Question by irlnnl: Sciences that require little math?
I am currently an engineer major but i hate it so much. The mathematics is just too difficult for me, and even the non math classes have math (i.e. physics, fluid mechanics).

What type of science majors require little math, as in no further or not much further than calc?

Answer by eri
Physics is applied math. You’re not going to get away from math in physics, astronomy, or geology (past the intro level, anyway). Biology is probably your best bet for a science that doesn’t expect much math; chem requires a bit more but not past calculus (if even calculus).

Question by DrinkMilkLoveLife: What kind of math should be expected in a Biology University program?
I’m planning to go to university two years from now to study biology. I’m very good at the sciences (biology, chemistry, and physics), however I am weak at math. If I were to go into a biology program at university, how hard would the math courses be? Assuming I’m taking a biology course that has little to no focus on math, zoology, biodiversity, genetics, ect.

First off, if you are very proficient with chemistry and physics, then you will soon realize that you must be proficient with mathematics as it is the underlying basis for chemical reactions and most physical laws that were constructed (i.e. Newton w/ calculus and physics eqns). Biology actually has a lot of math as its basis, once you get past your introductory courses, you will see that you encounter advanced mathematics in courses such as ecology (eigenvectors are calculated here). Also most universities have pre-requisites of Calculus I and II, so you will have to become very comfortable with dealing with math. So to answer your question plainly, the math classes will not be all that tough, just make sure you have a strong platform to build off of from trigonometry and precalculus, with that platform calculus should follow pretty easily.

Question by simple: Do you think Physics or Math is more difficult?
Not “for you” (i know you are all smart out there :) but in general, apples to apples – which is the more difficult science? I think physics is hands down – you really have to be smart to do physics.

Answer by US Girl
phisics is definitly more difficult
couse one suppose to know math to undertand phisics and for math U don;t need phisiscs
so phisics is like double

Question by CowBlow: If one is not ‘good’ in math, would it still be wise to get a PHd in Science or make it a hobby?
Should I make Science biology, chemistry, astronomy, earth science and physics by reading every book and doing things on my own or go get PHd ..

Answer by eri
That really depends on what you plan to do with it. Bio and chem don’t require a lot of math for most fields (up through calculus only) but astronomy, physics, and geology require much higher level math (equivalent of a math major in most fields of those subjects). If you want a job doing scientific research and/or teaching college, you’ll need a PhD in the field. If you want a job that doesn’t require a degree but you want to read science books for fun, that might be a better way to go. Without a strong math background, you won’t be reading textbooks, but you can read the popular non-fiction.

Question by ocean flyer: What is it easier for me to get a job in, Mechanical Engineering or Computer Science? (Applied Math student)?
I am an Applied Math student. I like computer science and mechanical engineering equally. I need to know what is easier for me to get a job in. My goal is to work at a company using math to solve problems and do research involved with hard science (biology, chemistry, physics, etc.). Thank you.
I am good at programming.

Question by nickkelly4dogs: What types of math and science (etc) should I take to become a veterinarian?
I’m in high school right now. I think the vet sciences mainly include biology, chemistry and physics? If more or less, could someone please tell me? I would also like to know what kinds of math are involved in both college and high school that relate to vets. If there are any more classes that I should be taking now in high school or will be taking later in the 4 years of college, please let me know or send me a web link. Thanks!

Answer by Preston
Biology and chemistry in high school and college for sure. Then more specialty classes later in college.

And for math, probably nothing more than pre-calc.

Question by sear_squid: If a student goes to a community college, will they need to take science and math courses?
I am terrible at science. If I take physics and pre calc next year (senior year) will I have to take them at the community college (where I plan to go)? Thanks.

Answer by Mrs. LT
You should talk to that particular council @ college, because you will have to take a test with math, english where it will place you were you need to be. depending on your major you may have to, but depending on your school they may pass it as prerequisite.
