Hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am a physics major at UCF and currently have decided to pick up a math minor. The physics program is requiring calc 1,2,3 and differentials. The math minor is the same + a 3000 level course + a 4000 level course.

I decided to take matrix and linear algebra as the 3000 level elective. I am leaning towards taking Mathematical Modeling I for the 4000 level course. I heard recommendations of Linear algebra, but this class requires a proof class and the linear matrix class to take. I would satisfy the minor without it. Should I suck up the extra time and do it?

I am currently completing calc I and plan to take Calc II and Phy I over the summer. In the fall then I would takes Differientals, Calc III, Phy II, Intro to C Program, and Macroeconomics. In the spring I would take PHY III, the matrix/linear algebra course, intro to theoretical physics, a gen ed, and an undecided 5th course.

I was wondering if I could receive some advice. I am still at a point I could basically switch to any science major without any problem almost. Would you recommend not doing physics? I have been leaning towards almost everything but chemistry. I was interested in the information technology majors but worry about those being possibly low income?

Is there any minors you would recommend? Computer science? Would an information technology minor be a waist of my time?

^^ Thank you
