I just enrolled at the local college for electrical engineering and was wondering what order I should take my classes in? Should I take physics before calc or no? also differential equations, whats it like?
thanks for the quick answer! Ok that's cool , I was never a math wiz but I have most of my prereqs in algebra done just have to do college algebra and I can start with the rest. What about physics with calculus? why do I have to take calc, physics, AND physics WITH calc?I would leave differential at the end of the calculus sequence. I don't see the hurry for differential... it can confuse you if you take differential somewhere in the middle of your calculus sequence.
As far as first semester of calculus, you probably don't need anything other than the concepts of limits, derivative, and anti-derivative (integrals).
There's usually some pre-requisites. It is common that one takes physics 1 after completing calculus 1.
Look at the pre-requisites. It is too vague to tell you what to do....
I tried but the administrative dept at this school sucks, the teachers rock but the people who help you get to them are terrible. None of them know what the hell they are talking about.You should probably talk to an advisor at your school. Generally only they will know which order/course combinations are recommended.
For example, at my school, it's assumed that you'll be taking Calc I concurrently with Phys I despite calculus not being an explicit co-requisite.
