I'm currently taking the EE version of E&M 1 this semester and I'm fairly disappointed in how my professor is handling the material. Every problem is highly symmetric I honestly haven't actually evaluated an integral all semester. The integrals are just remembering the surface area or volume of a sphere. I have been trying to make sure I understand what a curl, divergence, etc. really are by evaluating them in a step by step process but it's never needed. I don't feel like I'm getting anything close to the tools needed to solve a non-symmetric E&M problem. In my circuits classes, I figured out that node voltage is extremely powerful and I think I could actually come up with some ways to deal with more difficult circuits using MATLAB. Is Maxwell Equations similar? If I could find the proper conditions could I basically solve Maxwell's Equation to get the answer?
