ANSWERS: 4

Yes; I was a math major in college, so I have taken Calculus I (derivatives and integrals mainly), Calculus II (series, improper integrals, etc), and Calculus III (multivariable calculus).


Lefty2019What about differential equations and linear algebra?

Clara WhoYes, those were part of the curriculum. I also took probability, number theory, and abstract algebra. I accepted a good job offer at the start of my senior year in college, so that was as far as my formal math studies went.

bostjan the adequate 🥉Was advanced calculus not required for a math major? Topics like improper integrals, differential geometry, continuity, etc.

Clara WhoMy experience was in the 1980's at the University of Washington. Differential geometry wasn't part of the undergrad curriculum, but I think continuity and a more indepth look at improper integrals would have been part of the senior year courses in real analysis.

bostjan the adequate 🥉Interesting. I was doing most of my mathematics courses in the 1990's, but also took a few in the early 2000's in grad school. Since I studied physics, there was a pretty good focus on differential geometry, tensor algebra, and tensor calculus, and a little bit of set theory as it had to do with rotations and transformations, but not so much on the more abstract concepts of elementary algebra that my counterparts in the mathematics department had to focus on. Still, three quarters of the students in my abstract algebra classes were mathematics majors.

Clara WhoI hope the original poster won't mind if I test to see if some math symbols work on this site. Subscript: ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?? ? ? Superscript: ? ¹ ² ³ ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?¹ ?² ?³ ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?¹? ?¹¹ ?¹² ?¹? ²? ³? ²? ³? ²³ ?³? H?O(?) H?O? H? OH? NH?? ? ± ? ? ? ? ?

Clara WhoNope ... which will make it nigh impossible to provide any answers requiring math symbols beyond arithmetic.

bostjan the adequate 🥉We don't even get to use carriage return. ?

Clara WhoI don't think so, but I'll try it again in this comment, using both 'Enter' and 'ShiftEnter', the latter of which sometimes works on other sites. (pressed Enter after that period) I think this site is set up for short conversational answers. {pressed ShiftEnter after that period)

Clara WhoNeither of those worked. The site is relatively new; perhaps they will introduce more character recognition and such at some point.


No. It wasn't offered at my high school.

Yes.

No but, mysteriously passed the GED when I was 17 anyways.


bostjan the adequate 🥉
Not surprising at all, since there is no calculus on the GED mathematics test.
