Spring 2009 Class Critiques 
Posted on January 28, 2009 at 01:30 PM.
Welcome to my blog. It's been a LONG time since I've posted anything, so I figured I'd post this and let everyone know my classes and what I think about them.

Monday/Wednesday/Friday:

Linear Algebra and Matrices: We started this semester off with a bang on the first day and studied... FRACTIONS! Luckily we seem to be getting back into math with vectors and dot products, but I know all this stuff and it's aggravating to sit in a class I know I'm probably not going to be challenged at for a while. I mean, I took Calc IV last semester, and this is a major step back.

Senior Seminar (MONDAY ONLY): This class is just a class where we fix up our resumes and get ourselves jobs, and to know what to expect when we get there. We've only met once, and it was ok. Teacher's kind of funny, in a weird kind of way. Got some friends in it so it'll be fine.

Knowledge and Reality: This class is pretty fun. I sit back and let his lecture wash over me, and it's some interesting stuff. He's pretty crazy, so that's always a plus.

Tuesday/Thursday:

Operating Systems: This class is hard to figure out. I had some trouble in the prereq (Computer Organization) because it dealt a lot with hardware (which I only care about if it doesn't work). This class, though, doesn't seem like we're going to be working too terribly much on hardware, mostly working on how OSes deal with hardware. I'm reserving judgement, but I think I'll like it because of the subject matter and the CRAZY teacher.

Software Engineering: I'm really not looking forward to this class. We're working in teams (gah), we're not going to code until the last few weeks of class (mega gah), and we have to write documentation (uber gah!). I know that it's going to be helpful for me to have in the workforce, but I'm going to absolutely hate almost all of the class.

Data Structures and Algorithms: This will be my fun class this semester. I've always been pretty interested in Algorithms. We're looking at efficiency right now, and I never knew Big Oh notation like I do now.

Well, there they all are. If anyone read all of that, thank you. I'm a bit shocked you wanted to read all that, honestly. Oh well.
