I enjoyed the course. I think the toturial is well organized and the concepts are clearly explained by the instructors. I think algebra in context are great content to guide the learners to apply math skills in real life situation. I wish more contents in context could be added in each concept. By doing that, learners could gain a better understanding about theories. Anyway overall, the course is excellent.

By far the most difficult class I've taken online. Tutorials are not clear and they do not provide like examples to what was on tests and milestones.
Sophia replied on May 4, 2017

Hi Kisha— Congratulations on your successful course completion! Yes, this is a challenging college-level course. The tutorials are designed to help you apply the concepts to the assessment questions, so the problems you see on the tests will not be identical to those in the lessons. However, our Learning Coach team is here to support you if you need help working through a problem. Congratulations again on earning these credits!

If you are looking for a easy course this is not for you. It took time, effort and dedication. You get out of it what you put into it and for me it was very rewarding and I learned some valuable math skills.

Discourse needs better step by step instructions. Introducing the concept that is advanced math formulas that have not been discussed or talked with the learner frustrated and requires much more time to understand concepts. Into consistently search for information that should have been covered distracts from the learning experience

There was no one available to help with questions easily. The answer guide for the practices didn't provide real solutions for how to solve.

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 course also includes written assignments, called Touchstones, that also contribute to your overall score.)

    Sophia courses are graded on a pass/fail basis. No letter grade is issued for a completed course.
  • 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.
