How to Learn Math

I signed up to take a free course on how people learn math from Stanford called How to Learn Math.

I was a TA for a long time in college, and while math and computer science are not the same thing -- the theorists will probably vehemently disagree with me there -- we run into the same sort of challenges when trying to reach the people who don't get immediately get it or don't immediately care about it.

It also seems like a generally chill course, only asking for about 1-2 hours/week. I just started poking around with it (on session 2!), but the material seems interesting, and it's geared for as much or as little engagement as you'd like.

Check it out!
