But there's also something else, and I wonder if this is normal or is it just my school that's like that?? It concerns the way the program is built. It seems that the physics class always make use of math that we haven't leanred yet. For exemple, we got Mechanics and THEN Calculus 2 (treating differential equations, vector calculus, Green, Stokes, Gauss thm, etc.) which is stupid because those of us who had made the necessary study on our own on these subjects in order to understadn the mechanics class, already knew everything taught in that class. Then we got the wave class which makes use of Fourier stuff, which we haven't studied. And next session it's going to be QM, where I bet you anything there's going to be plenty of unknown math tricks and thm involved.

rant is over. the question remains: is it like that in your school too? (or the school you went to at the time)
