Fun course
by Steven W. on April 20, 2024
This course is very informative and interesting. Charts, graphs, and other infographics are included, though more can be added to condense information and provide an easier means to remember the information.

Sophia was challenging for me at first, but as I got taught more in math in general it made more since to me.
