I have received request from a student, who is not in math major, asking me for advice on
- How to keep motivated when studying math (calculus, linear algebra, etc.)
- What does one need to do beyond doing homework in order to get an A?
(I understand this is a subjective matter. And I do have my own opinions. But I want to ask this question, not in order to get a correct answer, but to solicit some ideas different from my own.)
