Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
I have never experienced a math course thinking it could be exciting and painless until I attended a class with my amazig professor. He has a simple "step-by-step" teaching strategy -- tied in with some dry humor that makes understanding math a piece of cake.
Course highlights:
The highlights of this course was the professor telling us prior to coming to class that we were going to cover the most challenging subject in math. The class including myself, freaked out and debated whether showingup would be ewuivalent to death. However, when we showed up he showed us how to use crammer's rule with matrices in 3 basic steps. The class laughed hysterically because the "modt challenging" subject in math was seemingly easier than anything we've done all semester. The message to take from that is we all have our fears in life whether it be a math problem or not but once we find the courage to take them head on we eventually will overcome them.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
If you want to spend the least amount of time possible studying while receiving a good grade for this course I suggest utitlizing your resources. There is a math depot and learning center on each valencia campus that remain open during the week. If you can't stay on campus there is also help online through the website tutoring. If all else fails, there are an infinite number of Youtube and Khan-Academy videos on the internet that will aid in your success. Ultimately, taking advantage of these resources daily for as little as 30 minutes will save you from the "last minute" 12 or more hours of cramming.
