First of all, I love math, but i am only in calculus 1. and i hear that a math degree isn't really like calculus, once you get into the analysis and theory of math it can be very different, at least that's what i hear.

how can i figure out if a math major is for me, or if engineering is a better route.

thanks

Easy take an intro to proofs class. If you like it then math is for you.

It's also worth mentioning that not all schools have a course titled "intro to proofs" or some variant of it. Ask the math department to make sure. Courses such as Linear Algebra or an Introduction to Number Theory that can serve as gateways to upper division mathematics and proof techniques. It will depend on the university you're attending.
