Learning

This course took me 66 hours, and the essay took me 18 hours. I read all of the material in the study guide and took notes for all learning outcome and questions. Around 20% of the book was read.

Most contents are abstract, despite many stories and examples being provided. I think I’m only interested in 30% of the contents. I doubt that scientific reasoning can be taught. I think It’s more a skill requiring continuous practices.

Assignments

I think the most interesting part is the long assay. I had invested on Tesla stock, so I chose to research when full self-driving would be realized. I collected material from around 30 articles and made an estimate that it would be ready by the end of 2021. To my surprise, this essay is graded 95.

Tips:

I read a book Mathematical Universe when I learned scientific reasoning. The same content was presented in a more interesting way in the book. This helps me to continue reading the text which is a bit boring.

Exam:

Everything is based on memory, so it’s very helpful to recite the notes in the last several days. I recited about 3 times.

Grades:

Overall, I get A (86). This is the first course of liberal arts that I get A, so I’m satisfied.
