There were several times where there was a mathematical symbol used with no explanation of what it meant
by Christopher B. on July 17, 2019
I thought it would be easy due to the challenges but this is actually a hard class and requires much studying.
by Melissa R. on July 16, 2019
This was by far the most difficult course to follow. The tutorials and examples given did not match how they were asking you to solve each question. At times, you had to answer incorrectly just to be able to see a break down of how you needed to solve the equation, since no good example was shown.
by Caitlin N. on July 16, 2019
definitely challenging. My only request from this course is to show many different ways to solve the question, rather than just one way with a scientific calculator. other than that, this class definitely kept me on my toes and I am very blessed to have passed.
by Savannah B. on July 15, 2019
challenging, but easy enough to learn the material
by Carnolds P. on July 14, 2019
Learned a lot!! :) very easy to follow
by Thomas M. on July 13, 2019
I found this course to be exceptionally challenging, especially the final milestone. I would like to suggest that besides the glossary and tutorials being listed, that all the formulas also be listed with a brief description to provide students to refer back to during exams. I know some are listed under each unit glossary but one with all of them listed so student don't need to remember what unit to go back to to find the right one. In all, this was a great learning experience.
by Jairo G. on July 11, 2019
This course was extremely difficult. The videos did help alot but I'm mostly thankful to God for helping me through this course.


  • 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.
