What kind of math do I need for a physics major?

  1. Dec 24, 2004 #1
    Specifically for the final two years, can I get by with algebra 1? I kid, I kid. I am done with calc1+2+3 and differential equations but is there any other type of math should I review i.e. iMath, matrix math, etc.

    I don't know what kinda stuff you do in algebra 1 or calc 1, 2,3 or differential equations, but yeah, matrix algebra is useful. Complex numbers are too, vectors also. Probability will also help if you do any statistical mechanics.
