Not too easy. Not too difficult.
What I liked about the course: My professor seemed like he knew the information well, and we spent a lot of time in class actually working out the problems. As someone who isn't great at math, I loved that I could practice with my classmates. Having the opportunity to take through the problems with a group really helped me to understand and remember the material. What I didn't like: The book! It was very confusing and didn't seem very well organized. We spent a lot of the class using printed worksheets, and while they were much more helpful than the book, it was a challenge to keep track of all of them! Also, it would have been nice if my grade on my final exam was posted online like it was in some of my other classes.
We talked about probability (we rolled dice in class), mutually exclusive events, intersections and unions, the fundamental counting principle, permutations, combinations, and lots of different rules. I thought it was interesting when we talked about different charts and what data they represent.

Advice for students:
1. Have a folder or a binder where you keep all of your notes and past assignments together. Don't ever throw anything away. 2. Sit down and read and revise your notes and start on the homework as soon as you can. It's easier to do when the information you learned in class is still fresh.
