Hello, I am preparing to start college and I'm looking for assistance in how to order my courses. Before taking any Physics courses, my school requires you complete Calculus 1. After taking Calculus 1, I will be eligible for Physics 1. Would it be wise to complete Calculus 2 before beginning Physics 1, or should succeeding in Calculus 1 adequately prepare me for Physics 1? A description of Physics 1: This course is a calculus-based study of the mechanics of rigid bodies, emphasizing Newton's laws and its applications. This course includes an introduction to fluids. It is designed for engineering, physical science, and computer science majors. Also, after Calculus 2, I'll need to take Ordinary Differential Equations, Multivariable Calculus, and Linear Algebra. What would be the preferable order to take these classes? My planned major is Aerospace Engineering. I'm starting at a community college and expecting to spend 3 years competing prerequisite transfer classes, so taking extra time to get everything done doesn't worry me.
