My fall semester starts up in 2 more weeks.

I've got-

General Physics I
Calculus I
General Chemistry I
Intro to Anthropology
Beginning Spanish I

For a total of 21 credit hours. Should be a fun and challenging semester. I'm looking forward to dipping my toes into some calculus finally. I've been working ahead in my Calculus book, and looks like a lot of fun so far. :)

Might as well add a high school perspective to this.

Calc III
Physics electricity and magnetism
European History
English literature
French literature (ugh...)
Computer science

I'm expecting a lot of fun next year as long as I can make it through French.

Summer was Astronomy 305. Done.

Fall is Mechanics, calculus I, Entomology (for general ed).

I purposely took my astronomy class in the summer so that I only had to take 3 classes in the fall :D

I forgot to add that I am working on research in one of the physics labs 20 hours a week, and research in an astronomy lab 10 hours a week. That is the reason I am trying to keep my school workload a bit easier this semester. When I am done with my HHMI scholarship I can add more classes again, maybe...

Calculus is hardly what I would classify as "fun"

Lol fair enough. You're a physics major?

  • Calculus I
  • Physics I + lab
  • Music Theory

I'm already at 13 credit hours. The Calculus class is 5 credit hours, as well as Physics. I would take more classes, but I don't want to overdo it. So, possibly next semester I'll take more classes.

I'm also volunteering in a superconductivity lab, and thinking about a part time job...not sure if I'd kill myself if I do that.

lol...It can all get lost in the blur sometimes. I just finished my summer classes like a week ago, and my fall semester starts August 19th. 3 whole weeks off. There was roughly a week in between the end of spring semester and the start of summer classes, so I haven't really had anything resembling a summer break. My entire break before fall starts is basically going to be spent doing math. I've already worked through about half of my geometry text book, to make up for the fact that I've never taken a geometry class. I've also been working through the parts of my trig book that we didn't cover, namely the sections on conics, and rotations of conics. Pretty simple stuff so far. I've also been dipping into the calculus book quite a bit. I've pretty much worked through the whole first chapter on limits and continuity.

You could say I've done a little bit of math this last week. My goal is to finish off this geometry book, and finish the sections of my trig book that we didn't cover, before fall classes start, at the very least.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to challenge you to a duel. Take it back!! :tongue:

I like calculus. I'm an engineering major, nuclear engineer at that. All I work with is differential equations, partial differential equations and calculus concepts. It's just that I wouldn't do calculus for the entertainment of it.

Well, if I was doing it everyday as part of a job(which I will be someday), I probably wouldn't be spending my spare time doing it either. But, I'm just starting to learn it, so it's still new and exciting to me.

Computational calculus is certainly boring. Proof based calculus on the other hand is very fun :wink:

Dunno, I always enjoyed calculating integrals. I wouldn't like it now, but I remember I had great fun doing it when I first learned it.

Wolfram likes it a lot too :biggrin:

I'm looking forward to doing that. I really can't wait to finally get into some calculus. I like long tedious computations.

Some of the calculations that I had in college algebra were incredibly tedious, and would take up an entire page. I enjoy that stuff. Some people like doing sudoku puzzles and things like that...I enjoy doing math. I like the brain exercise. Although once I get a little deeper into calculus, I might not enjoy it so much anymore.
