This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course to students interested in math and the math behind the physics/chemistry/biology/engineering equations they are studying in other subjects. It's a course that surrounds methodology. How do get an equation and different methods or theorems behind key concepts. It's a tough course, but with the right effort and motivation, you can make it through with a new perspective on math!
Course highlights:
Take notes on the text books and the lectures and compare them. That is where my introductory learning came from and then to learn the steps of each problem I watched videos online. People also recommended to go to office hours for the professor to gain insight on what you'll be tested on.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Watch videos online and talk to the TA or professor. If your instructors aren't good, find a different TA you can consistently ask for help.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
XuYan Chen isn't a super great teacher in lecture. However, he's pretty good one-on-one His tests are pretty easy though
Course highlights:
he posts his lectures online - up until laplace transforms easy tests No required homework (posts optional exercises online)
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
YOU DON'T NEED TO BUY THE TEXTBOOK - there is no online homework there's a free PDF of it circulating around the student body
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
Her posted notes and solutions were very detailed and you don't ever have to go to class
Course highlights:
Definitely useful for future classes if you're in engineering. Learned a lot about differential equations
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure to study every week for the quizzes and study a LOT for the final because it's v difficult
