    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Generally wasn't a big fan of this subject overall. Between the teachers old school delivery via a projector and the fact that this is not a beginner friendly subject, particularly for those with limited mathematical ability or did not do HSC 2 unit math, made it difficult to obtain the required knowledge in order to pass this subject. I really did not like how much content was crammed into a two hour lecture.

    Course highlights:

    To be perfectly honest I did not really learn much from this course. Whether that was because I just didn't click with it or if it was something else is beyond me. Perhaps the one thing I did learn is that one really needs to be patient and put the effort into study.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In topics that you did not understand or were poorly explained be sure to look at youtube tutorials and alike. There are plenty available and can be quite helpful seeing a problem tackled differently(eg. Khan Maths). Attend all lectures and tutorials, miss one and you fall drastically behind as there is alot crammed into one lecture. If you are lost seek help early. Alot is crammed and relies on previous concepts. If you wait you risk falling drastically behind.
