Mauel, Michael Silver_nugget
[APAM 1601] Introduction to Computational Math and Physics

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Excellent introduction to the field of computational science. Mauel is easy-going, understanding, and overall a great teacher. He's pretty passionate about the material, so it makes even the most boring topics (and there are a few) interesting. Just keep up with the work, and you should get an A.

Workload:

Easy, quick, weekly homework assignments that can be done an hour before class. 4 long and involved projects. They're difficult, but not too bad as long as you start early.
