## Main Question or Discussion Point

I am currently taking an introductory QM course...well, first...I find my prof is of no help at all...he's really bad at explaining concepts...and can't even speak English. So...I am basically learning on my own. I understand the stuffs he talk in his lectures, but when the assignments come, the questions have nothing to do with what he talked about.

Well, to my point...just HOW MUCH math do you need to know BEFORE taking an intro QM course?? I already finished vector calculus (so I guess that's end of 2nd year calc for the standard uni level)...also I finished an intro to DE course...and an intro to linear algebra. But when I look in a QM textbook...the math comes out of nowhere...it's very frustrating.

I do find the tutorials on this forum on QM very helpful...it's actually where I learn about QM. :tongue2:
