Frequently Asked Questions

  • Will this help with my class at university?

    Yes! This is precisely our goal, to help students better understand the concepts and how to apply them. We expect many students to be simultaneously enrolled in university courses (e.g. MATH 131AB at UCLA).

  • What does it mean to be a beta student?

    Course memberships are $39/month for the course content; the ability to join Zoom office hours usually costs $30/month. However, current beta users have early access to Typal Academy while content is still undergoing much growth. To remedy any gaps in lesson plans, all beta students are welcome to join office hours with their membership.

  • What is so different about adding graphics?

    Real analysis concepts are typically geometric in nature, and seeing canonical examples can go a long ways in developing intuition. Real analysis textbooks often either do not contain diagrams or very few (that are of low quality).

  • Do I need to be enrolled at a university?

    Nope! We aim to empower aspiring scholars to learn effectively without forking out money to expensive universities. Some members even find this resource useful for preparing to go back to school for a graduate degree.

  • What is the homework like?

    We strongly encourage actively engaging with the topics through many homework exercises. Completion of this course requires at least as much work (homework/quizzes/exams) as a standard real analysis course at university. To ensure students are able to get feedback on their work, we also grade homework and exams by hand.

  • How long will this course take?

    The content for this course is typically studied over the course of 10 weeks. You can adjust that timeline as needed to suit your needs.

  • What's it cost?

    Access to the course contents costs $39 per month. All current students (i.e. beta users) can also attend weekly office hours with Eric on Sunday evenings.

  • What do I do if I have a question?

    Each lesson and quiz has an associated discussion tab where you are welcome to ask clarifying questions to the community. We update lessons to better clarify material based on community comments. You are also welcome to ask for more examples on a particular topic!

  • Do I need to buy a textbook?

    Nope! The content in our online course is self-contained. If you also want to complement your analysis studies with a textbook, we certainly encourage this!

  • Do you provide a completion certificate?

    Yes, we do! You may even impress potential employers with your developed skillset by linking your certificate of completion to your LinkedIn profile.
