Question by §Guru Pathik§: What year in college can I take theoretical physics, and how often will I see these words?
Einstein’s outlook on “Reality”
“The Measurement Problem”
We are all one
Life greatest illusion-separation and self
Sacred Geometry
Da Vinci
Astral Projection
“Junk DNA”
9 dimensions
11 dimensions

ODU, is where I’m going , And I’m 17, if that’s relevant.

BQ: If I take theology, ( if you can’t tell I like learning about this stuff) will it be like the Religion and Spirituality( constant calling out and arguing), more than likely a theology professor would be an atheist right? ( I’d prefer to get a professor like Alan Watts ) Would he call me out if he found out I wasn’t atheist? I’m not a fundamental theist , but would I be stuck in a room full of atheists? I have atheist friends , but I’d hate to have to be silent just to avoid arguing.

Or opposite, would I get a religious teacher who would call me out for not being a fundamental theist?

BQ 2 : Which Could I take further ?
A: Major: Engineering, Minor: Theoretical physics
B: Major: Theoretical physics Minor: Engineering

BQ 3: Based of the list of words , what classes should I take?

BQ 4: As I said I’m 17, I was very passive in primary and secondary schools ( I’m really smart when I want to be, but if its something I’m not interested in, I’m lazy , and my grades will show) Going through the motions of my high school years I have cumulative 3.4 GPA, but If I didn’t study it or were apathetic about it in high school, would I be a complete noob in theoretical physics and quatum physics?.

When I was younger I had no interest in most school subjects whatsoever , but now I do.
Ok, thanks I probably was confused by some words of Michio Kaku pertaining to theoretical physics and Spinoza.

Answer by Cyle Monroe
If choosing to go with either a major in Engineering or TP, I would suggest you take Engineering. The marketability and demand of just about any engineering degree is already known to be higher than average, where as TP is a bit more obscure as it is based around theory.

Once you are in college, you can no longer have the mindset of “well this is boring!” and tune out like you can in most of high school. If you are taking on a degree in any engineering, which is widely known to be very math-intense and demanding of your attention, you will need to be “interested” or you WILL fall behind. And as a previous engineering student I can assure you, you will have lecture upon lecture about subjects which will NOT peak any of your interests unless you are oddly passionate about calculus limits, derivatives, or the diameter of a sewage pipe.
I have no idea about your questions about that list of what I assume to be your interests.
Good luck in school.

Question by Nick: Should i take physics Hon or an Ap science class next year?
Hi everyone, thanks to my school being so organize and great at time management, i got my course selection sheet today, and they are due this following Monday ( yay). Well here’s some background- i’m going to be a senior and I go to an environmental science magnet which makes us take 6+ science credits- a the moment the science classes i’ve taken are Biology, Chemistry, Ap environmental science, and Marine science ( all hon except environmental science), and next year my magnet is forcing me to take another two science courses ( which i have no problems with, i enjoy science).

Now I’m wondering, should i take AP bio/chem, or should i take Physics Honors? Will not taking physics affect my transcript in any way? or will it be better if i take an Ap science course? I’ll aprreciate any answer

Best answer:

Answer by The Missy
Take AP bio. Ap classes are better because they look great on college apps. Its also a fun class. And taking this class shouldn’t affect your transcript because it falls under the same science category as physics, but whats best is that it’s AP. Hope this helps.

Question by Karl Riedel: Should I take physics next year?
I’m a Junior in highschool at the moment, on the last week of school this year. I took chemistry this year and I hated it. I absolutely loathed it. It has a lot to do with my awful teacher this year, and because of this I (and a lot of my other classmates) felt a bit left behind about the whole subject.

I signed up for physics, one of the two tougher science classes for Senior year. My question is this, if I had such a bad time and felt a bit left behind in chemistry, will physics be impossible to grasp or learn?

Will I need to teach myself chemistry over the summer or hire a tutor or what? Thanks.

Answer by Scott
First of all chemistry is not physics so you really won’t have to know the actual science part of chemistry to grasp physics. What you will have to know for physics that you were supposed to learn from chem are things like converting different measurements and manipulating equations (basic algebra). Besides that I’d say you learn completely different stuff in physics. So I wouldn’t worry about learning the chemistry material over summer. If you have trouble dealing with moles then i would just read about more of what a mole is, but you probably wouldn’t be applying anything with moles since you are taking your first physics course. (I had to deal with converting stuff to moles when I got to my first engineering physics course in college which was a semester after taking college chemistry)
Sorry if any of this was confusing… basically don’t worry about chem for now, physics is nothing like it.

Question by vemberajil: Could it Be possible to make a Bachelor science degree of physic the freschman year ?
I would like to skip all my undegraduate intermediate grade and to make a Bsc Physic at my Freschman year How could I ?
I just also need and example of someone who also already made it or how to make it
Please SOS !

Best answer:

Answer by Philip J
Doogie Howser; but that was premed. In physics, it should be a snap for someone of that caliber. If you sailed thru high school in one semester, a BS in one years shouldn’t be impossible. The key is to know it all from independent study before your enroll.

Not much you can do to prepare. Just study, stay organized and communicate with your professor if you need extra help. Also take advantage of the resources you have on campus
