So Klein, the teacher for Finite Math: Summer Edition is pretty f*cking rad. The guy's from Brooklyn, very no nonsense, and really tries to explain the concepts in useful, real-world scenarios. The class is going to go very quickly - he cheerfully told us we would have no life for the next six weeks - but I think it'll be fine. He doesn't induce panic the way my previous teacher did. (I wonder if the mere fact Klein is a native English speaker is the reason I find him so much easier to understand?)
So I'm glad to have a quality math teacher. My Spanish teacher - the same one I had last quarter - is very good, too, so I'm actually pretty pleased with my summer quarter, except that it starts so freakin' early. That makes me want to cry. 7:30am-12:15pm isn't a bad schedule, but waking up early SUCKS.
