Comments on the course

(Forgot to adjust, easy, interesting and useful categories in previous review). Very interesting course. The math is very unique in the sense you really have to think logically. This is different from traditional, say, math 100 or math 101 where you just keep doing the same types of problems over and over. For this course understanding all the concepts is super key.

Advice

(Forgot to adjust, easy, interesting and useful categories in previous review). The ability to differentiate between whether or not you are "understanding" or merely "following" is key in this course. This course is different in the sense working backwards from a solution is not nearly as effective as in different math courses. Tips: Handwrite notes on paper for all lectures, lesson videos etc. Make sure you have no learning gaps when you are watching the videos. Pause the videos/lectures. Rewind videos/lectures if needed. Make sure you can do the problems from class again without the teacher's help. This is key. Can also follow along the curriculum with the textbook "The Book of Proofs", especially for the harder chapters. But I did not do this too much.

Comments on the course

It's useful if you want to go into pure mathematics, where proof techniques are essential. Keegan is a really nice lecturer.

Advice

A personal advice for anyone who wants to go on to take MATH 320. Success in this course does not guarantee sucess in MATH 320, which is drastically more difficult and rigorous. Although I do encourage people who find this course interesting to go on and take 320, it would still benefit you to prepare yourself for the challenges in higher level math courses.

Comments on the course

A very very difficult and mentally draining course. However, you truly do learn a lot about microcomputers and will have a much better understanding of how coding languages even work in this class.

Advice

It is super important to fully understand labs 3 and 4. These will help you get 6/21 of the LPT marks. (Might be thinking, "psh 6? That's so low! I am a 80+ student!". However, its difficulty ramps up very quickly and you may find yourself hoping to just get 5/21 on these to not have to fail the course). Definitely take a lot of notes, especially for the flipped lecture ones. Try to do well on the midterm, as it is a lot easier than the final. Find a good partner!
