Mathlete

Saturday, 23 January 2010

The new semester has kicked off and any semblance of a holiday has finally left the building. The class I’m taking for the next 4 months is Applied Quantitative Reasoning. The instructor doesn’t appear to be a hard-ass, but he’s playing everything exactly by the CSU policy guide. I get the feeling because it’s easier for him to let the policy already in place do the work. This class is basically a part-time job; statistical mathematics for 16 hours per week.

It’s going to be a challenge, but I always rise to those. I’ve not exercised my math muscles in a decade, so I expect there will be some necessary cobweb-blowing in the first weeks.
