Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This course has been incredibly helpful as a Mathematics course. Prof. Fitch is wonderful and teaches in a way that is very insightful.
Course highlights:
In this course I learned Intermediate Algebra. The highlights were that the class was taught in such a way that it forces you to truly learn the material.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Don't give up on his teaching style. A few weeks in things will be far easier and you will be on your way to conquering the subject.
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this class because it is the gate-way for all the math you will need, no matter how high of a course you are intending going.
Course highlights:
I learned how to look at Inequalities, Graphs, Linear Equations, and much more. If you already know all lot of math, but need a refresher, I highly recommend.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Take notes! She does post online, but, what good does it do if you don't remember what she is talking about. So many times, she will add extra things into the notes.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
You can tell professor Harman really loves math! He makes every class period exciting with his jokes, and the way he teaches. With him, there is no dumb question and he is willing to set aside time to help you succeed in his class.
Course highlights:
Professor Harman was very relaxed about his course, which made it less of a stressor. He would extend homework deadlines, as well as give re-takes on tests you didn't do well on. From his class, I learned that it is 100% possible to learn math from a professor in class, as well as use an online program to submit homework. He would lecture during the hour and fifteen minute class time, and then require homework to be delivered on a program called Aleks. I thought it was a very effective way of teaching us math as well as allowing us to use technology to learn it on our own time away from class.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
This course isn't easy, and at the beginning of the semester professor Harman will tell you 50% of the students sitting in the class will either fail or drop the class. To take this class, you must take notes, you must do the homework, and you must practice the problems aside from the homework. It is very easy to get behind on a online homework program, but doing some for at least an hour every day will help you stay on track.
