Quick question regarding combined classes

  1. Nov 7, 2008 #1
    I have never taken calculus or physics, but for my major I require both. I am wondering if it is reasonable to take calculus I and physics with calculus I at the same time. Thank you.

    At my school, Calc-based Physics 1 ( mechanics, mostly ) only made use of very simple calculus ( derivatives only ). I'm not sure how other schools teach it. If you can pick up differentiation quickly ( it's not difficult ), then I'd say go for it.
