I should come in here more often.
Multivariable calculus in junior year does that to me.
It's fucking retarded that college board doesn't count it as a recognized college class.

Ah okay. Most of the kids that I know who finish AP Calc BC before they're a senior take differential equations. The reason the college board doesn't offer another AP test is because there would not be nearly enough students taking that level of math for it to be worth it. Last year over 230,000 students took the AB exam, but only 72,000 students took the BC exam. So what, maybe 10,000 students may be taking the next level math the following year if they're in high school. It doesn't make sense for College Board to create a new test just for that small percentage of students. Colleges will still be very impressed by the level of math you've taken and you can always just do credit-by-exam in college.

BC isn't multivariable, it's just more topics in single-variable.

Oh I wasn't aware of that. The class is called Calculus C/Multivariate Calculus at my school and that's the year we take the BC test. My teacher told us that next year (I'm in AB currently) we do multivariable.

Yea. We have a class that's Multivariable first sem, differential equations 2nd semester.

all you need to know is that everything is a set and sets have other things (sets) in them.

the rest of math is just details.

That sounds pretty cool, wish my high school offered that (the most advanced we had was AP calculus AB). If there aren't any more math classes offered at your school after you finish DE's you should take a beginning linear algebra course at a local college. You'd probably like it, it's different than calculus but it's right about the same level as DE's in terms of rigor.

Yeah, that's all there is.
I'm not sure what I'm going to do senior year, at our school we have this "young scholars" program which is a partnership with UMD, and I'm going to take a social psychology class second semester. I'll also probably take AP physics, and I need a tech and english class, plus band, so I don't know what else I'm going to do.

Give an example of a set S such that:

1. S C P (N) and |S| = 5
2. S E P (N) and |S| = 5

Note:
Cardinality = |S| = 5
P (N) = The Power Set of Natural Numbers.
