LIVE 38: Geometry
Sa 12:00–1:15am from 8/20 (Your Time*)
This LIVE course contains a total of 25 hours of live video instruction (~$18/hour), plus 1 year of access to Prof. Loh's recorded videos from this course.
We’ve carefully designed our courses to maximize engagement. Each of our LIVE classrooms has a 1:13 staff to student ratio, with a maximum of 40 students.
* The official meeting time for this course is 8:00pm in New York.
The class time will change over the duration of this session, because your country's Daylight Savings Time adjustments differ from the target time zone of this course.
