Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
The Pearson online video/workbook along with the workbook for note taking and homework is very helpful.
Course highlights:
I am still taking it. I am anxious to complete it and move on to the next portion of the math classes I will be taking towards me degree. Professor Eubank is wonderful with the information and feedback she is sending out.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
Ask for help and don't be nervous. I have been out of school for a long time--30+ years. I never enjoyed math, but entered with a positive attitude and a study plan. Stick to your study plan and keep the end goal in mind.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This online course is taught using videos from MyLabsPlus, which breaks the lessons down into easily digestible pieces. The ability to stop the video to take notes helps make the lesson understandable, and there are plenty of examples to practice the math problems.
Course highlights:
Math is a subject that strikes fear in my heart. I see letters mixed in with numbers and I start to panic. The way this course is set up, with the online videos, makes math less frightening to those suffering from math-phobia.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
Stay organized! When you master an equation, keep the step-by-step notes in a binder, labeled by week, so that you can refer back when you take a quiz and the final exam. Use every practice test available and take the test repeatedly until you're certain you have a good understanding. Math builds upon itself, so it's important to understand how to work through the problems.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I haven't taken a math class in over 30 years, and algebra was never my best subject. In fact, the idea of taking a math class was downright scary! The way this class is designed, it makes learning algebra so much less complicated than when I was in high school. It's online and the professor is available, but with the video lessons, it's been incredibly easy to understand what I once considered a foreign concept.
Course highlights:
This class has allowed me to learn and in some cases, relearn, the basics of algebra. Through interactive, required discussion board conversations with other online students, various ideas were shared as to how we could all best learn the concepts that we initially thought were overwhelming. Knowing others struggle with algebra, and that adding letters into equations struck fear in the hearts of others, helped me to not feel alone. I've become more organized so that I can review problems quickly and my grade is currently 92%!
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Stay organized by writing down the problems, referring back to them as needed, and asking as many questions as is necessary to ensure you understand each concept. Math builds upon itself, so it's not something you can gloss over and move on to the next section. Ask God to open your mind so that you can understand how to solve the problems.
