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.
