One subject that lined up nicely in two of my classes were matrices. In MATH-205, Linear Algebra and Differential equations, we covered the different aspects of vector spaces, such as the basis, kernel, and range of a vector space. In ME-17, Linear Methods, we covered how to perform basic calculations in MatLab.
While the difference in the depth covered between the two classes is quite vast, the main topic covered is matrices, which I found out can be used for more than just solving a system of equations. Derp.
In fact, they are quite complicated. So much so that at one point, I have no idea what’s going on with them. I’ll probably need tutoring or have to go to office hours to figure that out.
Anyway, it’s nice to already understand matrices thoroughly, so that the only thing unfamiliar with me in ME-17 is the coding aspect, which was already somewhat covered in ENGR-10.
