It's a trap!
In SummerMath, you will learn a lot of cool stuff, such including CylindricalCoordinates.
SummerMath is a 6-week long, intensive program in which the unwitting participants can complete any subset of Maths 61(Multi-V II), 62(ProbStat?), 63(LinAl? II) and 64 (DE's II). It is often pursued by Engineers and others who might have otherwise inflexible schedules, as it opens up (up to) 6 credits of scheduling during SophoMore year. Rising Juniors have also been known to take SummerMath if they didn't take one (or more) of the classes during their SophoMore year.
In the summer of 2010, SummerMath was changed into a three-week program due to the changes in core. Courses were Math 62(ProbStat?) and Math 64A (Differential Equations and Lin Al II). Class started at 8:45, ended at noon. Followed the same pattern as mentioned below, though I'm not sure if it was a week's homework in two days or a week's homework in one day. ProfessorSu taught Math 62 with particular emphasis on proper punctuation. ProfessorJacobsen and ProfessorOrrison taught Math 64A (Prof. Orrison handled Lin Al II the first week, Prof. Jakes finished the last two weeks with DEs).
The food at TheHoch is a joke.
Generally a day as a SummerMather goes something like: wake up for 9:00 class, be in class until noon, eat lunch, do homework, eat dinner, do homework, sleep. Expect a week's worth of homework in 2 days.
- You forgot the bit where you crash for 2 hours after lunch because you're so burned out and exhausted even though you're only a week in.
- On the plus side though, you gets some awesome professors.....
- Your mileage may vary.
- What are you talking about, Gu is awesome. Just because she has no idea what it's like to be bad at math....
- If you're a grader, the schedule is something like wake up at 9:00, grade, eat lunch, grade, eat dinner, grade, tutor, sleep. probably more so than the students. I think you can have some free time as a student (read: finish before 8 pm) if you know what you're doing.
- How true this is depends on how many graders there are, how efficient they each are and how well they work together. There was one year that we had a decent amount of free time in the afternoons.
- And if we give you WarcraftIII and WarcraftIIIExpansion to play and you decide grading and sleep is something you can put off for a while.
- Hey, I still got the grading done by the time the next day's class ... ended. I ... may have walked in with homeworks halfway through class. Also, don't do that to your graders, they will forget what sleep feels like.
If you are a bad ProCrastinator?, realize that SummerMath might drive you NoisilyInsane. Think very hard about whether you want to do it or not.
