# Hardest Math Course Taken

What is the hardest math course you have ever taken? What made it hard?

I'd say Calc II, III, and Diff Eq. were equally hard!

Why? A lot of hard procedure to learn.

I never went formally beyond Precalculus. Precalculus was an elective not a required course for me as a sociology major at Lehman College.

Pre-Calculus, Calculus I are difficult, but the others are worse. Also, another very difficult course would be Probs and Stats (Calculus Based) because of the challenge problems.

I was told that abstract algebra aka modern algebra is insanely hard. According to most math majors at Lehman College, algebraic topology is the course that separates adults from kids.

I was shocked I could do so many math problems on the board in DE, even though I had prerequisites for the class!

DE is a course I surely want to learn after Calculus 3.

While studying Electronics we had one compulsory subject named "Signals & Systems". It had a lot of weird maths like tripple integration, fourier transform specific to the signal and the systems in electronics. So it was kind of too hard for me but I survived that.

Speed is a massive problem with math. That's why people with faster brains have an advantage - kind of like how a tall person does in basketball. However, I think some people with disadvantages can over come the problem.

Anyway, any subject that requires more speed to finish - would be tougher, even if at a base level, you know - how to do it (opinion).
