# Thread: Whats the highest level of math you can take?

1. ## Whats the highest level of math you can take?

Just wondering whats the highest level, where you are technically declared a mathematician.

2. Tensor calculus

Don't sleep on college geometry or you will be seeing F's in the first month.

4. phd dissertation on something you researched and proved yourself.

W.T.F. is tensor calc. never even heard of it, and what do you apply it to?

How hard is coll. geometry? Example problems?

6. ...uhhh i dont think they take a college geometry. The only geometry you can take in college is HS level geometry, and that doesnt give you the University or state school credits. My calculus teacher said geometry is point less to be tought cause you learn what you need from geometry in trig.

7. Anything with linear algebra and or differential geometry. I believe tensor calculus combines both of those into one class. Linear algebra will eat your face =\. Differential equations is generally accepted as the highest level you can take at most universities

8. Business Math (like a pre cal)

It is usually a 4000 or 5000 level class in undergrad and required for all math teachers. I took it for an elective because all the other classes were a joke. Some examples off my head:

-Prove why the sum of angles in a triangle is 180 degrees
-Prove why two lines are parallel

10. Fourier Analysis & Partial Differential Equations was the highest I took

None of you guys have done math until you've done

laplace transform

Linear algebra was a joke. I got like 102 or 103 in that class overall (serious) LOL. Diff EQ is the real deal but is doable.

13. Also, if you really care, linear algebra can be seen at:

http://cnx.org/content/m10734/latest/

Thats a sample of a fairly simple problem.

It's used for crazy applications, a lot of times in high end computer programming =)

14. math sucks

just thought i'd put that out there.

15. You think linear / multilinear algebra is a joke? Wtf... when are you going to start proposing your own theorems then?

I am a math minor and I am not a teacher. I'm a nuclear engineer and proposing my power plant. F*** theorems LOL.

17. you can never study all of maths.... even when you become a prof you r specialising in just 1 field of research. for ur PhD you have to 'invent' something new in maths

thats more of an electical engineering thing than something math guys use

19. Linear algebra isn't the highest, lol. Unless there are some harder courses on it later on in my degree. I'm a 3rd year math major, btw, and I've taken two linear algrebra courses.

I've heard that tensor calculus is the most advanced, but I don't know if that's undergrad or graduate. Partial diff. equations is bad, so are some courses on advanced ring theory (abstract algebra) and whatnot.

20. If I do anything harder than algebra I fuking suck. Math is definantly not my subject haha

21. laplace is actually easy, just looks hard if u havent been taught it

22. Warp Physics

Yeah that's true (I think it's used for solving circuit problems and stuff). It's still a basic tool for solving DE's though, and was taught to me. Laplace transforms are actually some of the easiest things that I've done... not hard or advanced at all. At least the applications that I've seen.

24. I've got a degree in mathematics, and I definitely don't consider myself a mathematician. You can only call yourself one if you do it professionally (either lecturer or a research scientist).

25. im in cal 2 right now :\

26. i hear cosmic inversion theory is pretty hard.

what do math researchers research?

28. If you get your PhD in Aerospace engineering there is a class equivalent to Calculus 5, forgot what it's called... my dad's friend took it, hes a genius

30. im in diff eq and thats the highest needed for mechanical engineering at my college.
