**Need help with Summer/Fall classes :(**

WOW ... UH has the worst schedule system ever!!! Ok, so I'm transferring to a University this year. I would really love to get advice on what courses to take.

Background: I started studying Mathematics around 2 years ago at the age of 21, so I didnt grow up thinking "mathematically." I really enjoy math, and I've pushed myself hard to self-study past courses I didn't take seriously. I've been tutoring math at my college for a year now. I have a strong Algebra-Trigonometry-Calculus foundation, and my only weak subject (precalculus) is Geometry, and so I am planning on self-studying it this summer. I am very textbook, I read everything; I do the examples and proofs. I have taken Calculus 1, 2, and 3. I'm hard working and I do not use a solution's manual, I've learned the importance of thinking for myself!!! I usually won't ask for help till I've spent a few hours on a problem.

Ok, I would like to take the following courses: I have also outlined the days/times ... I really cannot believe some of these courses start when one ends. Also, I plan on working at least 20 hrs a week and private tutoring.

Course Number Section Professor Days Time

Summer 1 & 2: It's a must for me to take Linear Algebra because it's a pre-req for so many of my Fall courses. I'm still debating on Abstract Algebra, but I think it would be wise for me to take this class to get my brain thinking "abstract" since the only math I've been exposed to is problem solving.

Linear Algebra I 2331 25188 Edward Dean MTWTH 10:00-12:00

Abstract Algebra 3330 19846 Matthew O'Malley MTWTH 10:00-12:00

Fall: I think my best choices are Advanced Linear Algebra I, Differential Equations, Intermediate Analysis, and Vector Analysis. I have never taken a Probability or Statistics course, but if I Probability fits my schedule, I am willing to self-study from the Intro. to Prob/Stat book (I don't think I will be taking it since ev1 keeps telling me it's too easy. My co-worker told me not to take it either, it would be a waste of money.)

Abstract Algebra 3330 24198 Siemion Fajtlowicz MWF 10:00-11:00 (If I don't take this in the summer, should I take this in the Fall and not take Intermediate Analysis?)

Probability 3338 24216 Emmanouil Papadakis MWF 12:00-1:00

Discrete Mathematics 3336 24212 Siemion Fajtlowicz MW 1:00-2:30 (Should I couple this with Abstract Algebra?)

Intermediate Analysis 3333 24206 Gordon Johnson MW 2:30-4:00 (Abstract Algebra + Discrete Mathematics and save this course for Spring? But this is a pre-req for Adv. Multi-variable Calculus!!!)

or

Advanced Linear Algebra I 4383 24270 John Hardy TTH 10:00-11:30 (I think it would be best to take this course after taking Linear Algebra in the summer)

Probability 3338 24218 Fabien Marpeau TTH 10:00-11:30

Vector Analysis 3335 24210 Richard Sanders TTH 10:00-11:30 (I've been introduced to Vectors in Precalculus, Physics, and Calculus 3.)

Differential Equations 3331 24202 Edward Dean TTH 11:30-1:00 (I really want to take this course)

Introduction to Fixed Income Math 3340 32295 James Auchmuty TTH 11:30-1:00 (I want to go to grad. school for Finance)

Intermediate Analysis 3333 24202 Giovanna Guidoboni TTH 1:00-2:30
