    Classes start for me tomorrow! I'm a second year student. :)

    Should I consider tutoring?

    I'm sorry, I may have worded my post oddly. I'm taking Calculus 1 this fall and Calculus 2 next spring. I took PreCalculus last fall and Trigonometry last spring.

    Should I consider tutoring?

    I'm not sure if the university offers that, but if they do then I will consider it. :)

    Should I consider tutoring?

    That is very true.. I will go for it then! I'm sure there will be other tutors around to help me out if need be. I was actually planning on brushing up on my math skills, I plan on doing that in my spare time aside from classes. Plus, I know that not everyone will have an answer to a problem...

    Should I consider tutoring?

    I never took college algebra or intermediate algebra. I placed straight into PreCalculus the fall semester and I took Trig the spring semester of last year. My weak spots in algebra: factoring. I can factor, I usually just have to work on a few practice problems or review. I can do it, I just...

    Should I consider tutoring?

    Thank you. I may even wait until next year after I've taken calculus to start tutoring. I haven't decided yet.

    Should I consider tutoring?

    Hello, I was offered a job for tutoring and I'm just not sure if I should take the position, but I did pick up an application yesterday. I've really been considering it, not because of the résumé, or the money, but because of the overall experience. I will get paid, however, to do so. $10/hr...

    Post Your Summer/Fall 2013 Class Schedules

    Calculus I Physics I + lab Music Theory I'm already at 13 credit hours. The Calculus class is 5 credit hours, as well as Physics. I would take more classes, but I don't want to overdo it. So, possibly next semester I'll take more classes.

    Prerequisites to modern physics?

    That's fine. It doesn't really matter. :p

    Prerequisites to modern physics?

    I know that QM is a standard course for undergrad. I didn't mean SR as an actual course, just a brushed topic in a physics lecture.

    Prerequisites to modern physics?

    Again, someone wouldn't need to. Someone would already have taken chemistry before QM.

    Prerequisites to modern physics?

    One wouldn't need too, I'd presume someone would know GR before QM.

    Diff. Equations or Linear Algebra

    ^ This. Pretty much sums it up; however, if I were you I'd go ahead and take ODE.

    Prerequisites to modern physics?

    From the looks of it, it seems that you've got all of the math covered. As for the answer to your first question, just the basics of special / general relativity, but I'm sure you've gotten those narrowed down. As for QM, I'd recommend taking a chemistry course if you haven't already. As for...

    How quasars work?

    That is interesting. :tongue:

    How quasars work?

    This seems like a good way to explain quasars in a general point of view, for beginners. :) Wiki is good for general info, but if you want more in depth and complex things on quasars, then search your library or the Internet.

    Sleepy after reading few pages

    This is pretty much what happens to me if I'm reading something boring. If its something I enjoy, then I'll continue to read for hours until eventually getting tired. Anyway, no it's not problematic to fall asleep while reading a book. Perfectly normal! (Unless you have Narcolepsy.) :P

    Things that make you way too angry (venting thread)

    Very good point there. I guess it just depends on what the person does. I mean if it's a big thing like that, then most definitely. If it's a little thing, then no. Everyone does judge people by the way they act it seems, even if that person doesn't know it them-self.

    Is Calculus 2 too packed?

    Trig is very important in calculus if you ask me. It's almost like a second nature. :p One should take a trig course before calculus to greater enhance their ability. Euler's Formula is one of my favorites too, Mentalist! Even Leonhard is an interesting dude! Quite strangely, people come up...

    Things that make you way too angry (venting thread)

    I hate the fact that people always judge someone based only on the way they act. Neglecting to get to know the person, or their past. Sometimes, people should put their money where their mouth is. /end rant Okay, done! :smile:

    Is Calculus 2 too packed?

    Jeez! That seems like a load! I certainly hear that Calculus II is harder than Calculus I & III, simply because of everything that is covered in only two semesters. Especially since you're in other classes. For some people Calc II is a breeze, but for others not so much. I'll be taking Calc II...

    News Explosion reported near Boston Marathon finish line

    Agreed, very disturbing photo. Such a tragedy hearing about it and such madness. My father ran it last year and he finished in the second wave, I couldn't even imagine him going again this year -- only to be hit. I talked with him a few hours ago asking if he had any friends that went this...

    Game of Thrones is overrated

    Interesting way to put it.. :wink: Personally, I've only read the books and watched the first season of the show. I enjoyed the books and part of the show, but for the most part I frankly don't care if it's overrated or not. A lot of things are overrated; even little things such as an iPad...

    Career Help, Please?

    Yes, consider engineering since you want the math/science aspect. Since you want to save lives with that applied knowledge, it really depends on how you look at it and which engineering discipline. You could save lives with engineering, but the better term here would be improving. You can...

    Schools Help with deciding on undergraduate college

    Good point here, I agree. The choice is ultimately up to you. If you feel the that the physics program at one school is superior to the other, then you could possibly consider that alternative; however, since OSU is cheaper, I'd also take that into consideration. If you qualify for financial...

    Calculus I review for Calculus II

    Pretty much this. It does vary school to school, but at least brush up some on trig. I just skimmed through this, but it looks pretty decent, so I'd give it a go. You could also look up YouTube videos. Yes, maybe even perhaps grab a textbook and look through it while doing some practice...
