I am just curious about what classes need to be taken to become a mathematician. Thanks!
There are 2 branches applied or pure.
Typically the calculus serious, real analysis, differential geomeotry/topology, linear algebra, diff. Equations. Then you have to figure out what branch of mathematics you want to atudy.
Going to a university webpage and looking under degree programs shoild give you a list of classes.
Applied math programs rarely make you so Diff geo, topology. From what I have seen
Analysis ( advanced calculus )
Proof based Linear Algebra
Electives in Diff Geo, topology, ect.
Differential equations + Partial
Numerical analysis ( computer math programming)
Elective math course.
These are the norms at most university's. I am not sure what math class you have taken thus far, but upper division pure math will be far from anything you have done before. I am only in calculus 1 but have self studied a lot of pure math with a professor and it is SO much different and much more interesting to me since I hate application problems.
