Isnt spring ending? Wheres the Summer/Fall topic

Depends how you call the terms. At my school the Winter term is about to end and spring term starts in less than 2 weeks. I'm pretty sure this is the case for many, if not most, schools in North America.

And for my spring schedule:
- Engineering Dynamics
- Technical Writing
- Chilling

I think maybe it's different in the States. Spring is ending now and Summer is starting.

Summer:
BioPhysics Research!
Fall:
Quantum Mechanics
Classical Mechanics
Physics Writing
Complex Variables

I'm thinking of just throwing an easy course into the Spring schedule just to add some credits. I think it's going to be quite a semester.

I'll jump on the Summer/Fall bandwagon too.

Summer:
-Computer Logic and Organization
-Physics II

Math classes in my school are sometimes hard to come by (all of the upper-level ones are offered only once per year), so I've been putting off these two courses until the Summer, when I have nothing better to take. I'll also be doing some graph theory research, I think.

Fall:
-Analysis I
-Abstract Algebra I
-Combinatorics/Graph Theory II
-Introduction to Communications

One of these is a gen-ed (guess which!), but I have to get it out of the way at some point and I figure that the other classes are sufficiently challenging (one of them is grad-level) that I'll be pretty busy. Especially when you factor in work and research and the like.

You guys have 4 semesters? :s We have two of 13 weeks each. and a summer break from july till halfway september.

Since we are talking about next fall, I will jump on with all of next year.

Fall
Calc III
Modern Physics
Real Analysis
Math Methods for the Physical Sciences and Engineering
Discrete Methods (pretty much just graph theory)

Spring
Linear Algebra
Intro to Operations Research
Thermodynamics
Quantum Mechanics
Euclidean and Non-Euclidean Geometries (looking forward to more than any other)

Should be fun, also it's pretty funny that for both semesters I have each of the 3 math profs and 2 physics profs for 1 class. That is what happens at a tiny school.

We have three: Fall, Spring and Summer. Fall and Spring are the traditional semesters. I'm not sure if this is common in the States, but all of the Universities I'm acquainted with also have different terms in each semester...like Summer A, Summer B, Summer C; the date ranges for these terms are different.

Okay, so, I have a question about a possible amendment to my Fall schedule, above. The advisor in my department has been encouraging me to take a course in Advanced Linear Algebra. I'm certainly not against the idea, since I've had two courses in linear algebra already and am quite into the subject, so I'm all for learning more. The issue is, it's a graduate class, and since I don't want to drop any of my other three math classes, it would mean that I'd be taking two grad classes in the same semester. Has anyone had any experience with that and if so, how did that work out?

In short, I'm considering this schedule:

Analysis I
Abstract Algebra I
Combinatorics and Graph Theory II (graduate-level)
Advanced Linear Algebra and Matrix Theory (graduate-level)

To give a little bit of context, I know all of the professors for these courses (I've had two of them already) and all of them are fairly reasonable. I've also had a handful of rigorous math classes in the past, so I'm not entirely unprepared, but still, it's a bit daunting. Any thoughts?

Real Analysis and Abstract/Modern Algebra are usually at or near the peak of an undergraduate mathematics program. That along with two graduate level courses could make life extremely difficult on you. The difficulty you could very easily face is being spread out too thinly. If you plan on pulling it off make sure that you won't have too many other time commitments during the semester. If you do manage to do well during that, then you will have a much smaller leap to graduate school than most.

Summer
Circuit Analysis I
Intro to Philosophy
Intro to Engineering II

Fall

Circuit Analysis II
Electronic Circuits I w/ Lab
Modern Computational Methods
Linear Algebra
Foundations of Mathematics (intro to proofs)
Prob/Stat for Engineers


Gonna be a boring summer and a crazy fall v_v

Here's what I'm probably gonna be in next semester:

Introductory Electricity and Magnetism
Classical Mechanics
Elementary Physics Lab
Advanced Calculus
Advanced Linear Algebra.

Sounds like a fun time right?

Fall:

Intermediate Mechanics
Introductory Thermodynamics
Calculus III
Ordinary Differential Equations

And either

Experimental Methods in Physics
or
Introduction to Probability and Statistics

I'm really on the fence because exp methods is a completely optional course that only comes around every 2 years or so and is a prereq for one upper level electronics class/lab combo while intro to prob and statistics is a course I'll absolutely need later on, but I'm not sure if I'll need it next year.

How about somebody start a new Summer/Fall thread?

I started this one, somebody else start the next one, I'm lazy.

How could you?! This is your PF legacy -_-
