Math-heavy
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
The course was good, and I learned the most from my recitations. Would recommend taking 1554 over 1553 even if you don't need it because the recitations were so beneficial.
Course highlights:
Row reduction, linear independence, matrix operations, eigenvalues, vector projection, singular value decomposition
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Practice conceptual questions. The math is not too difficult but understanding the concepts is key to succeeding.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
In my case, the material was pretty easy to learn when I was taught in a more methodical and concise way. Geronimo does not do so. His quizzes rarely correlate with the homework or practice problems.
Course highlights:
There are a lot of matrices and three dimensional projections and vectors. Be sure to know how to do simple math (addition, subtraction, multiplication, etc.) in your head. He does not allow calculators.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Thanks to the TA office hours, I was able to understand it. If you do take this course, take advantage of outside resources.
