Salvete omnes! (Latin for Hello all!) New here. And as the title of this thread implies, which math course is easier: MATH 1414- College Algebra MATH 1332- Contemporary Mathematics MATH 1324- Mathematics for Business and Social Sciences Does each math course get harder as the course number goes higher? So does that mean that College Algebra is the hardest on this list and Math for B & SS is the easiest (what a genius am I for asking that if that turns out to be true). A little background on myself: I am a returning student and want to study Economics. MATH 1324 is the math course that I need for my major but I just wanted to know what math course is harder out of curiosity. I am not a math person but a language person (as the greeting at the top of this post implies), but I want to make good money after graduation and what job could I get with a Classics degree other than as a Latin teacher at some private Catholic school (not that there’s anything wrong with that, it’s just not what I’m looking forward to doing for the rest of my life). So instead I choose to study Economics at school and I teach myself Latin and Ancient Greek (haven’t started Greek yet though; I’m yet to finish Latin). As for my plans for the future: My dream is to go to Rice University. But my gpa is abysmal (really low in case you don’t understand that). So I’ll have to take two semesters, the first at the local college, then the second at the local university, to increase my gpa before I can even think of fulfilling that dream. Does anyone think that I have a chance at fulfilling this dream? I want your genuine honesty. Be harsh if you have to. But please, just tell me the truth on my chances of being able to get into Rice University. Thank you.
