I'm an older student working on completing my first degree. It is difficult. My major is [currently] mathematics. :) Please, help me by answering these questions! 1) How much time should I be putting into my courses daily?? I actually want to remember this stuff. The bad thing is I don't remember much of geometry, trig, and calculus. My courses for this semester are: complex analysis, differential equations, transitions to advanced math, Japanese I [shouldn't have taken it], and linear algebra. 2) My school doesn't require a year of physics for a BS mathematics degree, but should I take it to be competitive for jobs/graduate school programs? 3) Should I go for a BA or a BS in mathematics?? I really want to learn Japanese, but I see now that higher level math courses require much more than just working the problems. Also, Japanese is time consuming, too [must complete 2 years of Japanese for a BA]. Will having two years of Japanese help me career/graduate school wise? 4) What other advice do you have for someone like me? Should I completely switch majors??
