## Realistic Prerequisites

**Proofs:**there were a lot of proofs in the class, and having experience with proofs is useful.**Single variable Calculus is important**(multivariable calculus did not appear often).

## Subject Matter

**Theoretical, abstract**. Went over proofs from single variable Calculus. However, many examples were given.**Foundation**given for future math classes.

## Course Staff

- The professor was very
**attentive**as well as**approchable**, and actively answered questions from students.

## Lectures

- Lectures were
**well prepared**and**clear**, covering the material in an**organized**way. - Previous experience with proofs make the lectures easier to follow.

## Problem Sets

**Difficult**and required students to use theorems**creatively**. However, problems are**doable**over time.- Often, psets are applications of theorems from lectures.

## Exams

- The problems on the exams were
**similarly difficult, maybe slightly easier than the psets**. - The exams was
**closed notes**and**challenging**, requiring**creativity**. - The
**practice exams and lectures**were very useful for preparing.

## Resources

## Grading

- Overall, the students found the grading to be
**fair**and**transparent**. - Expected that many got As and Bs.

## Advice to Future Students

*“The class can be***pretty challenging**but is**very fun and rewarding**! While many students in the class will probably already know how to write proofs and do not struggle much with the material,**a big point of the class is help students develop their proof writing skills**, so don’t feel bad if you struggle at first!”*“I think it is important to***stay on track with lectures**and**spend time working through problem sets**and trying out the proofs before working with other people.”
