Any advice on a chem major/math minor going into materials science grad degree? Most helpful curriculums? How deep should you take physics/math in undergrad? Job Outlooks/what kind of work expected? Is it really a safe jump for a chem major? Will it be easy to push away from chem and more into the physics/math stuff? I find chemistry unsatisfying.. especially analytical/lab tech work. I'm not very bright in math/physics but the material more rewarding at the end of the day. Relevant side question: Why do so many physics classes not supply a wealth of worked out problems? Every time I go to study I slave over foolish mistakes that stop me from learning 10 x the material I could be learning. I understand that problem solving is important in physics but I personally think that training students to see the methods of working through problems can be very effective rather than deliberately hiding them from the students. Maybe it's just my school, but we aren't even given the solutions after we get our corrected exams. This is baloney because not everyone has time to chase down the professor every time they have a question. Not to mention large classes and one professor makes it near impossible to get one-on-one help.
