### Reviews

I really enjoyed this subject! The content is really interesting, and the lecturer, who was Alex at the time, is phenomenal. A warning though, as a pure maths student, I sometimes feel like I wish I had have done the standard pathway rather than the accelerated pathway so that I had time to appreciate the content. Still really enjoyed it! :)

Four lectures a week is quite a challenge, the speed at which content is presented is definitely a shock at first. Lectures are interesting and well taught. Tutorials are well done and are effective in bridging gaps in one's knowledge. MATLAB can be interesting but often feels quite pointless. The assessments can be a bit frustrating, a couple of them are very difficult and time-consuming, but contribute very little towards the final mark. The exam (worth 80% of total mark) and the subject in general is certainly doable, given you don't fall too far behind and you reinforce your learning with practice problems in the problem booklet or textbook. It can also feel quite rewarding, especially if you are planning to do a fair bit of maths in your degree (given you do AM2 as well).

Any problems in the textbook or provided by the lecturer or the tutors that are not checked/marked can be very tempting to just ignore but PLEASE do the questions. Not only do they help your understanding of the lecture material, they also help reinforce all the axioms, formulas and theorems that must be memorised for the exam (no cheat sheet or formula sheet). Early topics may be familiar from year 12, but be prepared for the new stuff that may need more time and effort to wrap your head around. Lecturer (Alex) is not boring and very approachable. If you're not afraid to put in consistent effort and you really enjoy mathematics, this is a great class.

Pretty good lecturer, interesting subject and great tutors. Starts a bit too slow but a bit too fast later on.

It is crucial to always stay on top of the study materials as the course is very fast-paced with 4 lectures per week. Ideally, do not allow yourself to fall behind as this will increase your workload dramatically as the final exam approaches. Besides, the workbook and tutorial questions are good exercises and should be done regularly to keep yourself on track. If you face any uncertainties while going through the lectures or exercises, be sure to attend consultation sessions conducted by the lecturer or any of the tutors as soon as possible. The lecturer and most of the tutors are very willing to help, and consulting them is a great opportunity to focus on your own problems. Overall, although this is a challenging subject for many people, it is a well-structured subject, and I would recommend it to those who love maths.

A tough subject for new Uni students, but good grades are possible through consistent hard work. 4 lectures/wk becomes a lot, but lectures can be watched at home, without really missing anything (all the writing is recorded at some stage). If you enjoy maths and are willing to work consistently hard to understand content and practice questions, I'd recommend this subject.

Pretty accelerated, wouldn't recommend if you are not good at math in high school. The knowledge is not simplified enough, though the notes are nice and neat. And matlab is awesome.

Norbury is a genius, but he works very fast. I was sitting in a group of commerce Chancellors and none of them were following what he was saying. That said, the content is fairly easy to learn if you look at it slowly and it really does change the way you view mathematics and dimensions. Do all of the weekly questions if you can; they're invaluable. Questions are fairly manageable, however.

Really fast and challenging course, but worth it.

This subject contains parts of Linear Algebra, Calculus 2 and Real Analysis. It is very fast paced and as a first introduction to the rigorous level of university maths, can be quite difficult. The lecturer goes through many proofs during lecturers but you don't actually need to know any of them (unlike AM2). This can make the lectures seem harder than they are. If you can sift through all the proofs and get to the real content, the subject is actual fairly straightforward. Learn to love row reducing and you will enjoy this subject. Lecture slides with blank spaces are given so you need to fill them in during lectures. There is also a workbook which contains many questions (some are extension questions which wouldn't turn up in exams). There is a MATLAB component to this course which I found quite fun and easy (although a lot of people struggled). There is also a computer test for the MATLAB component but you are given a practice test which looks almost exactly the same as it. The end of semester exam isn't too hard if you study for it.
