    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Math is a prerequisite for many courses and algebra for college students is a great introductory math course that uses previously learned topics and incorporates them with new topics, and is not hard to grasp due to some of the information being covered beforehand. Students will be able to get comfortable with algebraic topics in order to move forward with harder math courses.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the quizzes, because in my course, we had to take a prerequisite quiz over and over again until we achieved a 70% or higher, which made us familiar with the information and allowed me in particular to always get an A or a B on the actual quiz. I learned many algebraic topics, from functions to factoring.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to learn a lot of algebraic concepts, some of which may be familiar and a lot of which will be new, but do not be afraid to take practice quizzes and work with other students to familiarize yourself with the material before tests. Ask your professor whenever you have a question and take advantage of extra credit opportunities.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend the course with this professor because he really helps you pass. He doesn’t just give you points, he makes you work for them but he makes several opportunities to earn extra points to make sure your grade is passing. If the professor sees things that you’re struggling with, he talks to you one on one to see if there is anything he can help you with to make sure you actually understand the material.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course were the fact that the professor really wanted you to succeed so he did everything to make sure you understood the material. He was vey generous in extra credit which helped people pass with A+. From this course I learned that if you don’t understand a lesson or topic to ask for help right away and not to wait because it will catch up with you fast.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise perspective students to know that they have to put in a lot of work and effort, there is a lot of homework but it really makes you understand the lessons that are being taught and it prepares you very well for the tests. I also advise students to ask questions right away if they are confused on anything. Luckily this professor stops and asks is anything unclear, do I need to re-word anything for you guys to understand this stuff?
