I just signed up for O-Chem!
    #8803792 - 08/21/08 02:35 AM (10 years, 2 days ago)

I was pretty intimidated by my course load this semester and planned to leave O-Chem out (big bummer).  Which meant id have to wait a full year to get the teacher id like for the O-Chem sequence.

But today I saw a seat become available and said fuck it, sucks that it’s a 7:30 AM class but I nabbed the last seat.  I’m so excited! :smile:

So it looks like my courses will be:

Intro to Engineering
Chemical Processing
Linear Algebra
University of Physics II
Organic Chemistry I

Surely I can handle this, im not even working this semester.  All im worried about is physics as it seems to be my worst subject, and the one I have to work hardest for.  I think ill be ok if I know when to stop studying it so I can move on to my other subjects.

Does anyone know how tough of a class Linear Algebra is?

Is 5 courses the norm at your uni? Here 4 courses is a full load.

Is it a 200 or a 300 level class?  Linear Algebra can be quite difficult indeed.  At my school the civil and environmental engineers take a gimped down, easier version in the 200 level.  The other engineers take the 300 level, which is quite a bit harder.

You will start out with relatively easy stuff, matrices and finding things like their determinants and inverses.  But it then ramps up quite quickly and you do thinks like eigenvalues and orthogonality which can be quite abstract.

I assume you have finished the clac sequence and differential equations?  It will probably take as much time as diff eqs, but I think it is more enjoyable because its more visual and problem solving orientated; where as diff eqs is just memorizing algorithms to solve eqs.

So long's you cook me up some LSD when you're done your education I don't care what you do.

It's important that you're happy though. Enjoy your semester. :smile:

Personally, I think Linear Algebra and O-ChemI are each harder than University Physics II.  But you have the thought that physics will be harder for you.  Its good to be aware of your strengths and weakness.  Did you struggle alot in the first semester to give you this notion that it is harder? 

To me, O-Chem is a monster of a course  :hellfire:

So do the Chemical Engineers :wink:  It's MAT 242, and is the last math class im taking.  Aside from Numerical Methods, but technically that’s an MAE class.

I struggled through first semester Physics in spring.  I think the problem might have been that I wasn’t interested in the subject; the lab bored me and seemed pointless.  I found myself getting the work done, but not absorbing anything.  Magnetism and Electricity sounds more interesting so you never know, I might end up doing quite well.
