Winter and spring courses recommend！(MATH 125)

**The reason I recommend it：**

**The reason why I recommend this class is that I think the professor of this class is very patient and earnest. He will help you solve every problem carefully. I don't think this class is very difficult because the teacher's teaching style is very good. In addition, you can ignore the score of one exam in this class. I believe this is the biggest benefit that the professor gives to students!**
