I thoroughly enjoy Physics. Everything about the subject entertains me to no possible end. However, I'm having some troubled thoughts about my future. I'm a freshman in college. I want a B.S. in Physics, but a lot of obstacles are in my way. First, I'm not even in the right math class to begin with. I'm in college algebra (don't look at me like I'm stupid!). Basically, I took a placement test, and the math department believes I should be in this class. However, I can go to the math department and see if I can be placed in a higher class. As much as I want to become a physicist, I'm sort of being drawn away from my adviser, as he says Physics is calculus based, and that you must know your calculus. He said most physics majors don't come into college taking college algebra. He also said those that do start with college algebra have too difficult a time when going up the ranks to Calculus 2 and 3. With this, my whole feeling about physics went down the drain. I took a Precal class is high school, but I don't think it matters here. My physics professors have also stated that the language of physics is calculus. Truth is, I've never been a math wiz, however, every math class I ever took I received in A or B. The only thing I ever did bad on was math placement tests and the math segment on the ACT. My question to you all is if I should try graduating with physics, even with a sour math background? I was going to major in physics with a minor in biology, but now I think I might reverse that. I might Major in Biology and possibly minor in Physics, or maybe major or minor in chemistry. I'm new to the forums, and I really love this place. I love physics, but maybe I don't have a future in it. It sucks when you want to be something really bad, but then God says "nope, you can't do this, your not smart enough."
