    What is the highest level of math you took while in high school, college or Graduate school?

    Also did you dread or enjoy taking math?

    Multivariable calculus. I hated it.

    Technically physical quantum chemistry because it contained some higher order math then just multivariable. I also hated it.

    I just hate math...

    Lie algebras, non-standard analysis, and functional analysis/spectral theory.

    Calculus...I hated every minute of it....even though I got a 98 in it icon_confused.gif I probably couldn't tell you the last thing I learned haha

    I love math - there is no more beautiful subject, period. It is perfect.

    When I was a math major in college, I would wake up, and if I saw a math text open, I would only come out of it after my roommates had arrived home that evening. It is a privilege to learn math, and the closest thing I know to what people would describe as a religious experience.

    The highest math I ever took were a couple graduate courses at UC Berkeley's math department in abstract algebra and topology. I ultimately wanted to take algebraic geometry, but didn't have enough time.

    I guess my career has taken the form of studying ways to use math to order human interaction - I worked in finance, and am currently implementing a statistical process control system as well as a project management system derived from network theory/systems analysis.

    I took a few levels of calculus. I hated it and never studied. I have to take even higher levels of math, and I don't remember any of what I learned before. It's such a bore and a waste of my time. Math = yuck.

    Be careful you don't let a mathematician hear you call a physics course math!

    Toss up between Calc 3 and Diff EQ for me! I suppose Diff EQ was a bit harder if only in I felt like I had to do a lot more memorization. My personality is not to sit and memorize from a text. I am a man of action, a doer. So that made it difficult for me. At least in Calc 3, which does require memorization too, I felt more engaged when trying to figure out integrations.

    Hehe, thanks!... I forgot to mention that I loved every single second of it. I had great math teachers in elementary school, and I credit them with helping me see the extraordinary beauty of math.

    A Calculus class in college, I forget what exactly it was called. Loved it <3 Math is so easy.

    I'm in Cal I at the moment. I may not be the biggest fan but I do have to admit when I solve a problem all by myself it's one of the best feelings ever!

    Graduate level Partial Differential Equations. After a certain point there is no "highest level" just what you choose to study. I have a love hate relationship with math.

    Algebra to Trigonometry, I skipped Geometry, took Calculus in HS ! hated it got a C-, I stopped taking math in colleges and just focused on Arts classes.

    Fucking differential equations and linear algebra. Linear algebra is so inconspicuous. All it sounds like is all you did when you first started algebra and line graphs...until you add in a vector traveling along 15 FUCKING DIMENSIONS!

    So in other words, it's a mathematical nyan cat?

    I count myself as one who is a huge fan of math. I took the gamut of calculus courses, and then had some more advanced courses in chaos theory and applied mathematics (which included partial differential equations). Once I was into my Physics PhD coursework, there were different aspects that we learned in those classes as needed, such as group theory, complex analysis, and tensor calculus. I have a very abstract/theoretical mind, and really enjoyed learning the math and being able to apply it to physics/astrophysics concepts.
