UL Math courses
#1
Is there anyone who offers cheap ul math courses? Also, what is the cheapest way to get public speaking - or anything else that will fill TESU's communication requirement?

Most people like Presentation Skills from Study.com to fulfill the oral presentation requirement at TESU

A Study.com College Accelerator membership is $199/month and 2 exams are included.  So if you need another course (Study doesn't have any upper level math classes though) and you can do 2 classes in one month it would be $199

I'm in the middle of Coopersmith's Linear Algebra course. According to an adviser at TESU, it will transfer in as MAT-321.

The course consists of 9 modules for which there is a reading in the optional text book, several video lectures from YouTube and then a few practice problems. My experience so far has been that the video lectures alone are insufficient to give the student a good grasp of the material. I've been supplementing with LOTS of other videos on YouTube (3blue1brown, MIT Open CourseWare, Khan Academy, etc), and even then wondering if I should invest the $50 in the textbook. 100% of the grade is based on the final test with no quizzes other than the 8-10 practice problems at the end of each module. I'm finding it is a bit hard to get a good feel for how well I'm getting the material as I go along.

In working through the material, I've found several mistakes that I've reported. They do very well at responding and getting them fixed within the next day or so. They've also told me that I'm the first student to ever take the course, so I'm not surprised there are some issues.

Hie Jeff,

Thank you for the insights. I am thinking of enrolling myself but Coopersmith do not make this decision easy with the lack of information about their courses. What is the name of the textbook if I may ask?

Kind regards

I can't seem to find anywhere it states how many times you can retake to final if you happen to fail the first time. Does anyone know?
