Self-Paced Independent Study Course vs. Online Course

July 23rd, 2014

Anyone know the difference?

Ace and I had a discussion on another thread and I figured this would be a question useful to most people, when answered, as they can both tend to have quite ambiguous interpretations.
it should be interested what change will this make

What\’s the campus like?

July 16th, 2014

Hey guys
I was wondering if anyone could give me some insight as to the layout of UA\’s campus. I looked at a map online and some virtual tour things, it seems there\’s a few small streets through the campus but overall it seems pretty clumped together. How big is the campus, like how long would it take to walk from one end to a far end? How close are most of the residential halls to most classes/lectures etc?
Overall would you describe the campus as spread out or clumped (not in a bad way, as in it\’s cohesive) and is there a clear sort of distinguishing feeling between being on campus and off campus?
if people only knew

2 on the APUSH Exam ?!

July 9th, 2014

I expected a 4 on my APUSH exam, but I got a 2. I maintained an A throughout the whole year and I got a 2. My teacher was also a really good teacher giving us Essays and DBQs to write. Sure the multiple choice tests was so much easier then the exams and he gave us the essay questions before hand, but I honestly feel like it\’s all my fault. I studied so hard for that test bought the books and even formed a study group. Most my friends got 4s and I\’m so ashamed of my score. I tried my best yet apparently it wasn\’t good enough. Is this test score a reflection of how I\’m going to do in school next year? I signed up for a lot of AP classes and think I can handle it. Is that thinking a delusion when giving this test my all had landed me a 2?
and i though i was the only one to see it this way

Precalculus during first semester

July 9th, 2014

I am a mechanical engineering major and I have a setback. I know that the average STEM major takes Calculus 1 their first semester of college since their major\’s curriculum is designed in a way where all the classes act like prereqs. for each other. At my university, engineering majors are required to complete a HUMONGOUS amount of ME courses. However, I was put in Precalculus for my first semester. Because of this, I am not permitted to also take Physics as well, due to Calculus 1 having concepts that are used in that course. In high school I took AP Calculus BC and AP Physics C in my junior year. However, like the other AP courses I took in high school, I didn\’t take any of the AP exams due to the cost of the exams and scheduling conflicts. According to my university\’s policy, the only way students can be placed in Calculus 1 is if they received a passing score on the AP exam or take the Precalculus prereq. they offer and get a passing grade in the class. Because of this, I technically will not be able to start the real engineering courses until my second year then. A few of my friends have suggested that after my first year, I should try to take Calculus 2 next summer so I can be caught up with the other ME students. Others have told me that I shouldn\’t since it would be extremely intense. Does anyone have any sort of advice as to what I should do?
I like this:)
