    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    While it was very challenging, it was also very interesting. If one desires knowledge of how to understand nature in ways that are impossible to do mathematically or empirically, working to understand them computationally is the best option.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to program using the Matlab language, how to do so with good coding practices, and how to extract useful information from otherwise incomprehensible sets of data.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go into the course with a basic knowledge of computer programming. While it is not required per se, it is extremely helpful and, honestly, should be required. Learn Matlab syntax, basic operations, and how to type "help" into the command window. This will help you enormously.
