1. ## Your Favorite Math Course

What is your favorite math course? Why is it your favorite? Calculus 1 and 2 are my favorite courses with precalculus coming in third place.

2. ## Re: Your Favorite Math Course

Topology, Combinatorics, biomaths...

3. ## Re: Your Favorite Math Course

Wow! Topology. I'm impressed.

4. ## Re: Your Favorite Math Course

I have little idea of what topology is about (just a faint idea), but I've heard of some of its interesting applications. Like you can figure out where you can use logic and where it's inapplicable. Has to do with topological spaces, I think.

Is it true?

5. ## Re: Your Favorite Math Course

I know nothing about topology. A lot of theories for sure....

6. ## Re: Your Favorite Math Course

Topology is very far generalization of geometry

7. ## Re: Your Favorite Math Course

calc 2 i think. because i was able to ace it in only 6 weeks

No, its not. The is NO problem in which logic is inapplicable. "Topology" is essentially the study of "continuity".

The guy was a bit crazy and not very trustworthy, honestly, so I wasn't sure it was all true. Actually it was something along the lines of: you can't use logic if you consider elements from different topological spaces, whatever it means. So can't draw elements from one topological space to another.

Are there uses of topology that I can understand now or you have to be more advanced?

Go to youtube.com and search for Algebraic Topology by Australian math professor NJ Wildberger.
