    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a pretty tough course if you're not the best math student. There is a lot of homework, class 3 times a week plus a 1.5 hour section once a week. The tests aren't bad but you should definitely study.

    Course highlights:

    It was fast paced and we got through a lot of material.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready for a lot of outside work. The professor isn't the nicest but she means well.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to anybody who needs to take Precalculus as a prerequisite because Professor Garaud was very kind and patient with her students. Her extensive knowledge in math and teaching made me comfortable knowing I was receiving the best lectures possible.

    Course highlights:

    I struggled with math in high school and although I took Precalculus my junior year, I had to retake it in college. It was mostly a refresher for me on all the topics covered in my high school class so I didn't learn a whole lot of new topics. However, I became more confident in my abilities to work through the more lengthy Precalculus problems after taking this class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I have truly struggled with any math class and I still do to this day. Thankfully, this was my first math class taken in college and it warmed me up to essential study habits I needed to develop. I would STRONGLY recommend going to any of the tutoring sessions available with the TAs. Always go to section whether you want to or not because the added practice will definitely boost your confidence when taking the exams. I even attended MSI section and it helped me greatly. I still see my tutor around campus and say hello to her!
