This course is college level - students will need to have a good background in algebra to get the best out of this one. I found the notation for entering equations a bit of a challenge to get my head around, if you are even one digit off it will mark you wrong. The lecture videos are good though, quite engaging even with a bit of So-Cal accent:)

Don't get me wrong, the book is good (and I thank this course for introducing me to a good quality open-source book such as this), it's just that sometimes readings are assigned that tackle topics which have not been discussed yet (or will never be discussed), or which appear in a reading that will be assigned in a later w…
