Online math courses at UIUC

  1. May 20, 2012 #1

    Does anyone have experience with these online courses?

    As an extension of my previous thread, I've just graduated from undergrad with a CS degree with Calc I, Calc II, and Linear Algebra under my belt. Eventually, I would like to pursue a master's degree in applied mathematics.

    I'm starting a full-time job in July, and these online courses might be my only way to beef up my mathematics background. Assuming I do well, would showing proficiency in these courses be enough coursework to get into a top 10 applied math program (besides GRE scores)?

    PS. I was also told that research is significantly less important for master's degrees than PhDs.
