This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This is a good course for people who like computers and enjoy a challenge. This course taught us how to do complex equations and also program computers to show and manipulate images using MATLAB.
Course highlights:
I learned allot about computers and how things that we see are actually designed. One of the highlights of the course was using the MATLAB program to create problems and solve them. I learned how to use problem solving skills and work in groups in order to find the solution. MATLAB is very specific and has many small details that you must have exact in order for it to work. Therefore, it teaches you to focus on details and be thorough in the work.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Pay attention in class and take notes. Many of the things learned in this course are complex and can be hard to understand. However, many of them have roots in Calculus and boil down to basic lessons of math. To study for tests and quizzes, go over problems from the homework and problems that were brought up many times in class. Those are often the types of questions used in class.
