take this class to familiarize with math materials
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
So, math isn't for everyone. But, it gets really interesting after first semester calculus. Even though this tends to be one of the hardest courses in the school, it was one of my favorites.
Course highlights:
This class is super important if you are a STEM major. In my experience, other classes build off of this one. For example, Math 53 was way easier than I thought it would be (not necessarily easy, just easier) because of the material I learned in Math 1B. And while a lot of upper level calculus courses will also accept Math 16A and B as prerequisites, 1B better prepares you if you're going to move forward in math.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
The two things that helped me the most and I couldn't have passed without: first, read the textbook! This goes for any math class. You have the syllabus, so you know what material will be covered on what days. So just read through that chapter before it's covered in class. It makes lecture much less confusing. Second, take advantage of your GSI's office hours. I made appointments with my GSI every week so I could actually finish the homework and get the material.
