    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Math 116 is known to be a challenging course if one does not devote a lot of time to it. The homework is all online and the tests and quizzes will be in the math testing center. Homework is assigned every other night based on how many times a week your class is. You usually get two nights to complete one homework assignment before the next one is opened. For the homework, it usually ranges from 10-30 questions based on the unit you are doing, you have three tries to get the problem right before having to click on a new problem. You can do as many problems as you need in order to get the homework correct. On the right side of the problem being worked on it will say "give an example" clicking this will show you step by step how to complete the problem.

    Course highlights:

    One of the highlights of this course was the Tests, we took the tests in the testing center and after you submit them, it shows you what percent you got on the test. My teacher also looked over our work that we showed on paper during the test and almost always gave us at least 4-10% back, which enormously helps in the long run. I learned a lot of different math lessons that I had done in high school, but had completely forgot about. This class was a good leeway for going into another math class.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are considering this course I would advise you to be prepared to spend a lot of time doing the homework making sure you get 100% because there is no excuse since there is an unlimited number of tries. Also, the tests reviews are identical to the test, but with different numbers. If you study and do well on the review you are guaranteed to do well on the test.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this class. I learned so much and Ms. Billingsley really broke everything down and made it easy to understand.

    Course highlights:

    I learned all about functions and basic college algebra.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just pay attention and doing the homework really helped me. Not only did it help me to earn extra credit but I also could use it to refer back to when I was studying.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She is a very engaging professor. She doesn't tell you the answer and she won't reach out to you (for the most part and that's a good thing in this case), instead she will guide you and draw the answer out of you in a way that it will stick. Also, she will not approach you to see how you are doing because you are old enough to know when you need assistance. She will instead wait for you to ask for help and will happily come to your assistance.

    Course highlights:

    We did a lot of solving for x. Pretty simple tasks. We later moved to graphs which related back to the process we used to slove for x.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just be prepared to do the work. Do go in thinking you can slack off on hw and make it up on the tests or visa versa. It's one of those courses where hard work will be rewarded and laziness will be penalized.
