90 avg. student in high school, and I had no idea what was going on. Was barely passing so I dropped it! If you don't have to take it, DON'T!

People are over exaggerating the difficulty of this course, it isn't easy but it in no way requires 20 hours of studying per week. I started having some medical issues half way through the course and missed the second half of the lectures and this course was still my top mark. If you're good at problem solving and creative you will do well in this course. This course is not about studying 1000's of hours but about learning how to be creative within maths. The proofs are not that difficult to write either, you simply have to explain absolutely every step, that is all.

You have to write exactly how the T.A.'s want you to or you will get like 30% (even though your answers may be completely logically and mostly syntactically correct). Unless you plan to study 15-20 hours a week just for this class outside of lectures, DON'T TAKE IT!!!
