This course was very organized and was completely manageable alongside my other life science courses. We had participation quizzes and assignments each week which were used as practice for the material, along with 2-3 asynchronous modules and 2 synchronous office hours. The tests were overall fair and often had similar questions from assignments/previous tests. We spent some time reviewing concepts from grade 12 calculus and vectors; however, some new concepts were also introduced. We also had 3 labs that we worked on using Jupyter. Overall, there were many resources you could use to familiarize yourself with the types of problems you would expect to see on tests/exams and the profs and Ta’s are always open to answer any content or lab-related questions you may have.

Definitely a difficult course, but you can do well if you really practice hard. Do all the assignments and make sure to get help if you need it.

Make sure you can do the old tests in the coursepack. The questions are often similar.
