Background Knowledge Expected
Math-heavy
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because the instructor is very helpful and when there is a misunderstanding among the students, he finds another way for us to interpret the material. He also connects real life situations to the mathematical problems and shows us that the material s useful.
Course highlights:
I learned how to effectively but also efficiently use math to solve everyday math issues I will inevitably come into contact with. From basic financial lessons to even understanding proportions I have gained a better appreciation for math.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
I would advise prospective students to practice the problems and ask questions regardless of the feeling of embarrassment.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This professor was excellent at explaining ways to remember the various kinds of equations. On lab days, students are encouraged to call out which math problems they were unable to complete due to difficulty and the professor showed the students how to work it out on the board.
Course highlights:
I learned how to calculate compound interest and to solve logarithms. The highlights were being able to apply real life events to math problems.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure to stay on top of the online assignments, the more problems that you get right, the better it will be for your overall grade at the end of the semester.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I took College Algebra online due to my work schedule, and because of this it was extremely challenging. Professor Rodski did a wonderful job of communicating regularly with the class and offering support. I realized early on that the course would be difficult, and implemented a strict study schedule, which I adhered to throughout the semester. This was the main factor that contributed to my overall success in the class. My main recommendation would be to learn and make use of the graphing calculator. I was not familiar enough with the functions to utilize it properly.
Course highlights:
The obvious educational objective was to learn and apply complex math, including linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic and piecewise functions; systems of equations; and an introduction to analytic geometry. . Outside of the course objectives I learned that I can overcome challenges and succeed.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
My advice would be to set a strict study schedule and adhere to it. Dedicate time every day, free of interruptions and distractions, to practicing problems. I also suggest regular communication with your instructor, and most certainly ask for help! Learn to use the graphing calculator that is allowed in the course as it will be infinitely helpful.
