    I'm just wondering
    im going into 2nd year. ..I'm taking Analysis I, Differential Equations Calc III ,Probability all in the same semester and then Abstract Alg I , Linear Alg II , calc IV in 2nd semester

    Just wondering what I can expect for the differnet years...how much more intense it is

    It will be as intense as you want it to be. You can take it easy and do the bare minimum and basically it will be like mathwonk described.

    Or you can choose to challenge yourself and excel beyond expectations.

    I'd say it's intense. I'm no math major, but past the first year you'll be doing a lot more proof-intensive stuff.

    Well for someone who is not a math major it might seem intense but for someone who is going to graduate school in math it is different.

    He didn't say he was going on to grad school.

    He also asked what first year of grad school would be like.
    So a hypothesis for us is that he would continue to be a math major and go to grad school.

    Beware of mickey though, a talking mouse is always something to be alert of, look at dangermouse, he's dangerous!
