Hi, I'm an applied math major who wants to go to grad school for molecular biology. In my plan, I have included:
Intro to cell biology & lab
Intro to genetics
Intro to microbiology
molecular biology & lab
advanced cell biology
bioinformatics
biological sequence analysis
intro to...
Hello,
I am a second-year student studying mathematics at university. But give the pure nature of the subject, I have always worried about being unemployed after I graduate. So I thought of majoring in computer science because there are so many jobs in industry.
However, I never liked...
Hello,
I am a rising second year student studying mathematics. Back in high school when I chose to study math, I did not worry much about getting a job because I planned to do a double major with computer science. Then after two weeks of my CS course, I realized that I absolutely hate...
"Electives" in grad school?
Hello PF,
I am an undergrad student majoring in one of the STEM field. I have a strong interest in particle physics, but I am not really interested in any other discipline of physics. For this reason, I don't think going to grad school in physics is not a...
Our math program requires only three math courses per semester so I can elect to take less intesive courses like music or french but our physics program requires four to five physics and math courses per semester. Because of this, I thought of taking three courses per semester and stay a bit...
I am a slow learner and I prefer to spend lots of time on few subjects rather than to distribute time over many. In addition, most of my courses will be extremely time consuming. So I probably want to take three courses per term and I will most likely attain a much higher GPA in this way, but I...
As of my first term at uni, I got 83, 64, 84, 84, 95, (all equally weighted) with the average of 82. 82 is equivalent to 3.7, but if I were to assign each percentage grade a 4.0-scale-grade then I would get (3.7 + 2 + 3.7 + 3.7 + 4) / 5 = 3.42... Which one is the correct calculation?
(Wow that...
Homework Statement
Let S be a set with an operation * which assigns an element a*b of S for any a,b in S. Let us assume that the following two rules hold:
1. If a, b are any objects in S, then a*b = a
2. If a, b are any objects in S, then a*b = b*a

Hi I am a first year student studying mathematics. I have been experimenting with various subjects to find my thing, and I think I am interested in discrete mathematics, particulary in number theory and cryptography.
1) But it seems like, there aren't many companies that are explicitly...
Hello,
I am currently a college freshman finishing up my second term. About an year ago, I was absolutely determined to study mathematics or physics in college and pursue graduate studies. I ended up choosing math, took intro analysis (analysis seems to be more appropriate due the content of...
I was able to solve most of excercise questions in textbook when I was in high school, but as I expected, university level mathematics is really difficult. I have been studying baby Rudin but I cannot solve most of excercise questions unless I see the solution first. But I am really worried...
Around fifteen percent of people with a BS degree in mathematics or physics get a job in IT sector, but I was wondering why IT companies would sometimes hire people without a formal computer science degree. Is taking one or two C++ programming courses sufficient to get a job as a C++ developer...
Hi
I am an undergrad interested in learning time series analysis by himself. Other than the obvious prerequisite courses - 2nd year Calculus and Statistics - what else should I teach myself in prepreation for learning time series analysis?
Thanks
So it seems like the most popular career choice for physics major is software development, perhaps because of its gigantic industry, but I hate computer programming. I am taking the easiest computer science course at my university, and although I am getting good marks, I hate every bit of weekly...
Despite I have been told that there are plenty of jobs for statisticians, it seems like there aren't that many jobs on indeed or other websties as I thought, or at least that of software-related jobs. It also seems like there are way more quantitative analyst jobs than statistics jobs. Although...
Hello dear members,
I am a college freshman majoring in undeclared major. (:P) I have strong passion for music and mathematics, but I think I will have a hard time finding a decent job if I combine those two. So as of now I am thinking of majoring music and computer science. I hear that the...
(I know this has been discussed extensively, but please read my situation.)
Hello,
I will be a college freshman in this fall to begin my studies in the sciences. I have equal passion for both subjects so I am going to choose whichever I am better at. I have seen a number of threads in this...
Like many other posters here, I am interested in pure mathematics and physics who wants to open postgrad school options in engineering. It would be so nice if I can do a double degree in engineering and mathematics or physics, but my school won't allow it due to the heavy course load of their...
Many people believe that one's maths competitions performances are the standard way of judging one's mathematical ability. But how exactly problems like 'determine a prime number p such that 2^p + p^2 is also prime' is related to 'the insolvability of the quintics' or 'Godel's incompleteness...
Hi. I will be starting undergraduate studies in mathematics in this autumn. Given the unemployable nature of the subject only with a bachelor's degree, I will most definitely pursue graduate studies. At this point, I am not wholly determined to go for a Ph.D., and I am not sure about my...
Hello everyone. I am an international student who wishes to pursue a bachelors degree in mathematics or statistics. I am doing quite well in my senior year (90+% or 7 in IB HL Maths), although I do realise that high school grades do not matter much in studying the 'real' mathematics. I have been...
