Advice for students:
Participate in class, do your best, ask questions!
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Algebra isn't about numbers, its about rules and manipulation. Algebra quickly became a favorite class of mine because as long as one learns the rules then everything else is easy. It is actually one of the higher maths that is applicable in real life situations and can save a bit of time. I enjoyed manipulating the signs and operations to get the outcome I needed. I highly recommend it because of the enjoyable aspect of algebra, but also because of its usefulness.
Course highlights:
By taking Algebra all other maths that followed, especially geometry became easier. Arithmetic is the foundation for algebra and algebra is the foundation for many other maths and sciences. I enjoyed the story problems most of all because I had to combine logic with what I knew to be true about algebra to come up with a mathematically sound result. It was almost like solving a puzzle or a mystery.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
I'd have to say that you should work every problem out with the teacher. Copy all of the problems that they have up on the board. When you discover a problem is incorrect, figure out what the problem was and fix it so that it doesn't happen again. Notes are the best study aid. And also memorize the orders of operation and any formulas you are given along with all of the roots and squares of the numbers 1-100.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.

Course highlights:

Advice for students:
Study groups are helpful because if a problem does not make sense to you, someone else may clearly understand it and be able to help you.
