This class was tough.
Course Overview:
The course was 3 hours long during the night so it could be difficult to sit through especially when professor Popovici would lecture almost the entire time. It's a little difficult to keep up with but the homework assignments weren't too bad. She does given you some extra credits for showing up 80% of the time. There's no quizzes since it's accelerated, every exams is 10 questions including the final.
Course highlights:
I learned a lot more about functions and understanding set relations with each other. Solving functions, absolute values, and graphing. Inequalities, quadratic, completing the square, and solving systems of linear and non-linear functions.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Do your homework and then practice the practice problems. Go through the examples in your textbook, and then look up videos on how to solve different problems as a memory refresher since you go through so much content at once. Review your exams that you get back to see what you did wrong and how to fix it.
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)
