    Programs What can one specialize in for a MS/PhD in Mathematics?

    I just remembered I am actually going to a University now so I can use their library! Yeah, I'm not used to having access to books in math/physics. My town library is a bit small, and usually have to use inter library loan to get books like these. Thanks for the reminder!

    Programs What can one specialize in for a MS/PhD in Mathematics?

    I do not know what the areas of focus are for Mathematics. A link to an outside source would be amazing, but I do not know how to expand upon the question. I am primarily interested in Pure Mathematics though. I want to know if it's worth me going into mathematics (to see if I'll enjoy it in the...

    Programs Math & Computer Science Double Major - What Graduate Degree?

    It can't hurt to plan ahead. You can always change your future, but you can't change your past. This will help me choose what math/computer classes I want to take. I already have 18+ credit hours before starting college. I'm already doing 2nd year math courses. It's time for me to start thinking...

    Programs Math & Computer Science Double Major - What Graduate Degree?

    Originally I hated trigonometry the most. Then I entered calculus 2 and began to love trig (it is so much like algebra). If the higher level statistics uses a lot of math theory, I might be more apt to try it. I'm wanting to stray a bit from discrete mathematics because I will be getting much...

    Schools AP tests for college credits?

    If your school didn't tell you about the AP exams...it fails, or you were absent/asleep when they told you. http://apcentral.collegeboard.com/apc/Controller.jpf Now you know something to tell your kids in the future: Take the exams.

    Programs Math & Computer Science Double Major - What Graduate Degree?

    My issue is I'm interested in all subjects (except essay-style writing classes). Although statistics is my least favorite math, I still find it interesting. I guess I'll find out what I want in the future. Thanks for the reply!

    Programs Math & Computer Science Double Major - What Graduate Degree?

    I am heading into my Freshman year in college. I know it's going to be far in the future, but I want to start brainstorming what my 5-10 year goal is. Any help is appreciated. With these majors, I'm planning on getting a masters in Computer Science, but what should I do with the math degree...

    Programs What degree should I get?

    One thing I found with a double major in math and physics is that it adds only 20-24 credits...so basically 1/2 - 1 year. I think that would be fine (personally). Do you think I should minor in computer information science or chemistry?

    Programs What degree should I get?

    I love doing pure mathematics ( enough so that I did it in my spare time during high school ). My least favorite math class was statistics. I enjoy physics as well. My physics degree requires 4 chem courses, and pure math requires 1 computer science course; applied math requires 3 or 4 computer...

    The Basics

    My largest issue is money. My family is just above the income level for government aid, but we are just below the income we need. But, I will attempt to get a hold of the book you recommended; I typically try to get them from my library, but usually they have nothing on the subjects I'm reading...

    The Basics

    Yeah, which is why I hate high school. The highest level classes are too easy, and when I try learning more, I don't have the proper resources to learn the material correctly.

    The Basics

    My biggest issue with equations is when it doesn't define what all the variables are. How often is this an occurence? And where can I find out all the variables of the different equations?

    The Basics

    Statistics I am currently taking (but am familiar with already), complex numbers I understand from Algebra, Differential equations I have worked with a little (I am currently taking AP Calculus BC which is the equivalent of Calculus 2, but I have also borrowed my teacher's Differential equations...

    The Basics

    Thank-you! Of those, I'm somewhat familiar with the wave-particle duality and Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, but do you think you could give a generals summary of the other two?

    The Basics

    I am a high school senior who is new to these forums. So far, I have found them intriguing, but I do have a question that I have asked many of my teachers, but sadly, had no real response. What are the basics of quantum physics? Basic concepts, theories, equations for example. I haven't been...
