Recommendations (courses)
I don't know where this is needed to be posted (the thread),
But it may be removed to another subforum with my permission. Next year (in a few month) I'm going to start my B.A. I'm interested which intro. courses may be the best to start with. Thanks Tomer.

Noone can answer this question without knowing what you intend to study! What University are you intending? Surely you will have an advisor who knows the curriculum better than anyone here.

I participated in a preparatory program this year (for secondary school students who interested in learning university materials) in TAU (TelAviv University). for none missunderstanding: I still learn in secondary school, So I may not finish the B.A on the next three years. But I wish to finish the First year or some more. Don't you know what I intend to study, I told you that I want to learn pure mathematics The question isn't about which path to take, I was talking about which courses are the best to be taken in my situation. Thanks Tomer.

Here's a list of areas of mathematics: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Areas_of_mathematics Which ones interest you more than others? (Here's a different classification of mathematics subjects, but it was developed for the specific purpose of classifying mathematical papers submitted to journals, though it's also the starting point for the first list: http://msc2010.org/mscwiki/index.php?title=MSC2010 ) Quote:
You can take introductory courses in a variety of areas, but unless you want to be a professional classifier of mathematical areas you'll need to focus on specific areas for advanced courses. Getting from where you are to the frontier of some area will take time. (If you're creative enough to invent a new area ... then our recommendations might not be any help to you.) Help us to help you, by telling us which areas or subjects within mathematics most interest you. Last fiddled with by cheesehead on 20100613 at 04:21

Number Theory. Algebraic Number theory. Topology. Mathematical Logic/Proof theory. I'm interested in Brent and Shanks' work (mostly conjectures) in number theory which isn't the classical number theory (functions, infinitesimal arithmetic, etc.). Calculus (It isn't an area I in'love with, I think it is just an area must be mastered for every mathematician). Group theory (Credit to Silverman who showed me how special this area is). Group theory with appliciations into number theory. Analysis as Calculus must be taught too. Numerical Analysis. I may devide these into three categories: 1) Number theory and it's applications. 2) must be taught. 3) Topology and mathematical logic (remainders). Thanks.

Is there an online course listing we can look at?
