  1. I can’t speak for this course, but the textbooks usually cover the more rigorous sides of the topics. There’s only so much time in a lecture and it’s usually best used to help students gain an intuition for what they’re learning rather than drowning them in proofs.

  2. and also the opportunity to be in an academic environment, have access to labs, etc. Teaching yourself is great, but nothing beats what you learn in a lab.

  3. im not talking about this particular lecture. I have watched a bunch of lectures on mathematics from mit (multivariable calculus, differential equation AND linear algebra) and what im saying is they lack RIGOUR. They do cover thematerial, but its not in a “theorem-proof” format

  4. This is day 1 of a very basic section of an introductory math class. It will get MUCH harder as the lectures progress, and it will feed in to some very advanced stuff later when its applied to higher, more abstract math, and / or, engineering, and or quantitative analysis.

  5. heres a question. Is this course being taught to mathematicians in the first year ? because if it is i find it really non-rigorous. maybe its just for engineers or something…
