Is this a Good Spring Schedule?

    Hello everyone,
    I am currently picking my classes for spring semester. This is currently my second semester at university and I am a dual major of EE and Math.

    Here is my schedule:

    MATE 202-01 4 Materials Engineering I w/ Lab (I need this for an engineering elective and this is what I chose)

    ENGL 311-01 3 Creative Writing

    MATH 352-01 3 Basic Concepts of Math

    MATH 382-01 3 Probability and Statistics

    MATH 382L-01 1 Probability and Statistics Lab

    MENG 189-01 1 Robotics

    Total: 15 Credit Hours

    I know I have a couple of challenging classes so I was wondering if all of this is too much to handle. If you have any questions let me know and I will answer them.



    NOTE: This was an edit from a previous post with some changes with input from my advisor.

    If you are at a point where you need Basic Math, it does not seem that you are properly prepared for Probability and Statistics, or for Robotics.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that "Basic Math" is not simple algebra or something like that. It's a junior level course, haha

    "Basic Concepts of Math" is NOT a basic math course. It is essentially a class to introduce students to subjects like complex and real analysis and for other 400 level math classes. It has a prereq of calc II. However, I have taken Calc I-III and linear algebra and I am taking ODE's this semester.

    100% correct. It is a 300 level course so it's not like a college algebra class lol.
