General Questions[edit]

What are you looking to get out of this course?

What would you say is your general knowledge of math?

Would you like a formal treatment of Calculus (very heavy, requires set theory), or an intuitive treatment of Calculus?

What times do you have available/would prefer for lectures?

Any other comments?
