Yes, I'm still doing it. I'm not sure I can physically make it to a study
group, but I'd love to talk about it over the phone with ppls, either
conference or 1:1. You don't have a *lot* of catching up to do. 1st
Homework is due Monday.
I haven't found the video lectures to be very helpful so far, but I've only
watched the first series. The textbook has a large ratio of
blah-be-di-blah : useful info, sadly, but it has been the most useful tool
so far for me.
So far the math is just algebra. Calculus & integration are presented, but
only theoretically and we're not being asked to derive or integrate. As
long as you remember that integrals are the area under a curve from 'here'
to 'there', and derivations are the slope of a line of the curve at point
s, it all makes sense.
But given the terrible noise:signal ratio, I'm not always sure what's
essential to retain. That's what I need help figuring out.
