Advice: Interested in Joint Bachelor Master in Mathematics at U Chicago.

<p>As of now, one of my chief academic interests is mathematics. I know the University of Chicago has a joint program. I have also heard that it is difficult to qualify for this because one needs to pass into their Honor Real Analysis class upon entrance. My question is what does one need to know in order to do well enough on the placement test to enter this class and moreover, thrive in Analysis.</p>

<p>From information I have been able to gather, it appears that one needs to be very adept at AP Calculus BC topics including limits (with episilon and delta), continuity, integrals (with supremun and Infemum), derivatives, and taylor explansions. Does one need to know the topics of multivariable Calculus such as vectors, partial derivatives, multiple integrals, Green's, Stoke's, Divergence Theorem, etc.? Do we need to know Linear Algebra for Real Analysis? Are Multivariable Calculus and Linear Algebra the prerequisites or necessary skills in Honor Real Analysis, or are they the topic of study in that class?</p>

<p>I am familar with topics of Calculus BC and Multivariable Calculus from my high school and College class. However, I am aware that AP test, which grants 5 to anyone who can score over about 60%, and other college classes may not be comparable to University of Chicago math classes. If I brush on and learn some more advance topics of Calculus, will I have a chance to place into their Honor Real Analysis and do well?</p>

<p>This is discussed extensively in the Math at UChicago thread that's a little way down the page, by actual students who know what they are talking about. Including the criteria for getting placed in Honors Analysis. And the fact that the joint degree is basically both impossible and useless, and no one does it. (Everyone good enough to qualify is probably going to go to graduate school, where the simultaneous MA won't mean anything. Everyone good enough to qualify who isn't going to go to graduate school will be looking for a job where he doesn't need to know the extra stuff he would be taking for the MA.)</p>
