Course Overview:
I would highly recommend this Fast track class to any student who is willing to put in work and who does not slack off and is on top of their homework. In this class you will learn around 2 chapters in a week or so and then you will be tested for these chapters. This class comes with an online program called EdReady where you get extra help assistance and goes over the whole chapter section by section and it provides practice problems, review tests, and a unit test to help you. Professor McClendon is an amazing instructor she will always push you into asking her questions on the content you don't understand, if you go up to her she will help you, she cares very much about her students and she provides study groups sometimes. However, there is a lot of work but nothing that you cannot finish, she goes over the homework during class and if you have a question on any problem she will do it up on the board step by step.
Course highlights:
I gained a lot of time management skills in this course. I was able to break out of my shell and ask all the question necessary during class on things I was unclear about.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
If you're going to take this course be ready to not slack off on your homework, do all of your EdReady video notes because they do help, review on the site and ask questions.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I do not have any preference on whether you should or shouldn't take the class, but I do HIGHLY suggest that you do NOT take this class early, 7 a.m. to be exact. Now I grew up loving math, it was my favorite subject, so math is no foreign subject to me. But this course can get VERY fast paced and somewhat confusing very early in the course. So I HIGHLY suggest that you: A, IF YOU'RE NOT A MORNING PERSON DON'T TAKE MORNING CLASSES, and B, do your homework. I slacked on a few homework assignments, thinking it wouldn't matter to my overall grade. Wrong. See I realized only after my grade had been dropping so much, that homework really does mean a lot. I saw that well if I'm not doing the math homework, how can I be prepared for the tests? So I ended up doing poorly on some tests so homework is extremely important to keep up with.
Course highlights:
Personally, I gained exactly what I stated before. Homework matters, no matter how little you think it may be worth. Taking a big step back and seeing the whole picture, homework is just as important as coming to class.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
My advice to all students about to take Math 131, would be to one, not take early classes, two, make sure you have a teacher you can easily understand and get along with, and lastly, DO YOUR HOMEWORK!!
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Professor Gallup is hands down the best math professor I've ever had. He explains things thoroughly and genuinely cares about his students. He makes sure that all students are on the same page before moving on and leaving anyone behind. He will even use his spare time to help students study and master the lessons.
Course highlights:
I learned more about math and myself than I ever expected. I learned I loved math! And I absolutely despised it before. Specifically, I learned about graphing lines and the quadratic formula. I learned about irrational numbers (i) and how to solve equations with 2 or 3 variables.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Don't get discouraged! Take it a little at a time. And do not be afraid to ask for help. The worst thing you can do to yourself is be afraid to ask for help.
