Im currently a sophomore who's planning on getting a degree in Theoretical and Mathematical physics. While im in high school will/have take(n):

Algebra 1

Geometry

Algebra 2

Trigonometry (online)

Pre-Calculus

Calculus

I will be able to take one more math class online the summer after my junior year. I'm wondering which class would be most helpful for my chosen degree. Any ideas?

218Junior Member8New Member3,228Senior MemberAll this said, if you insist on taking a math course in the summer of your junior year take one in discrete math. I would stay away from more advanced calculus/differential equation courses unless you have matching science courses that would use that knowledge.

8New Member3,228Senior MemberI'm not quite sure what you mean by a theoretical/mathematical physics class. The math would depend on the textbook that is used in that class. Is the focus of the class advanced mechanics, or optics, or electromagnetism? In any case, there are no doubt math prerequisites for such a class, most likely differential equations. If so you can consider taking such a class in the summer.

8New MemberI wasnt really specific with what the class will be because im not exactly sure what it will be since it wouldnt be offered at my school so i will have to find it elsewhere. It will probably be a cosmology class.
