    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mymathlab is an amazing tool, if rather Khan Academy like.

    Course highlights:

    Discussion boards are lively, and Carl is comfortable using source and materials beyond the book to explain a point.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Watch the Khan Academy videos that are shared, they really do explain very well.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher can only explain her lessons one way, and gives little help when asked outside of the study groups. Homework is tedious time-consuming without any real benefits besides learning to cheat the automated system and get right answers without learning the concepts.

    Course highlights:

    Most of what I learned in this course was identical to my sophomore year Algebra II class, with graphing equations, conic sections and a very quick dip into matrices; nothing really stood out.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try to find a different teacher if you can. Rita is a lovely person, but she has a 30-something-percent failure rate for a reason.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anybody, even if they aren't going into a profession with direct math correlation. This course provides many tools that can be used in the future. The only reason I wouldn't rate this course five-stars is because there is one unit with logarithms that isn't going to be very helpful in your future unless you always have a calculator and remember all the formulas.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of this course was the functions unit. This is a unit where you are taught equations that you can apply to all aspects of your life. Here you learn how to find an expected or known profit based on cost and revenue. You also learn how to find better deals on pricing. This is a great unit to start the course with and helps you get into the mode of things.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    When going into this course always set aside time to work on this class specifically. The time between units varies but on average, you have only a couple of weeks to complete 17-18 hours of homework. Also, in that time you need to take a quiz and study for the exam. Spreading this out daily makes the course easier to go through.
