What to study now?

  1. May 19, 2013 #1
    I couldn't find an appropriate place for this; this was the closest. If this is in the wrong place, could someone let me know?
    So I'm a sophomore in high school, and I"ve finished self studying Physics C. I'm taking the class oficially for the credits next year, but my main question is, what to do now? I'm going to be taking a Modern Physics college course this summer, and trying to learn computer programming in C. What should I study next?
    Thanks for any advice!

    You could study Calculus or Vector Calculus if you've already studied Calculus. Vector Calculus is useful in undergrad Classical Mechanics and Electromagnetic theory and brings a lot of math concepts together in one place.

    You could learn Java or C++ as a follow-on to C to gain some skills in Object Oriented programming.

    You could check out the Open Source Physics simulations at www.compadre.org/osp and learn about computational physics.
