Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend it because it is a easy course for those students with M1 background in secondary school. There are totally 8 chapters you need to learn in this course, but 5 of them are covered in secondary school. And the concept in other 3 chapters are similar with the 5 courses you have learnt.
Course highlights:
Highlight for the course when final exam is the simple linear regression, which is the last chapter of the course. It is not covered by M1 but it is similar to the core maths and M1 in secondary school. You just need to think more and consider the relevance of core maths and M1 then you will know what is going on for the chapter.
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
Having a clear mind is the most important thing in all the mathematics cores. If you have studied M1 in secondary school, you can directly skip the lessons for first 5-6 lectures and go all for the tutorials because the tutors will provide exercises to you of the topics which the difficulty are similar to exam I think.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I recommend fellow schoolmates to take this course as it is a very useful perquisite course and it helps much to consolidate the basic business calculation model. Also, Professor Wong use a rather interesting and easy way to illustrate difficult concept, which makes taking the lesson more valuable than study yourself
Course highlights:
Through out the whole course you will learn the calculation of distributions and probability. You will need some basic M1 knowledge from secondary school in order to get a starter boost or it will be a little bit challenging for students who have not studied M1 or weak at mathematics.
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
Try to pay attention in class and listen carefully for the illustration in class as the formula is pretty difficult to understand it yourself. The only easy way is to follow the instructors steps and demonstration and try to solve the problem following the example taught in class.
