This class was tough.
Course Overview:
The professor did an excellent job of explaining the material and I learned much more about various relationships in math that came back when I took Calc 1 Honors.
Course highlights:
There were several highlights, but one of them was when the professor showed how exponential equations can be used in real life. As such, I will never take the lump sum if I win the lottery.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
If you have the time, take the full semester option. As with most classes, an A or B term semester simply gives to much information at one time.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
The material is hard but taught very well. Professor Goddard is very helpful and explains things well.
Course highlights:
I gained a better understanding of precalc. I learned some different ways to use simple algebra to solve complex algebra.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
The homework is a small part of your grade but if you dont do it you will probably fail. Its a lot of repetition, but you learn it that way.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
The teacher is great, the class is based on all exams. If you do your homework (which you should), it offers 5% extra credit for each test. If you do your homework the tests will be easy.
Course highlights:
Professor Rickman does a great job of relating the behaviors of all basic functions and their properties (especially in regards to graphing). Once you finish his course, graphing functions should be very fluid, allowing you to become comfortable with graphing more 'upper level' functions, especially in trigonometry.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Do the homework, take advantage of the extra credit!
