I am beginning to wish I never took any either. I am neck deep in differential equations, linear algebra, etc... I just wonder how the hell these 17th - 19th century mathematicians came up with all this crap. A seemingly infinite amount of operations that I have to struggle to memorize for hours a day. I even dream about math each night. Oh the fun of engineering school!

I used to enjoy that stuff.

But I'm wondering if I've misunderstood the education system wherever you are. I was doing that calculus stuff at maybe age 15 (i.e. pre-college). What are the college years in your country?

Differential equations and linear algebra are sophomore classes in college here in the United States. Only math, certain science majors and engineers take these classes. There are many, many different types of calculus classes ranging from the basics to very advanced classes only in graduate school.

Math major: hardest thing for me was staying in school knowing I could learn more on my own...
I always told my friends that smart people majored in engineering and science...And smarter people avoided it...bc it's too much work...our own work is always better

Interesting read this thread. Sadly I left school aged 8 and went to work in the bush. I wish I had the opportunity to go to high school and university. I always wanted to be a professor of history but it did not go that way.

Appreciate your education guys. I've been trying to catch up all my life.

Physical chemistry was the hardest for me, both thermodynamics and quantum mechanics.

I loved physical chemistry - phase change, Helmholz Free Energy, chemical potential, ... Smile

I have a B.Sc. in maths and an MS in comp sci. Differential equations was the hardest for me; it seemed ad hoc and non-systematic.

I couldn't afford to finish college, so I agree. Too many people take it for granted.

I finished college with two degrees plus a certificate and I have so many loans it's unreal! I am thinking of going back for a third degree-but dread the loan payments!
