## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello, I'm little bit confused on how I should set up my timetable for second year physics because some advice I'm getting is not agreeing with the "suggested course sequence" provided by the university. The courses I have to take are

Linear Algebra I, Calculus III for Engineers, Ordinary Differential Equations and the Laplace Transform(or Numerical Methods), Waves and Optics, Electricity and Magnetism, Mechanics, Modern Physics, Practical Physics(Lab), and two elective courses.

My two main questions are which differential course is better to take (Laplace transform or numerical methods) and what order should I take all my courses in.

Linear Algebra I, Calculus III for Engineers, Ordinary Differential Equations and the Laplace Transform (or Numerical Methods), Waves and Optics, elective course.

Electricity and Magnetism, Mechanics, Modern Physics, Practical Physics (Lab), elective course.

So is this a balanced schedule or should I make a couple changes to this.

**I was thinking of taking in the first semester.**Linear Algebra I, Calculus III for Engineers, Ordinary Differential Equations and the Laplace Transform (or Numerical Methods), Waves and Optics, elective course.

**Second Semester.**Electricity and Magnetism, Mechanics, Modern Physics, Practical Physics (Lab), elective course.
