I'm switching from aerospace engineering to mathematics.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'll take any and all advice / suggestions / comments you might have

Here are my reasons:

1.) I feel as if the aero program gives only the bare minimum math

required to get through. I want to go on to grad school in Aero E, and

eventually work in R & D, which Ithinkrequires lots of deep math

2.) I feel as if my math ability has weakened considerably

2.) A double major / minor is not possible (scheduling issues)

3.) I would rather have a solid foundation in math/ theory, and find its applications, as

opposed to technical knowledge and knowing only the necessary maths

Here are my concerns:

1.) My algebra is terrible. I'm embarrassed to admit I let my TI-89 manipulate variables / equations, factor terms, etc. I'm sure I could do it by hand, but its definitely not like second nature.

I like math a lot, although I'm not the best at it. I imagine myself being better one day.

I want to know what you think about this. Any math people have advice/ comments? Engineers?

Thanks, I really appreciate it

Forgot to mention, I'm not in pure math. I'll be doing an applied math track, with math + upper aero courses,

like aerodynamics, gas dynamics, controls, flight dynamics
