    | Would not recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mona baarson showed favoritism and would accept other students late work but not mine when I was away at a competition. Wouldn't respond to emails. Pretty much on my own. Plus she was always late and kept class over

    Course highlights:

    After crashing and burning I taught myself advanced calculator functions

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take it with mona baarson. And really work hard and get a tutor if you need to. I'm an honor student and still need tutoring sometimes

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Erik Brown is extremely motivated to help students learn the material. He is very animated and gives meaningful feedback. If that helps you to learn then that's the ticket.

    Course highlights:

    Erik Brown's motivation was a definite highlight.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The speed of the course forced me to learn how to keep up. I passed with a 4.0. You must do everything you can to complete all the home work on time. If you get too far behind it's impossible to catch up and that is demoralizing. If you aren't mathematically inclined take advantage of all the tutor sessions, you can. The whole point is to learn the overall concept of the type of problem you are studying. Math has its own language. Learn how to think and speak in that language. That will go a long way in understanding the concepts. Find people who are more competent than you and learn from them. Most important; always ask the questions you are afraid to ask. It doesn't matter if someone thinks you look stupid. they’re not responsible for your grade. If someone is disparaging you for trying to learn they don't deserve any academic respect themselves. I have some natural talent but, I asked a lot of questions and went to a lot of the tutor sessions, plus Erik brown's office hours. I struggled just like most who seek a 4.0 grade. The point is, I got that 4.0 in college algebra using the methods I've detailed.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    As a Freshman this is the hardest math class to get into. I am excited to be in it but it is hard and you have to be very mathematical technique. I highly recommend this math class if you are not going into any math career.

    Course highlights:

    What I gained in math class was more intellectual math skills. In high school the math was different now it is harder to achieve a 3.0 in the class. But if you study hard and do the work good things will come.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Have a graphing calculator, good pencils, paper. and lots of self motivation!
