This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This course is definitely challenging as it involves alot of proving but it is interesting to learn about "imaginative math". Furthermore, it is a course that we have to take for mathematical science students as it is a pre-requisites for many of the courses. hence, it is important to set good foundation in this course.
Course highlights:
The highlight was that the final paper was an open book test! However, open book test is almost equivalent to tedious final paper. There's alot proving to be done, to prove the subspaces and basis which many didn't really exist( things you can't see). But basically, it was definitely a stepping stone into courses that will develop you into a technical IT expert as what you learn in algebra will help you in your computing languages!
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
It is important that you practice and constantly find motivation for this course as it may be dry. At certain points you ask yourself why are you even studying this course because it is definitely not something you can see or rather apply in work life. However, you must look at a bigger perspective, if you are thinking of doing something computing-related, this course will definitely be useful!
