    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to students because it is fun and over all not that difficult. The course is based on your pace of work and the tests are fit just for you. The one difficulty in this class is the amount of hours you must spend on the course outside of class that can be a bit overwhelming. If you pace yourself though, the work load does not seem to be as much, but waiting until the last minute to do your work is not going to fly in this class.

    Course highlights:

    The main highlight of this course is how the work is fitted just for you. I learned the value of pacing my time and also using it very wisely. This course requires eight hours spent doing topics in and outside of class, and if you do not use your time wisely your Sunday afternoon isn't going to be much fun as you try to cram 5 hours of work in one day. Last, I learned a lot of mathematic topics to better educate me for future classes like calculus.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to students looking to take this course is to make sure you need to move on in your math career because this course is intended to be an entry into higher level topics. I also recommend spending about an hour a day on the material so that you are not cramming on a Sunday afternoon. Last, if you are struggling in the course definitely take to professor Cooper, he loves to help students and is very good at explaining challenging topics.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to college students because it is a great class to take during your first semester as a college student. You have to put in some work but it's not to the point where you are drowning in worry about the class. It's not that hard of a class as long as you stay up to date with the homework and attend class daily. The class is also great because it helps you get an understanding of what you will be learning in the higher math classes.

    Course highlights:

    There were 5 units in the 8 week course. You learn everything from logarithmic equations to plotting simple points. I learned a lot of the basic algebra skills that will help me in my future classes as a college student.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you want are going to take this course then you need to be committed. Stay up to date with the homework. if you start missing assignments they will start to build up and your grade will go down. For studying make sure you not only take classes during the lecture, but also use the books notes. i personally find it very useful to go through all the sections of a unit before a test to help me go over everything we learned.
