Great course. Very tricky and covered lots of concepts. It would have been better if workings were made part of Challenges and Practice Milestone answer explanations just like in Foundation of College Algebra Course.

The programs concept was okay. I didn't like how I was often tested on things that weren't mentioned in the tutorials. I also didn't like how on the pre quizzes/ modules test I didn't know how or what mistakes I made on my incorrect problems.

The feedback on questions was quick and descriptive enough to understand. Thank you for the detailed explanations, but the videos all had a green vertical stripe down one side that blocked most of the formulas and examples. This was aggravating. (I was using Firefox if that matters.) I also hope this 89 does not bring down my 4.0 too badly.

College Algebra was challenging but I must say I learned a lot from it. The challenges and milestones weren't overly difficult, but they did make you think. The tutorials were nice and helped out a lot, I personally used the Sophia tutorials the most.

FAQ

  • Q: Does Sophia accept third-party payment for tuition, such as financial aid or military benefits?
    A: Sophia courses are not eligible for most third party payment methods, and must be paid for by credit or debit card. Tuition is due at the time of course registration. Sophia offers both full and partial payment plans as part of the registration process.
  • Q: When do the courses start and how long do I have to complete a course?
    A: You choose your own start date and have 60 days to complete each course. However, because the courses are self-paced, you can complete them in fewer than 60 days.
  • Q: Where do I get the textbooks for my course?
    A: You do not need any textbooks for Sophia courses. All material is taught by video and text-based tutorials that are in the course room, and are included in the cost.
  • Q: How am I graded in the course?
    A: Your overall score is derived from how you do on two types of assessments: Challenges, which are formative assessments, and Milestones, which are summative assessments. Sophia’s English Composition I, Foundations of English Composition, and Public Speaking courses also include written assignments, called Touchstones, that also contribute to your overall score.
  • Q: How do I know which courses I should take?
    A: Consult with your academic adviser at your university to determine specifically which Sophia courses could fit into your program. You can download the course syllabus directly from our site to share with your school advisor.
