I decided to major in math because of all those cool mind blowing videos about math on youtube and because I thought I was pretty good at it, but a month and a half in, it just feels so repetitive. Implicit differentiation is literally just a bunch of algebra and linear algebra is just doing a bunch of arithmetic with matrices (even though that can be fun sometimes). The only course I really enjoy is my “intro to real anaylsis” which is a course that’s designed to make your life much easier when you get to real anaylsis in second or third year, and I like that course because it actually explains a lot of concepts of math that I didn’t really understand before.
I looked through the courses I would take throughout my undergrad and found out that the cool math courses don’t start until around third year, so right now I feel like I’m just gonna be bored until then. Did anyone else feel this way in their first couple years?
