    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The pace is great, the professor is very helpful, answers every question, and will explain things more than once, and because it's summer the class size is pretty small, so there's extra time to go over material.

    Course highlights:

    Algebra review, inequalities, functions, logarithms and exponential equations/ functions, trigonometry, graphing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Being in class is the most important, because it can be a challenge to learn math material alone and without being able to talk to someone who already understands it. Completing the assigned homework is also vital to success, because practice makes permanent. Another thing that is helpful is making use of the notecard the professor gives out for each test. Even if you don't ever reference it during the test simply making it may help you study.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend it, because of the way this material was taught and the office hour unavailability.

    Course highlights:

    Math is very difficult to learn, she really helped any person that was struggling by giving extra credit. This class has made me learn just the beginning of Calculus. It contained a lot of trigonometry and algebraic equations.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to keep up in this course. If you fall behind it is hard to ever catch up.
