This was an interesting class. First of all, it is a class for pure math majors, yet they make math for teaching majors take it as well.

That being said, Petersen is a great professor. He is clear and concise about explaining the material. It was not Petersen I had a problem with, it was the material. Most math classes I have been able to idly sit by and not study too much until the final...but this one really whipped me into shape. The HW grader was extremely harsh, so most people got between a 5 and a 7 on all homeworks.

If you put a good deal of work into the class, it is easily manageable. He gives reviews before each test and recommends which problems you study from the homework before each exam...I'd say from the 10 questions on the final, 3 were on a final review sheet, 2 were from homework, 3 were simple applications from what we'd seen in class, and there were 2 harder questions.

If you don't have to take 120a, then do not, by any means, take it. However, if it is required for your major, take it with Petersen. Just prepare for a hard-working quarter.
