Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Don't let the poor reviews on ratemyprofessors.com deter you from taking Prof. Harel's class!! He's truly in love with the material, and his main goal is for the students to understand it. He doesn't stick to the book, instead explaining concepts directly from his own knowledge, and he constantly encourages students to ask questions. He even sets aside entire days just to go over homework problems or questions in general! I would absolutely recommend him to anybody who could take him. Also, linear algebra is so much fun!
Course highlights:
I loved linear algebra! I'm learning about eigenvalues and eigenvectors right now, and they're simply fascinating. It's so incredible to think that a matrix can do to a vector what a constant can do to it! So cool!!
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Be ready to study and work out problems and proofs for Prof. Harel's class. Also, absolutely attend lecture as much as possible - he's so helpful and makes the proofs really easy to understand!
