Courses What Math Course is Best Paired with Linear Algebra?

  1. Nov 8, 2016 #1
    I'm currently an applied math major. I'm creating a schedule for my next semester and I have the choice to take either complex variables or vector analysis with linear algebra and a college geometry course(elective of choice), but I don't know which pairing will be less stressful. I am currently taking Calc. 3, differential equations, and a mathematical impossibilities course that is mainly discussion based, and I'm finding little difficulty with keeping up with the workload. So in general which of complex variables and vector analysis would be least intensive?

    I should think vectors would pair well with linear algebra since so much of vector problem sets comes down to coordinate transformations.

    If you look at the description of Linear Algebra you'll notice it works with vector spaces.
