I'm not a math person; this course was very difficult for me; and I got terrible scores in the second half; but in spite of that, I made progress, and, best of all, I'm looking forward to giving it another shot in the next cycle, something that's encouraged - and I'm inspired enough to do prep work in between so I can do better than I did this time. Terrific atmosphere on the message boards, great teacher communication, lots of support. Also lots of side talk on the method behind the madness, which I appreciate, just because it's interesting to me. It takes a lot to get me through a math class, and it was all here.

I'm heading into week 15, and it's a credit to these guys and their humor, enthusiasm, and engagement that I'm going to finish this course. I've always had problems with math, but every step has been explained (often in entertaining ways) in ways that are clear and easy to remember (I'll never forget the chain rule or how to solve related rate problems). I expected to struggle - and I did, but hey, I add on my fingers - but I never expected to feel sad that the course is almost over. They know what they're doing when it comes to teaching math.
