This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course for freshmen , because the teacher realizes that everyone learns differently, and he teaches or instructs each student accordingly.
Course highlights:
The highlight of this course was, I thought that I had to only rely on the lecture , but my instructor allowed me to use the Math book (even though I was the only one using it ) and he did not treat me as though I was not as intelligent as the rest of the class because of it He encouraged me to use whatever tools I needed to succeed in the class, and by the way, I passed with an A
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
My biggest advise for any course is to ask questions with no apology.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Dr. Hupert was tough in class but taught fairly. I went to her office hours after every single class to get additional help and found that she was extremely helpful. She gave plenty of extra examples and took the time explain in detail the topics that I was struggling with the most.
Course highlights:
It is a pre-calculus math course that helped me perform better in my upper level math courses. It also taught me how important and easy it is to go to office hours even if you are initially intimidated by the professor.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
the daily quizzes are tough but if you make an effort to do the homework and review your notes they're not all bad. The tests are mainly based on the quizzes and the homework and if you need extra examples go to tutoring and office hours (i cannot stress that enough- the office hours were SO SO helpful)
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
Perfectly-paced class. Designed for students to succeed as long as they do the work. Some background knowledge would be helpful but the professor does a refresher while teaching just in case. Tests are exactly like the quizzes so students also know what to expect!
Course highlights:
The biggest highlight of this course was definitely the professor's dedication to the learning and clarification of the students and also all the homework being counted as extra credit at the end of the semester. I learned the basics of pre-calculus and will be able to carry them on to my next course!
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
I would definitely tell incoming students to apply themselves to class and the homework and build a connection with the professor to help you with any questions or concerns you may have. If you follow these suggestions, you should be well off for the course.
