What was (or is currently) the highest level of mathematics education that you attained?
Pretty slim pickins for 'highest attained'.
I would normally construe that to indicate degree earned, but you only list a bunch of lower level classes (usually required classes) or a Graduate class?
Pretty big leap of faith from lower level courses (junior college level) to graduate level courses.
What are you really trying to ask?
I had the same concern. I voted "Calculus III or Differential Equations" even though I had to take higher level math classes than that to get my Bachelor of Arts degree in mathematics.
I had to take a course in Abstract Algebra which was higher level. I also had to take a course in mathematical logic of the same level as Calculus III, but which required higher-ordered thinking.
With "Mathematical Analysis" is it meant what was called that in the high schools and the last course before high school calculus, or is it meant "Real Analysis" and/or "Complex Analysis" in high-level undergraduate courses and graduate math courses?
Statistics such as Pearson's R for Educational Research for my Masters Degree.
As if I didn't already know it, there are folks here who are obviously much smarter than me. I got a BA undergraduate degree rather than a BS simply to avoid the math courses.
I had way too much math throughout my college life -- engineering calc courses! Did anyone take set theory -- where you get to prove that one type of infinity is greater than another type of infinity??? What is that theory?
While I don't use any of it now (thankfully) - at least directly, it was a great learning experience and it helped develop a logical, methodical way of problem-solving.
I wouldn't trade the experience for the world, but wouldn't do it again either.
Set theory was fun.
I still do not like the questions. Graduate level statistics is not usually a mathematical course.
Are you looking at degrees? Or courses?
I had 2 of those classes in High School . . .
College algebra was it for me...and mathematics was part of the reason i chose to be a history major!
Ha! I went the other route to avoid the foreign language courses
You're from the South, sis.
You can't avoid a foreign language! :tongue3:
Mathematical Analysis (Well, more like applications of Differintial Equations), but that was in 1975. :love2:
In 1975 I got a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Electrical Engineering(EE).
Next week I retire from my Electronic Engineering Vocation.
-Ed Edwards, BSEE
Ed - have newfound respect for you. EE was one of the toughest majors!! Where did you go to school??
I took two years of Algebra; Elementry and regular.
I got as far as 1 + 1 =
........maybe one day I'll look up the answer....... :smilewinkgrin:
University of Oklahoma(OU)
I, Ed Edwards also have a BSEd (Bachelor of Science in Education), 1969.
-Ed Edwards, BSEd, BSEE
that'll be me... i couldn't vote coz i can't exactly remember what maths i'm supposed to know... :laugh: :laugh:
Then God went and gave me a Mechnical Engineer for a husband...:laugh: Opposites attract?
I got a BSEE in 2000 from University Missouri Rolla.
One of the requirements for graduation was taking the Engineering In Training / Fundamentals of Engineering test.
I was talking with a friend about the test and said I wasn't too woried because the Math and EE section shouldn't have too many surprises. She said "You don't get to count math!" Then I listed all the uses of Diff EQ and Matrix Algebra etc that we did in EE and she conceded
I took all my engineering calc courses at Georgia Institute of Technology. I like one of them so much, I took it twice:laugh: .
