So far, I have been impressed with this class. It seems to be a great introduction for someone starting out in engineering. In high school and calculus one 'learns math.' An engineer 'uses math' to understand the world around them. It requires as subtle yet profound shift in thinking.
The course also helps answer the question, do I have enough math background to successful start at a engineering school like UT arlington. It is much better to find out the summer before that you have a weakness in a subject before the rush of first semester.
Please note, the average of 40 hours per week I put down was because I had never seen matrices before. I spent a bunch of time catching up to the point where I could manipulate them to the same degree the instructor used in the lecture.
