Courses Maths Course Question

  1. Jan 15, 2012 #1
    Hi, I am student from u of t.
    I want to ask MAT224 or MAT244 is easier?
    Btw, I have already taken MAT223, but not good though.
    Thanks a lot!

    I don't think we can help here since course numberings are specific to the school you go to.

    MAT244 or MAT247? MAT244 doesn't even contain the same material as MAT224. Anyway, MAT247 is a much better "math course", it's for the math specialists.

    But what if i have taken MAT223, is it similar to MAT224?
    Is MAT244 hard?

    As wisvuze already mentioned, it's hard to compare the two courses since they contain different materials: MAT224 is linear algebra, while MAT244 is an ODE course.

    In any case, I would guess that you need to put in some work for MAT224 if you struggled in MAT223, since it's a continuation of the latter. As for MAT244, you need to be comfortable with the things you learned in your first-year calculus course (derivatives, integrals, sequences and series etc.). Also, it helps if you study ahead and learn a bit of multivariate calculus.
