    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't recommend this class if you plan on going into a field heavy in mathematics. What I recommend instead is that instead one should study on their own accord to test into a higher math class. I personally regret taking the slow crawl through the years.

    Course highlights:

    In this course If I remember correctly, as all the math classes blend together now in my minds eye, I learned about different algebraic manipulations with a highlight on functions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In any course that uses Pearson's mylabsplus I recommend going out on your own accord to work out problems. I say this because the homework sets are far too easy and often you don't even have to write anything down. This style cannot be conducive to learning in my opinion.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend Roger Kadalas' MATH 103 class at the University of Hawai'i at West O'ahu campus because his teaching method was very effective and he even mentions in the beginning of the course that he's not trying to making you just memorize information, but learn the actual concepts behind them that can be applied to real world situations. He always went over the problems to make sure there was no confusion and he was also a pretty funny professor with his anecdotes that he'd tell every so often.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course for me was when we'd learn something new that I've never seen prior in any of my previous math courses from high school and I'd be able to grasp the new concept. Learning was basically the highlight for me and it's an unexplainably amazing and self gratifying feeling that washes over me when I'm able to apply new material and concepts learned esp. in the math field.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO THE HOMEWORK! He assigns a fair amount of homework after every class and it's very beneficial for you to do it as you'll get practice with the new material and it counts for 10% of your grade.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you haven't taken college algebra before Donna Harbin is a great professor at UHMC (University of Hawai'i Maui College) in Kahului, Maui, Hawai'i.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of the course was being able to perform Quantitative Theory at a higher level.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You will get as much out of it as the amount of work you put into it. If you fail to put work into such a tough class for older people like myself that didn't have as much algebra in our early days, you will be in for a rude awakening unless you commit yourself. If you are like most kids nowadays with plenty of algebra background you should do fine.
