  • To the top, but not beyond. Got my degree in Comp Sci. But didn't bother going further as Certs were more worthwhile.
    • Shaky_1991
      Did you take discrete math?
  • Far enough to remember the "s" on the end (it's maths, not math).
  • All the way to the bottom of the abacus!
  • You would be shocked to know just how much that is on my mind all the time. I keep trying to break through a wall that went up due to trauma. I just knew things at one time so long ago.
  • Quite far. I've taken courses on numerical analysis, complex analysis, partial differential equations, tensor calculus and differential geometry. I audited a class on topology, but didn't get credit, because I already had taken the maximum number of courses allowed for that semester.

      I took Algebra my first year of college (I was 11), and then skipped right to Calculus I. I had a rough time with it, but managed to make a good mark at the end of the course. I took Calculus II the following semester, and then doubled up with Calculus III and Linear Algebra, followed by Differential Equations (ordinary). In my opinion, Differential Equations was the toughest mathematics class I took. Everything after that was challenging in a much different way. Because I majored in physics, I had to take "Intermediate Theoretical Physics," which was exactly the same subject matter as the mathematics department's Differential Equations course, except for the last two weeks of applications. Again, it's just my opinion, but I thought that the applications were a lot more fun than just learning different solution methods. For me, what made Diff. Eq. so difficult was that our professor didn't seem to care about the class. He also wrote our textbook, so both the book and the lectures were equally vague. If you can find a Diff. Eq. course that has integrated application exercises and a good teacher, then it ought to be a pleasurable experience.
