I am finishing my requirements for transfer at the local cc to a university as a math major. My course schedule for fall. Calculus 3 (Multi Variable) PHYSICS 102 (electricity and magnetism/ freshman EM ?) Intro Differential Equations. The problems is that the two 2 teachers for Calculus 3 and Physics, are preaty hard, that's why I chose them. I learn alot with them. Now, my major concern is is the intro o.d.e course. The instructor is extremely lazy, is never around office hours, skips sections (you are tested on sections he skips). Preaty lousy guy overall and has preferred treatment for a certain group of people. He is the only one that teaches this course at my cc. Would it be too much time to learn O.D.E on my own, without anyone's help (there is no tutoring at my school for classes above cal 2), no instructor help, while also taking challenging professors and trying to get an A? My integration skills are great. I have not reviewed series since the end of my cal 2 course 1 year ago. I can rush review 5 weeks. (Taking a biology 5 week course in the second part of summer session). I am currently reviewing Calculus material. I got to beginning of cal 2. Do I need Calculus 3 to do well in O.D.E? Kind of worried because this instructor is not so great as mentioned previously. I will be working 6 hours a week and volunteering about 10 maybe 12 hours a week. However, I have no car, so at least 2 hour and half is going to spent on the bus commute. I am on track to transfer. I have until next spring semester to finish everything. So it preaty much comes downs do I want to finish in the winter or spring.
