Linear Algebra and Discrete Math at the same time?

  1. Sep 22, 2014 #1
    I am a math major currently in a community college reputed for having an outstanding math department, lucky me :D. I am taking Calculus 2 this semester. Next semester I'll be taking Calculus 3 with linear algebra or discrete math. Can I take all three at the same time or would it be an overkill? Like I mentioned earlier, the math department is the best there is.

    It really depends on what other courses you're taking. I also took linear algebra and discrete at the same time. It's possible, but varies from school to school of course.

    Well! If I take Calculus 3, Linear Algebra and Discrete Math together, only other course I'll take with these classes is either computer science or analytical physics 1.

    It depends partly on what Calculus 3 is. In some schools, calculus 1 is differentiation and 2 is integration. In other, 1 is single variable and 2 is multivariable.

    Nonetheless it is probably manageable with a good work ethic.
