In summary, you should review basic calculus, trigonometry, and discrete math before planning to pursue a degree in computer science. You should also study at least 1-2 hours outside of class for every hour you spend in class.

But you should really study functions, trigonometry, limits, derivatives, integrals, Taylor series, vectors, multivariable functions, contours, partial derivatives, directional derivatives, gradients, divergence, curl, differential equations, phasors, Fourier transforms, Laplace transforms, probability, random variables, statistics, and linear algebra (vectors spaces, span, linear independence, basis, orthogonality, eigenvalues / eigenvectors, linear operators, etc.).

You won't cover all of this in 5 months. But at a minimum, you should learn basic calculus.

Yes. If you have mastered the concepts of trigonometry (sine, cosine, tangent, SOHCAHTOA, 45/45/90, 30/60/90, Pythagorean's theorem, triangles within a unit circle), functions, limits, derivatives as an instantaneous rate of change of a function - aka slope of the tangent line, Riemann sums to estimate the area under a curve, integrals as exact areas under curves), then you should be in good shape. Of course, you'll still need to work hard. There is a big difference between high school and college level math, science, and engineering courses. In general, I would recommend studying at least 1-2 hours outside of class for every hour you spend in class. If time permits, depending on the class, you may take 3-5 hours outside of class for every hour you spend in class. When I took Circuits I in college, I spent 3-5 hours studying outside of class for every hour I spent in class.

Ok thanks, this clears things up a lot more

The purpose of this program is to help students prepare for university-level mathematics and Python programming courses by providing a comprehensive curriculum and hands-on practice with key concepts and skills. It is designed to be completed in 5 months, allowing students to gain a solid foundation before starting their university studies.

Yes, this program is suitable for students with little to no prior experience in mathematics or Python. It starts with the basics and gradually progresses to more advanced topics, making it accessible for beginners to follow along and learn at their own pace.

No, all the materials and software needed for this program will be provided. You will have access to online lectures, practice exercises, and coding environments to complete the assignments. However, having a computer with internet access will be necessary to participate in the program.

The program is designed to be completed in 5 months, so it is recommended to spend at least 4-5 hours per week on studying and practicing. However, the amount of time needed may vary depending on individual learning styles and pace.

This program will provide you with a strong foundation in key mathematical concepts and Python programming skills, which are essential for many university courses. It will also help you develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills that are valuable in any academic field. By completing this program, you will have a better understanding of the subjects and be better equipped to excel in your university studies.
