Winter 2020 - I was so scared of this class. He lectures with very explicit power points that he posts online so there's no point of going to class. When he lectures, he sounds like a sped up YouTube video which gets frustrating when taking notes. There are 5 weekly HW assignments that are relatively easy just start a few days before, not the day of. Your TA's office hours are crucial!!! Re-learn how to do matrices- its a big part of this class and you will get the hang of it once you do them a few times. The midterm was mainly multiple choice, fill in the blank (MC format), with some free response (math related). The questions were mainly definitions from the power points. I started studying 2 days before and got a B on the midterm. The final became optional for my class because of corona virus but most of us ended with solid grades.
