Hey guys I'm trying to decide how many classes would be doable next semester. For background info, I am a freshman at the university of maryland, and I am a math major.

How viable would it be to take a core class, a physics class (This is the second semester of a three semester, calculus based, general physics course. The subjects covered include electric and magnetic fields and potentials, simple circuits, and Maxwell’s equations in integral form.), and then 3 math classes?

The 3 I had in mind were

-341, which is a second part of a multivariable calc, linear algebra, diff eq class (http://www.math.umd.edu/undergraduate/courses/syllabi/syllabusMATH340.html" [Broken])

-410, which is called advanced calculus I (http://www.math.umd.edu/undergraduate/courses/syllabi/syllabusMATH410.html" [Broken])

- and then either intro to numbery theory or intro to abstract algebra

I realize that 5 classes with 3 math is doable, but i want to know if it will still be enjoyable if that makes sense. Also, another option is 341, number theory, and abstract algebra and then I could always take 2 maths. The ambitious side of me wants to take 3 though and I need to know if I am being unreasonable.

Thanks for the help guys!
