Hello, I need help deciding on whether to take ODE (MAP2302) and Calc III during the summer. Would it be wise to take ODE along with Calc III in the same semester? Some people have told me to take Calc III first because there are a few things in ODE that are taught in Calc III, but others have told me that it is doable. ODE will only be a summer A class, meaning that the class will be taught at a fast pace. My concern is that I won't be able to keep up with the material since there are things that I haven't learned yet. I'm not too concerned about Calc III because the class will take up both semesters (summer A and B). However, I have been told that my instructor likes to move at a fast pace. So to sum it all up my concerns are: will I be able to keep up with both classes? (knowing that they will move at a fast pace since they will be during the summer terms) and will I be completely lost in ODE since I didn't take Calc III yet?

On a similar note, how much (if at all) do hyperbolics come up in ODE and Calc III? My Calc II professor only spent like 10 or 15 minutes talking about them; we weren't tested on them, so I have no clue what they're used for or how to solve them.

If I decide to take them both at the same time, what material should I self-study from Calc III for ODE?

Suggestions and feedback are greatly appreciated.
