APPM 2360
Introduction to Differential Equations with Linear Algebra
5*****
Pros: Professor Bortz know very well about what he is teaching; he's humorous, he teaches very clearly - he gives practice problems for new knowledge. He's also enthusiastic. Absolutely great teacher. Best math professor I ever had. It is not required to go to recitation but I highly suggest that you do go to the recitation - extremely helpful.
Cons: Not too much extra credit: about 0.5%. The grade is curve for about 7 percent. AKA, 86% is about an A. For the difficulty of this class, it is not sufficient, honestly. Four exams may be a little too much for most people.
To be honest, it is not that hard to get an A. I did all my homework (of course I know how to do it because I go to every single recitation). BTW, make sure you know how to do the homework - it's gonna help you. Also, go to every recitation can be really helpful. The TA will give out sample problems and then the TA will go through them all. Also, remember to do the sample exams before taking the exam. I highly suggest doing about 3 of them. It won't take you long. Just go through them quickly, no need to do every single problem if you know how to do it. If you do not, try a few more, it will improve your grade.
