## What is the hardest math class?

Math 55

“Math 55” has gained a reputation as the toughest undergraduate math class at Harvard—and by that assessment, maybe in the world. The course is one many students dread, while some sign up out of pure curiosity, to see what all the fuss is about.

## What is finite math in college?

FINITE MATHEMATICS: Finite Mathematics is an umbrella of mathematical topics. It is a course designed for students who will undertake higher-level mathematics in college that may not include calculus. Finite Math is made up of five strands: Sets, Matrices, Networks, Optimization, and Probability.

**What is the highest level of math in the world?**

There is no highest level of mathematics, and there couldn’t be. Mathematics is not linear, plodding forward, instead it’s like a wave, spreading outward from foundations.

### How hard is linear algebra?

The pure mechanics of Linear algebra are very basic, being far easier than anything of substance in Calculus. The difficulty is that linear algebra is mostly about understanding terms and definitions and determining the type of calculation and analysis needed to get the required result.

### What’s easier finite math or statistics?

If you are looking for an easier load, take finite math. If you are looking at a more interesting, but more difficult, and as pointed out, more useful class, take stats.

**Is Statistics harder than math?**

Statistics stands out as being the more difficult type of math mostly because of the abstract concepts and ideas that you will get to later on in your study. You will find that when you start to actually try and understand what is going on in a statistics equation or problem, the concepts are very complicated.

## Is calculus needed for linear algebra?

You do not really need any calculus to begin studying linear algebra. You do need to understand functions and high-school level algebra to start learning linear algebra.

## How useful is linear algebra?

In simpler words, linear algebra helps you understand geometric concepts such as planes, in higher dimensions, and perform mathematical operations on them. It can be thought of as an extension of algebra into an arbitrary number of dimensions. Rather than working with scalars, it works with matrices and vectors.
