I'm in AP Calc BC right now and I'm bored to tears with my class. A majority of the problems are stuff like this:

"A particle is moving along the x-axis so that its position at t ≥ 0 is given by s(t) = (t)In(3t). Find the acceleration of the particle when the velocity is first zero."

**and I hate it.**

I've caught myself straight-up falling asleep while trying to do my homework assignments. I self-study in my free time (currently Analysis and Abstract Algebra) and I really enjoy those subjects - as in I spend most of my free time writing proofs. I really want to be a math major, but I don't how much of the degree is taken up by classes like my calc one. It feels hypocritical to say I want to do math as a career but almost literally hate my math class. I guess I prefer theoretical stuff, but I don't know if that's something I would have to wait to get to a graduate level to really enjoy. Has anyone else experienced something like this? What is a math major really like?
