Advice from Previous Students
It is easy to forget about it. Block a
regular time in your schedule for homework.
- Make sure the topic you choose for the course project is something
you are interested in and are familiar with mathematically, rather than
brand new mathematics you've never seen before.
- Remember that some weeks will have less homework than others.
Spend any spare time on the course project so that your last weeks of class
are not too crazy. The workload overall was fine.
- Dr. Sarah has set up the course project to be completed in steps to
help you. Take advantage of these and her help. I hadn't realized that
I could bring coding problems in to her office hours or message her on the
forum--she writes back within a day!
- I had fun with the readings and discussions. The reflections and
discussions are as interesting as you make them.
