Student Feedback

I found Math 201 Linear Algebra to be a great course with fascinating material that prepared me for my graduate studies. The instructor, Dr Specter, genuinely wants to help his students succeed and has patience when you don’t understand something.

This challenging course will satiate anyone with intellectual curiosity. The flexible nature of the course accommodates different student schedules and the design of the course allowed me to interact with my classmates from all over the world.

If you need linear algebra as a prerequisite course for grad programs, I recommend the online class at JHU.
