  4. Great course; interesting material, fair (though not easy) assessment, phenomenal professor.
  5. This is a fun class that starts off really easy but gets a lot harder. The material is all very interesting, with lots of cool applications. Professor Peterson is a great, and he's always willing to help whenever you need it. This class is hard, but worth it.
  6. This is the hardest class I've ever taken. I suggest you go over notes and ask all the questions you have quickly, before all the material piles up and becomes much harder to understand. Professor Peterson is an excellent professor, and he's patient and willing to help you at any time.
  7. Simply superb. First of all the material itself is fascinating (if you have any interest in math, which I presume you do if you are even considering taking this course.) and delightfully intuitive. But more importantly Peterson is such an excellent teacher and presents the material with an astounding degree of clarity. Definitely the best math teacher I've ever had.
  8. Interesting material and Professor Peterson is phenomenal.
  9. Peterson's the man. The first half of the class (discrete probability) is really easy, while the second half (continuous) is very confusing. I recommend you go to Peterson's extra help sessions for homeworks along with your classmates; it's the best way to learn the material. Possible to get an A if you put in the work, I wouldn't call it a breeze.
