This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would definitely recommend taking this course. The course lets you appreciate Math completely from a different perspective. Although it may get difficult very often, but practicing will make you perfect.
Course highlights:
Unlike Calculus, which is based more or less on continuous systems, linear algebra is much more broader. You begin by learning what a matrix is, later learning to find inverses, determinants etc. After you've finished this much, comes the beauty of the subject, where you study a particular thing from multiple perspectives, like how a linear transformation is just a matrix operation, linear maps is just matrix operation, eigenvalues and eigenvectors involve matrix operations, and how most of differential equations can be solved just with matrices and their properties. Lastly, you bid bye to the course keeping in mind that this is the most beautiful and important Math course you'll ever take in your life.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
The students taking this course should try not to miss any class. The course is extremely dependent on your professor and the way he teaches it. If you miss a class, make sure to visit your professor during his office hours. And, most importantly, never stop practicing, this course is all about doing problems and perfecting yout=r skills at solving them.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
If you aren't a math or engineering major, I wouldn't recommend this course just because it's not necessary. But if you are, I would because not only is it a requirement, but it's really useful information.
Course highlights:
This course made me a lot more comfortable with doing mathematical proofs.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Do as many practice problems as you can. Understanding the concepts is easy, but if you're prepared to apply them to any possible problem you'll have such an easy time on exams.
