The Math I Will Take In College

837 words - 4 pages

While I don't know exactly what field I want to study or pursue throughout college, and further into my working days, I have always liked Engineering and Physical Sciences. Unfortunately, if I don't get into The North Carolina School of Science and Math (NCSSM) this year, I won't likely be able to afford any school other than NC State. So, at NC State I would either chose to study for a BA in Physics, or a BS in Chemical Engineering, mainly because I find chemistry and pre-calc fun, but also because they are fun to tell people about.

Unfortunately I don't qualify for much financial aid because both of my parents went to college, and they make a reasonable amount, but hopefully I'll do well enough with the IB Programme or at NCSSM to get a big scholarship. Anyway back to the courses, nothing much surprised me about any of the courses for either degree except that you are required to take statistics in order to be a physicist. I guess it's important for data collection, but it seems to me like calculus would be a much more important class for this degree. Also, order to take the first course required for each major, I would need to pass pre-calc with at least a C and thanks to your great teaching I am!
So, according to the Curricula Requirements page on NC States webpage, the math courses needed to get the Physics degree outweigh the number needed to get the Chemical Engineering degree. The math needed is also exactly...
