At the beginning of 1828 Charles headed to Cambridge. He found a place to live on  Sidney Street above a tobacconist's store. The summer of 1828 was spent in Barmouth,  Wales, with classmates from Cambridge. Their goal was to study with private tutors for  three months to allow Charles to focus on mathematics. But he soon found himself  taking solitary walks and leading group expeditions out into the countryside and along  the coast, showing his new friends at Cambridge all he know about insects and wildlife.  Meanwhile, the math languished. He continued to correspond on the subject of beetles  with his cousin William Darwin Fox, whom he visited towards the end of the summer. As  usual, he also made stops at Woodhouse, Maer, and the Mount. His doubts about his  willingness to commit himself to a religious life were increasing, but were not yet

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
