Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Located at the Mathematical Sciences Learning Laboratory, the classroom is set up in a way that optimizes learning with state-of-the-art technology and large projectors around the room. The curriculum is research-based and the professors are compiling and analyzing performance data every year to improve the course.
Course highlights:
The ALEKS software allows students to complete homework, see practice problems, and take formative assessments online and it allows students to go at their own pace, although there is a recommended pace at which students should complete homework assignments. The lessons are straightforward and the offices for all of the professors are located in extremely close proximity to the classroom as MSLL serves as a one-stop shop for all your mathematical learning needs.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Work with your group members, complete the classwork packets and ALEKS assignments. Try to read and work ahead so that you are better prepared.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I had extreme difficulty with this course. I would say the most frustrating aspect of this course was the disconnect between what we learned in class and what was on the exams.
Course highlights:
I learned that taking math at this university is not the best idea, most math courses are not recommended because of the professors. It is recommended by some students to take math courses at other schools over winter/summer sessions and have the credits transferred.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
If you are good at calculus then you should not be worried. However, if you are not strong in math, be prepared to seek help outside of the classroom or take the course somewhere else.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Great teacher, he is very compassionate and makes the class very easy for the student to get a good grade.
Course highlights:
Taking the class at 7:30 was not the best, but the professor lives very close to campus so I would see him walking to class every once in a while.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Get the homework done ahead of time.
