This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course to every math hater. The course isn't meant to be easy. Its a common misconception that high school algebra is the same as college algebra, but it isn't. I struggled in this class and I absolutely hate it, but when I was taking my pSAT I sized through both my math sections and struggled in English. This is because the class is based on mostly class work. In class you're put in groups, for the rest of the year, and you do group work so that everyone stays engaged and learns. On the quizzes, the work is divided in sections and you only do a specific section if you want to improve your grade on the section. I love the sense of freedom and ease in learning which is why I recommend this class to everyone including math haters!
Course highlights:
The highlights of the course were the homework. The homework isn't graded and is meant for the students benefit. So instead of rushing and in some cases looking up answers, which we've all done, I took my time to understand and work through a math problem. I meant how to solve imaginary number equations and complex radical equations and also how to graph them on a graph as points or a line as a expression.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
ENROLL! College isn't meant to be easy. I certainly didn't expect this vigor when I signed up for dual enrollment, but I'm glad I did because I improved on my previous pSAT scores and I qualify for more scholarships as well. Math goes a long way.
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.
