Hello PhysicsForums Community! I have several questions regarding some possible class load schedules for this Fall 2014 term at the University of North Florida (UNF) for a double major in Physics and Mathematics. First, here is a little background about me: I am 19 years old and have completed an A.A. degree along with college algebra, trigonometry, pre-calculus, calculus 1-3, intro to physics, general physics with calculus 1-2, and general chemistry 1-2; all of which was earned at Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ). I still maintain a 4.0 college GPA; I have earned A's in all classes taken at FSCJ. I have also had chronic wrist tendinitis for about a year and a half now, which makes writing/typing/etc. very painful; especially last Spring term at FSCJ where I was taking Physics with Calc 2, Calc 3, and Chem 2. Now I am heading into a university to take bachelor's level physics and math courses and need some help figuring out what loads are best for my situation. So here goes: I am planning on taking Modern Physics (with lab), Ordinary Differential Equations, and a Physics for New Majors seminar class (required for my major, but I don't think it will have any course work as it is only 1 credit). So one question is, would the load this term be too high if I added Linear Algebra to that plan? If I decide not to take Linear Algebra this term, it will have to be taken next term along with Foundations of Mathematics (Proofs, logic, etc.) and 1 to 2 upper-level physics courses like (but not limited to) Classical Mechanics, Mathematical Physics, Electricity and Magnetism, etc. So, my second question is, would next term's load be too high if I didn't take Linear Algebra this term? I am asking these questions because I have no idea what the workload on these upper-level undergraduate physics/math courses is like. Please consider my wrist tendinitis when answering my question. Thank you!
