My problem comes when trying to choose a math class. Now that I have Calculus II credit (or soon will), my options really open up. I have three lower-division classes to choose from,

-Linear Algebra

-Differential Equations with Applications

-Multivariable Calculus and Applications

All three have the one prerequisite of Calc. II.

Looking at other classes down the line, I see that it would be to my advantage to get Diff. Equations and Multivariable Calc. out of the way as quickly as possible since they are required to get into the Physics classes I want (and, of lesser importance, more advanced math). But is there any advantage in taking Linear Algebra first…or at all? I do not see that being very important (at least as a pre-req. for other classes). Is there a preferred order in which to take Diff. Equations and Multivariable Calc.?

And then there is the other option of taking one of them over the summer as well.
