Not too easy. Not too difficult.
In this course I have gleaned much information about solving various linear systems and matrices. As I progress in my academic engineering career, I have been exposed to increasingly difficult calculus concepts. As my focus has shifted to Calculus, my basic algebra skills have weakened and I feel this course has been helpful in reminding me of the importance of algebra in solving many of the world's problems.
This course emphasized the importance of understanding how to execute basic matrix operations by hand, then utilizing these skills in more complicated application situations. This course starts at a basic level and gradually adds on new concepts which provide students with the tools they need to feel confident in solving real-world problems.

Advice for students:
When you begin the course, the material is very basic algebra concepts. Do not slack here and pass this section as "too easy". Instead, utilize this as a period in which you can familiarize yourself with the structure of your specific course. Get to know your instructor, network with classmates, work the homework problems out by hand without a calculator. If you do these things you will feel much more confident as you approach exams and move on to study more difficult material.
