# Soft Question: Taking Multivariable Calculus vs. Introduction to Proofs Class [closed]

Would taking multivariable calculus be boring in comparison to an introduction to proofs class for someone good at Calc. I and II? The multivariable calculus class would not cover topics like Green's Theorem, Stoke's Theorem, Divergence, Curl but rather only double and triple integrals, the del operator, gradient, and directional derivatives. Would it be more interesting intellectually for someone to take the introduction to proofs class which would cover set theory,cardinalities, basic graph theory, formal logic, axiom systems, relations and related things?

I'm thinking that because the multivaribale class doesn't even cover green's theorem and stoke's theorem it would be too easy and a waste of time to take.

• I would say it depends on what your interests are and how far you want to go with math. If you plan on doing more mathematics, I would go with the second option, as it gives a better preparation. – B. Pasternak May 6 '16 at 17:07
• What is your goal, pure math, applied math, physics, engineering? If you see your self as a pure math person, then introduction to proofs is probably the way way to go. If you lean toward physics / engineering I would say skip introduction to proofs all together. If you are applied math then you should think about taking both. – Doug M May 6 '16 at 17:12
