Alas, classes and school and learning!
I thought I’d try to lay out my learning for the next 3.5 years.
Semester I: (Right now)
Computer Science 15 (Intro to Java)
Econ 11 (Econ is fun for everyone!)
Computing in Brains and Computers
Math 18 (Calc III for feeble folk)
Computer Science 16 (More Java)
I actually don’t need this course at all, but none of the other courses that I need to take are offered in the spring.
Econ 1130 (Microeconomics, with numbers!)
APMA 1650 (Probability: Please, please, please offer it!)
Econometrics is one of my required courses, and it either requires APMA1650 as a prerequisite, or Math1620, which has its own prerequisite child. I’d rather take it in one semester in a more hardcore-looking department, thanks.
Update: It’s offered! Yayyyyyyyyyyy. Me gusta la probabilidad. Es muy interesante, y espero que sea tanto facil como AP Stat.
Math 54 (Linear Algebra for the not-as-feeble.)
APMA 35 (Elephants, interest, half-lives, oh boy!)
Econ 1210 (Intermediate Macro. After this, I can take interesting courses!)
APMA 1660: More statistics?
APMA 36 (More elephants. Maybe even snails.)
[And thence I give up, because then I can take all the interesting-sounding classes (and know more about what they mean and their relevance to what I want to do). I’ll probably also start picking classes by professor, too.]
Big list of electives:
1. Intro to Hebrew
2. Intro to Czech [I have terrible, horrible reasons for wanting to take this and (1).]
3. Intro to Sanskrit
4. Oh yeah…Chinese for weenies.
5. Musical Theater: Songwriting! (imagine the songs I’d write. You betcha that there will be chem jokes and a passage in latin. Maybe even a passacaglia if I can manage it.)
6. Intro to Linguistics (and if I take more programming classes, I can take Computational Linguistics. teehee.)
7. APMA 1200 – Operations Research: Probabilistic Models. This is really interesting to me because my mother has tried to qualitatively teach this to me for years. I assume that when I take this course, I will be able to load the dishwasher and pack suitcases as well as she does. I might even be able to fit things in the refrigerator.
8. Persuasive Communication (TSDA0220): You can’t sign up for this course. You have to persuade the instructor. (j/k)
