoning behind the solution. It definitely wasn't an easy class, but it made me appreciate math more then I ever thought I could.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Advice I would give is: don't fall behind. It's a tough class and a cumulative one so the more you fall behind the harder it is to catch up. I would also say that Dr. Essien really will take his time to help you out if you sees that you are trying.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you grew up hating math, you'll end up loving it, thanks to Ms. Sherman. She'll give you the help you need, she builds up your self esteem, and rewards your hard work.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to do not only simple math, but also formulas in my head.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Never miss an opportunity to get ahead in your work, ask if there's anything more you should do once you finish something.
