Help With Course Schedule

  1. Apr 1, 2013 #1
    I'm majoring in Applied Mathematics and I am currently planning my schedule for next semester. These are the classes I plan to take. I would like to know if I will be able to handle this schedule, or if it will be too difficult. I will be a junior taking these courses. I don't have a mathematics advisor to talk to, only my general school advisor who suggested this schedule. Thank you.

    - Multivariable Calculus
    - Differential Equations
    - Linear Algebra
    - Transition to Advance Math (Concepts and techniques of proofs)

    I would personally be able to handle this schedule. So I infer that you would be able to handle it too.

    Did you have any major problems with single-variable calculus?

    Well, it is quite bit of math for a single semester, but I don't recall any of those courses being extremely difficult. I would advise you to self-study proof techniques during the summer though. For two reasons:

    1)My linear algebra class was particularly heavy on them, and if you're not used to them then it's a needless obstacle to overcome.
    2)It'll make your transition class a bit easier.

    My single-variable calculus course is going great and it's not too difficult at all. The applied math courses are the only ones I have left to take. If I were to postpone a few courses, I would just fill those spots with computer science courses. Which would not be any easier.
