Quarter Taken: Winter 2021

Grade Received: A

Overall, a pretty good experience. My favorite logistical thing about this class is that homework, midterm and final was graded SUPER fast (about a 24-72 hour return time). The material itself was pretty interesting (if you like numerical methods) but nothing special. We covered ODEs and some linear algebra. This is definitely one of those courses where you just do the homework (instead of really watching lectures) and learn as you go in my opinion. I never talked to the TA before but he seems like a swell dude (graded homework really fast). Same for the prof. If you worked with MATLAB before, this course will be even easier because there was at least one programming assignment on every homework. However, it isn't necessary, i rewrote most of the programs on Python and used those results and it was fine. The grading of this class is really lenient, 49% homework, 1% for teaching eval, 20% midterm and 30% final. Again, for me the homework was essentially a free 100% and the exams were pretty similar to the homework. The final was a bit harder than the midterm because there were True False questions that were hard to find in lecture notes but still doable. The average on the midterm was a 94% and we didn't get to see what mistakes we made on the final, though I got a 90%. Overall, a fairly easy course but definitely a bit harder than 151A
