Clear, relevant, well-paced. Learned a lot but not so much that I won’t retain it. Right amount of time to practice to reinforce.

Extremely happy with today’s course. Everything Morris showed us today was helpful and useful for 7-11 students. Learned how to construct dynamic worksheet for calculus, great visual demonstration to prove how Math works.
