I'm a sophomore in high school. I'm taking pre-cal right now. I really enjoy theorizing about both math and physics, but what I don't like is endlessly repeating simple math that I already know how to do. I'd enjoy using some of that to help solve complex problems, but I do not enjoy doing simple repetitive math for it's own ends. Which of the two, physicist or mathematicians, does less repetetive problems and does more challenging problems?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
