    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is difficult. Expect to know how to do some Linear Algebra and Multivariable calculus by hand for the final. Yes, this is a "Intro to Programming" class, but for whatever reason you're tested heavily on math at the end. Linear Algebra isn't a pre-req but you're expected to know how to find reduced row echelon form of matrices by hand and rotate with a rotation matrix by hand. Kind of unfair but it's not all that difficult... Just annoying when this is (supposed to be) a programming class. Also, attendance is worth a grade which is also kind of annoying for a computer class. Obviously tech-savvy individuals would rather just show up for the exams but she takes daily attendance. You're probably best passing this up for the online version. The homework is tough. I've had programming experience and I couldn't get some of them done. Every week people were flocking to the TA because the assignments are kind of ridiculous. She also expects you to teach yourself everything before lecture. There's a weekly quiz that's on the topics you're learning about... But you have to take them before you're lectured on them. Backwards ass shit but the quizzes are usually pretty google-able and they're online.

    Course highlights:

    Forced me to learn some math I wasn't going to... Wish I woulda looked at the practice final sooner to realize that we have to do everything the computer can do in seconds by hand -.-

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't. Take it online... Unless you like going through the lesson to be able to take the quiz by yourself, then being forced to attend the lecture to be lectured about the same shit you just had to teach yourself... Followed up with weekly homework assignments that are kind of a bitch sometimes.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It was an online course that I did not feel like was well developed to help the students when they needed help.

    Course highlights:

    I liked using Matlab to calculate things and the main thing that I learned was how to use the different loops.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You should be used to not having a teacher telling you exactly what to do and how to do it because it is a very self determinate class.
