I'm taking another math class - Vectors and Matrices - this semester. It's not required in my program but I'd like to take the follow up, class Linear Algebra, next semester. These classes have me more genuinely excited than any of the courses for my major lol.


@Elmkast Great for you! I very much enjoyed Linear Algebra and will very readily chalk it down as a major influence in pushing me towards more CS-related interests.

Also you're kinda gonna need it if you want to understand things like transforms for image/audio compression, the latter of which probably aren't that useful for urban planning, but transforms are one of those mind-bending concepts you can't unlearn which change the way you think about technical things.
