Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
I took this course to satisfy a TECH requirement, however, it lead to one of the more intellectually engaging experiences I had over the semester. The course is named "Mathematics in Modern technology" and, as implied, covers various mathematical concepts involved in everyday technology, such as GPS, internet, and search engines. The professor, Matt, taught the course this past semester for the first time, but still managed to make the course exciting and engaging, impressive considering that this was also a morning course. Material is not complicated and grading is not hard at all. I highly recommend this course to anyone looking for a TECH requirement or simply looking for a interesting experience.
Course highlights:
The basic concepts behind various technologies we use today, such as GPS, search engines, Google Maps, and the Internet. I was astounded at the simplicity of the mathematical concepts behind this incredibly complex technologies that operate so broadly.
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
Just put in the necessary effort and you are bound to get an A. The material is not complex in any way, but Matt wants to see his students try at the very least, which includes showing up to class. Any lack of effort detected by Matt will most likely result in a reduction in grade.
