    Do you agree with this short video clip or not?



    If you don't agree, what is the hardest math course at the undergraduate level for a student majoring in mathematics?

    Advanced Calculus (AKA Undergraduate Mathematical Analysis) is absolutely the HARDEST undergraduate math class a math major must take.

    In my opinion, Math 55 ("Honors Advanced Calculus and Linear Algebra,") is the hardest, a two-semester long first-year undergraduate mathematics course. The official titles of the course are Honors Abstract Algebra (Math 55a) and Honors Real and Complex Analysis (Math 55b).

    I took both Advanced Calculus and Linear Algebra. To get a sense of the kind of brains it takes to get through Math 55, consider that Bill Gates himself was a student in the course. (He passed.)

    Are you saying that Math 55 is harder than Calculus 3? Do you know how to solve Math 55 problems today?

    Just for fun, post a Math 55 problem here.
