    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Intro to logic and set theory is a "weed out" class, so to say. It shows you what it really means to understand math and to be a mathematician. While its content seems contrived and tedious at first glance, it is probably one of the more enlightening courses I've taken. All of those equations I took for granted, whether in econ, chem, or physics, are viable thanks to the several proofs mathematicians have completed.

    Course highlights:

    One thing's for certain: I've gained an appreciation for the equations I have readily available to me in other departments! If there's one big take away, it's to NOT take an equation for granted. Ever wonder how the heck we use the formulas we do in, say, chemistry or physics? Ask the logicians for their proof (this is rhetorical advice, of course). Another important lesson I got from taking MTH 199 was to view logic as a language. If truly understood and properly broken down, lots of things just seem to make more sense — complex topics sort themselves into clearer groups for easier understanding.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to office hours if you have any questions! The professors DO want to see you succeed. Also, they give helpful advice on how to write in logic's finicky language well. And start assignments early. Proofs can be tedious, but they can also take a long time to write (especially if there are multiple conditions to walk a reader through).
