Students said about the course:

“This class that Professor Bauerle has constructed is the pinnacle of education. This is the only math class I’ve ever taken where I truly felt that I could go at my own pace.
I really sucked at math in high school and was really hesitant coming into the 19A/B series but have left the series with a stronger foundation then I thought I would ever have.”
