Help Deciding on Spring Classes

  1. Nov 15, 2014 #1
    I am currently taking physics with cal 1 and cal 2 at the same time. It's a lot of work but I may come out of both with A's. I made an A in Cal 1 and seem to understand the math pretty easily. So my question is do you think it's feasible to take Physics with Cal 2, Cal 3, Differential Equations and Linear Algebra at the same time and be able to make A's next semester? Or should I just take Cal 3, Physics with Cal 2, and Differential Eq.? Thanks ahead of time.

    People would be guessing if they were to answer. There are too many variables and we don't know you. Overall the load seems pretty heavy though.

    Like Greg says, answering would be a matter of speculation, but this term I'm taking a similar course load to your proposed one (Physics w/ Calc II, Calculus III, Linear Algebra, and Java I) and I'd say getting A's is definitely doable, but in reality it's all up to you and your situation (habits, extracurricular responsibilities, professors, etc). You should know the answer better than anyone else.

    I would definitely advise not skipping Linear Algebra though, as I've found that my Calculus III professor references it a lot, and though I'm taking it concurrently with Calculus III right now, I wish I had taken it before.
