Math 175 is a very involved and intense course. In order to do well
and succeed, you must be willing to set aside time every night to work on
problems. With quizes every Thursday, it is crucial that you keep up
with materials and prepare. These quizes, whether you do poorly or well,
are good examples of what is to come on the exams. Even if you do poorly
on the quiz, be sure to master the problems prior to the upcoming exam. Don't
fall behind on the work because it adds up very quickly and it is hard to
recover from a poor exam score. The work is difficult, but there are
many resources to assist you in achieving your goal.
Dr. Hoar has created several sources to ensure students are capable of getting help. There is a tutor lab, web activities, Tuesday Night Review Sessions, as well as help from Dr. Hoar himself. Granted as college students we don't always have the time, but I would strongly recommend that you attempt to use these sources. Personally I found the web activities to be valuable, as they offerred a different perspective from Dr. Hoar's and sometimes made things clear. Be sure to get into a routine with your MTH 175 homework as well as attending review sessions or the lab. These resources are there to help, don't be intimidated to ask for help.
