    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Tim Sauer is a really through teacher helping you understand not only that something happens, but why it does. Lots of this class is understanding how the internals of a computer work, but it's taught as MATH-461 and OR-481 at the same time, so he makes it pretty straightforward so that anyone could understand it. Projects were actually interesting if you take the time to understand what is happening

    Course highlights:

    The highlight was probably the last project where we studied how to model data points with lines. We were given a set of data on the number of acres of polar ice each quarter for 10 years and used different model equations to try to fit it. Some equations showed much more rapid changes in ice than others. We got the best fit from a trigonometric fit (to account for seasons) which showed a moderate overall decrease in the amount of ice.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to every class. Tim makes it so easy to learn, whereas the textbook, while not bad, isn't as helpful. Dr. Sauer really engages students and helps them learn. Take the easy way, go to this class.
