This class was tough.
Prof. Yeakel is an extremely engaging teacher, and his delivery alone makes the material entertaining. The other classes I took in Fall 2016 for my major were very dry, but this is one class that I would take over again if I could do it for free.
The material truly does require critical thinking. It's mental work, but I found it rewarding and Prof. Yeakel always made sure to include practical applications in every course he taught.

Advice for students:
This depends on your specific course load, obviously, but since it's unlikely you have any other classes this mentally intensive, make this one your priority and you'll get the most out of it. You can pass an intro to business class or whatever on autopilot, but not this one! Also, stay after class for the discussion with Prof. Yeakel.
