Trying to decide math class...

Dear all,

I just finished a Chemistry 2 class, and it included exponential rates and decay, simple quadratic formula solving, and chemical rate laws. It used some integrals, and I am trying to find a math class to help. I barely got a B, and want to understand it better cuz I am about to take Biochem and Organic chemistry. I am signed up for Trig and realized it probably won't help me as much. What math classes would help me the most with organic and Biochem? Any suggestions? Thanks, - chocolatepi

I can't give you any informed advice about what math is needed for a chemist.

It sounds as though you are a bit shaky in college algebra. If that is correct, you need to fix that if you are planning on studying physical sciences.

After that, I'd advise anyone who wants to work with quantitative data to study differential and integral calculus and basic statistics. I found some of my course in numerical methods useful, but it probably would have been much more useful to have studied linear algebra. Also I suspect that I would have been better advised to study differential equations than abstract algebra.
