Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This is a valuable course as it offers students an introduction into programming in MATLAB, a solid starting point for C programming as well as other higher languages. The course offers students an environment to learn and apply various mathematical modeling and system solving methods. The course also forces the students to truly understand the code provided to them while encouraging self guided problem solving.
Course highlights:
The course was my first time being exposed to "C programming." Although I had experience working with higher level languages such as Java, I took some time to understand the idiosyncrasies of MATLAB. The class was a good refresher on the various linear algebra and differential equations problem solving methods while giving me the opportunity to apply them using a "programmable calculator" (MATLAB).
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
The coding and numerical methods are not difficult on their own. Most of your time will be spent culminating your lab assignment in a written lab report. The report is structured in such a way in which you must explain every line of code, showcasing your understanding. The exams are fair in the content, however, are rather long. The key to success is to understand the material extremely well, and to time yourself as you complete practice exams. Although the exams are quite fair in the questions, you will be crunched for time. So practice...practice...practice.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
It was a very helpful class and taught me alot about school!
Course highlights:
You need to be on the right side of the mountain which is impossible because you are he mountain but he doesn't understand that.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
I would tel them to work hard and listen to lecture.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.

Learn numerical methods, fairly easy to grasp concepts
Course highlights:
Not really many highlights just a lot of work
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Too much work, get old labs from previous students
