    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Math 1050 is the last step to Trigonometry (which is an amazing class!). We get to learn about all kinds of crazy functions, like the G-raph, Line-on, and The Beast, during our trip to the mathematical zoo. Sure, there's hard parts (the homework can take a lot of time and each question on the final is worth more than (>) 1% of your final grade), but as long as you stick with it, the class is actually pretty fun and every so often, you get that warm fuzzy feeling when you finally figure out a long problem, look back at your work and say, "I did that, all of it, on my own!"

    Course highlights:

    The biggest highlight in 1050 had to be that day in the last two weeks of class when I sat down at my desk, pulled out my homework scheduled, looked down at the neon yellow paper, and saw it. I'd finished everyone of the 80-some-odd assignments! It was almost a cathartic moment, getting to sit there and realize just how much I had accomplished in one semester, remembering how only a few months before I looked at that list and thought there was no way I'd make it through all those assignments in one piece. But I had! And it was amazing! That had to have been the best moment for me in Math 1050. (of course, there was also the time that I was the only to get a 100% on a test, but that's neither here nor there).

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do NOT procrastinate. If there is one sure fire way to fail this class, it's to do a half cooked job on the homework and not look at the test review until the night before the test. What ever work you get out of by not doing it now is so not worth the stress of sitting and staring at a problem on the final thinking "Did we even go over this?!" Because, every question is worth more than 1% of your final grade.
