    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I feel like I didn't really learn too much in this class except that the curve is your best friend. However, I realize that most students are forced to take this for major requirements, and to that I say okay. It'll be fine. Just read the textbook and don't stress too much about your grade because chances are you'll probably be fine. Also, the homework and projects will boost your grade if you're not doing well on exams!

    Course highlights:

    The beginning was really tough if you haven't worked with matrices before, took me awhile to get used to it, which is why I completely bombed the first exam. The second section of the course was a lot better though (between Exam 1 and Exam 2) and I actually learned a lot during that period. I would say keep watching all those Khan Academy videos because the professors aren't the best at explaining. It's not really their fault; it's pretty difficult to teach linear algebra. You'll definitely have to do a little bit of self-learning.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    THE BOOK. It's really important. Also, the examples from lecture are usually not complex but they seriously help, so I would say go to class. If you don't, even if you get the notes from someone else you might not be able to understand it (if I look back on my notes years from now I don't think I'll be able to understand what I was talking about) because the notes the professor gives are kind of vague or unclear unless you're actually there while he's saying them. Also, office hours can be helpful if you go to the right professor, so jump around and see which one helps you the most.
