Culculus 3 or not?

  1. Oct 1, 2007 #1
    I'm a Biology major, I'm in my senior year, but I'm thinking of taking Calculus 3, in which I may use for my masters. Do you recommend this?

    Calc 3 is like calc 1 but with multiple variables, its quite easy, so I recommend it.'

    plus it's way fun

    I did find calc 3 the most interesting out of all the other calcs!

    I strongly recommend it. Calculus 3 is actual fun and not deadly like Calculus 2.

    Yeah, I also found calc 3 more fun and a little bit easier than calc 2. I'd say take it. Taking more math can never hurt for any science major.

    Students vary. Calculus 3 can be just about as difficult as Calculus 2. Still, if you believe or know that Calculus 3 could be a useful tool for your work, then enroll in it when you're ready.

    Taylor and Mcclaurin series did not make sense to me until I had my electronics professor explain it to me. God I hated series..

    i'm sorry but i have no idea how some people can't handle a class in the calc series

    I agree ice, my discrete math professors always use to say, "well thats easier than calculus".
