Much easier than 2040, so it was an easy break. Not very enthused with the profs, but it wasn't a hard course so it didn't really matter. Difficult sometime to stay awake in class, because there is a fair bit of review of the easier concepts from 2040. Assignments started out short and easy, but they got longer and longer and required a lot of work to finish later on. Midterm and exam were fairly easy, and I would recommend this if you're required to take an extra math or stats course.

Such a good class. Not only did I learn a lot from this class, it's very interesting! WARNING: the labs ARE REALLY LONG. But if you do them yourself they enhance your learning and you will earn a good grade.
