MTH1030 or MTH1035

Hey hey, I'm wondering if there's any real advantage to doing MTH1035 over MTH1030. I know that MTH1035 is the 'advanced' version and covers more proofs, but you still do the same assignments and exams so wouldn't it be better to do the regular MTH1030 as it may be marginal easier?

Thanks :D

Yeah, objectively speaking MTH1030 should yield you a better score than MTH1035 given they will get a bunch of proofs on the exam. Although, I know a few people who did 1035 and loved that aspect of the course. I was doing it as an elective and wanted to focus on my course units so just went the 1030 route.

However, I remember when I was doing the unit Burkard said that they try to make sure that people doing MTH1035 aren't disadvantaged. I wasn't doing 1035 so didn't really try to work out exactly what he meant.(so maybe some scaling - I would clarify this before you can a decision though).

You should be able to participate in the 1035 workshops and see if it is for you or not. If you don't like it you should be able to drop down to 1030. I would confirm this with Burkard.

Hope this helps.
