This class was tough.
Course Overview:
The class moved at a fast pace and was really challenging at first. The material covered took considerable time and effort to understand and was an untraditional math class because it required proofs and big assignments. I would spend many hours a week studying just for this class and would often go to office hours outside of class.
Course highlights:
I learned a tremendous amount from this course that I was able to bring with me to higher level math classes. Although, the material was challenging, the professor had an amazing personality and was very helpful when I asked questions inside class and during office hours.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
I would tell students to continually study every night and to not procrastinate in the course. The course moves fast and requires constant studying. Therefore, when questions arise as the course progresses, I would advise students to ask friends and the professor immediately for help.
