    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor breaks down the criteria to where it is very easy to learn and understand.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was the time out of class. The homework was moderately difficult enough to challenge students to perform better when it was time to take the exam.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do your homework in this class and you'll pass the class with ease.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Honestly, I don't necessarily recommend Algebra to anyone unless they have to take it, but the reason that I'd recommend this course is because of the professor. He had a very good way of teaching it, relating the things that we learned in the class to real-world situations such as inflation and investments. He also allowed open-book tests and quizzes, and that we could take the tests twice. His focus was on the fact that we learned what we were doing, rather than jumping through it like students typically do. He was committed to us and did whatever he could to help us reach the best grade we could get. He also wasn't afraid to answer questions that we had or address comments about lessons and assignments. I'd say that it was a blessing to be able to work with him that year, since math is my hardest class and I needed someone supportive to get through it.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were the discussion boards that were being used. The algebra class that I took was based online, and the interaction with the other students involved posting to discussion boards throughout the semester. The topics for the discussion boards were inflation, investment, and if your future investments would be able to meet the demands of inflation. Although the focus of the class was on algebra, the professor made a big effort to teach us about investing our money and savings. I learned that investments are quite a big deal in the long run, and that what might not seem like much now will eventually grow to be something substantial. Once I get an income of some sort, I'm going to deposit money into an investment and try to discipline myself to keep doing that.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I do not know what your experience with math is, or what version of this algebra class you will be taking, but the biggest part of it is the fear. Math has a way of striking terror into people, because it's a language that is hard to understand. It's also foundational, meaning that it requires knowledge of older math concepts to work better. If you are having a problem with algebra, it wouldn't be a bad idea to take some kind of remedial math class or find a place where you can learn the difficult concepts of past math classes before taking it. Above all, do NOT put off math class. Every degree requires a college math class, and if you are someone that doesn't like math or aren't good at it, then it's a good idea to just work on it and get it out of the way so that you aren't dreading it for the rest of the year. It also helps to have a great professor too!
