Note that you only need to understand the mathematics part to the extent of being able to apply it. Still, it helps to be able to work through the maths. If you struggled with the first course, then you may need to simply brush up on the numbers, review the first few pages and then do the exercises. We'll support you in the practice outings so don't worry at all.
PS: Shooting in manual requires us to become less intimidated by numbers. We're willing to support you 100% if you would like some practice. Let us know and we'll create an 'office hours' set-up so you're able to get on top of this.
This is the exercise that was given to you at the end of your first lesson. If you've misplaced it (or caught red-handed in not practicing it, then here it is).
Note that getting comfortable with the approach and camera is really important so please work through these exercises.

Pick one of these photographers to study in greater detail. Work through aspects of composition and critiquing using notes from the composition class. Go through youtube videos, blog articles and try to get a sense of what makes that photographer special.
