Easiest quantitative class for humanities major?

<p>At a top liberal arts school, I have to fill in requirements for the natural science department, but I am not forced to say, take modern analysis or any other specific or deep classes. I can choose computer science, chemistry, physics, stat, etc. </p>

<p>Which class would be most simplest mathematically on the intro levels? Which classes are hardest? What about as you get deeper into the material?</p>

<p>I received a 760 on my Math SAT if that means anything.. but by no means a math expert.</p>

<p>Dude, you got a 760! I got a 670 on Math and I’m going into engineering! Don’t worry about your capability. Seriously out of those I would pick computer science if you like puzzles and statistics if you want something that makes you think.</p>

<p>or if there is an option for astrology, take it :3</p>

<p>Intro to stats (like what AP Stats would cover at your school). Cant imagine not getting an easy A in that class.</p>

<p>You’re clearly not a math idiot, whatever class you sign up for you could do. Pick what you think will be most interesting or try to find one you think might be useful to you somehow, don’t just take the easiest thing you can. </p>

<p>Anyway, at my school we had a class in the EECS (would be your CompSci) department which was pretty cool called Discrete Math. It was an into level class (expect it to be 100 or 200 level at your school) not very hard, but fun. It was like a 2 week introduction to several different topics in math all put together in 1 class. </p>

<p>Here’s a description of that class, if you can find something similar at your school I would recommend it:</p>



<p>Intro to Computer science</p>

<p>Not going to be the easiest class but probably going to be the most useful.</p>

<p>I would recommend one of the following:</p>

<li><p>Statistics: potentially useful</p></li>
<li><p>Geology: the department might have some fun electives (my college has lower-level classes like “Natural Hazards” and “Earth Systems and the Environment”)</p></li>
<li><p>Computer Science: especially courses for non-majors, if they exist. My college has two such curses, “Fluency with Information Technology” and “The World of Computing.” They are conceptual ‘big picture’ survey courses and focus more on technology and less on theory and programming than the intro course for majors.</p></li>

<p>Since you appear to be at least decent in math, a semester each of calculus, statistics, and computer science may be helpful later on.</p>



<p>I doubt colleges count pseudoscience as something fulfills a natural science requirement.</p>

<p>Try calculus, especially if they have one like “applications of calculus” or “business calculus.” Pretty damn easy to me and I got a 590 on my SAT math. </p>

<p>Statistics on the other hand is the root of all evil.</p>
