Calculus III & differential equations in one semester?

  1. May 3, 2008 #1
    should i or should i not? any advice? heres my current fall08 schedule:
    calculusIII
    differential equations
    mechanics of solids and fluids
    general ed course

    both calcIII and de are in the evening (back-to-back, 2 hours each). for those who have taken both of these classes, is it possible? or am i setting myself up to drop on of those during the semester? i hear that de isnt too bad of a course. if i take them separately, ill have to add another semester to my plan, making it 4 years in community college...ouch. any advice/insights would be appreciated.

    If you havent taken linear algebra yet i would replace d.e. with that and then take d.e. next semester

    I took DE/Cal III/EP II in my last semester at CC before transferring and it was a surprisingly light semester.

    Agreed. DiffEq and Calc III are easily manageable together...especially at CC.

    I am taking similar courses this quarter - two math, one engineering, one GE. Easily doable.
