This class was tough.
I love math so linear algebra was a class I looked forward to. The text is dense and the lectures aren't particularly engaging. Having graduated and moved on to grad school, I learned that your undergraduate career will be exactly what you make of it. If you want to graduate as someone who understands how to determine the surface area of a three dimensional saddle shape, you are the one in charge of making that happen. That being said, you'll have to put in a lot of hard work in order to succeed in this class.
Learning how best to cope with difficult mathematical concepts and how to apply them to different situations. There's nothing like finally understanding a concept you've been struggling with for ages.

Advice for students:
Read the text. Go to office hours. Pay attention in recitation and ask questions. You're responsible for your understanding of the material.
