Summer Quarter Courseload

<p>Could someone give me an indication of the average courseload for the summer quarter (I'm unsure if this differs from the others) at UW? I'm going to be taking Mechanics, Electromag/Oscilliations, and Math Reasoning (Math 300) which is 13 credits and would like some indication of how rigorious the courses are and how time-consuming.</p>

<p>I've already taken both mechanics and electromag on an AP Physics: C level, so they shouldn't be a problem, I don't think.</p>

<p>Well, I may be a bit more insane than the average college student, but I'm taking 18 credits over the summer, but I'm not terribly worried. I dont know if your classes are offered Aterm, Bterm or both, but professors (in my experience) are usually a bit more lax during the summer and let classes out a bit earlier. Those classes sound extremely difficult and rigorous though, especially at the UW, so you should have your work cut out for you. However, I don't know your background in the subject areas or what year you are, besides what you mentioned. Props for taking the initiative and I wish you luck!</p>

<p>All of my classes are full-term and I decided to add a differential equations course, so I'm at 16 now, but no more!</p>
