Main Question or Discussion Point

I was planning to take differential equations with Linear Algebra, but there is a conflict so I can't take both.

Finally there is a course called Introduction to Linear Programming

Introduction to Linear Programming

Linear programming problems, dual problems, the simplex algorithm, solution of primal and dual problems, sensitivity analysis. Additional topics chosen from: Karmarkar's algorithm, non-linear programming, game theory, applications.
In my Physics/Math Calendar, it doesn't say I have to take it, so I am wondering what is it really...

Also, in my Calendar, for some reason it says Mathematical Proof is optional for even Math majors...



Feels like some sort of Computer Science Major thing

Anyone...?

My upperclassmen advised me AGAINST taking Mathematical Proof because the average is almost alawys 54%~ish with highest mark being 80%~ish over the last three years...

What is your question?
Should I take Linear Algebra + Mathematical Proof in the summer. How important is Mathematical Proof for Math/Physics majors? Does Mathematical Proof complement LA?

You need to talk to your advisor.

I know you said you don't know who he is. You need to find out.

No, this one different, I found the one I have on my college, but I am studying at another campus.

Wait, can you tell me what is an academic adviser? This job sounds too general, does this person help with every major out there?

There are usually a couple of advisors in every department.
