Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
The professor I had taught this course in such a way where understanding was beyond belief. I completely understood Linear Algebra, and enjoyed attending class each week.
Course highlights:
The engaging and interactive lessons were the highlights of this course. I learned everything that is Linear Algebra which also helped me in other courses on campus because I had such a strong understanding.
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
My advice for students enrolled in this course would be to attend class and pay attention.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Aside from that fact that you're probably required to take this course as an engineering student you should take linear algebra because it is the first math class that really shows you how abstract math can really be. You'll learn how to calculate things you already know how to do in whole new ways and gain an unexpected appreciation and understanding of math.
Course highlights:
At first linear algebra is intimidating even for people who aced calculus because it's completely new. Throughout the class you'll learn that a lot of the calculations can be done by anyone really. The complexity comes in the theories and abstract principals. You'll learn how to do things almost instantly that used to take several minutes and even stuff you never could calculate before.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Don't worry about your past math classes and whether you did good or bad because it won't affect your success in linear algebra too much. You're going to learn completely new operations (like row reducing matrices) and you won't use derivatives and integrals. Remember even the scariest math problems can be broken down into tiny easy to solve pieces. Finally focus on the theories and thoughts behind the math (not the math itself).
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
The way the class was taught was okay. He did know what he was doing but he made the exams very difficult. Any exam that he made was more difficult than expected and you really had to know the subject to get even a decent grade.
Course highlights:
I liked how in the beginning of class he read a linear algebra joke. Also the final was pretty easy which was nice.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure you understand the ideas as you go because everything builds directly off of the beginning information.
