Is there really going to be a calculus group? How was that decided? Why wouldn't there be a Linear Algebra group?

    why not request a number theory group @estudier ...........

    It was decided since calculus is a much more advanced part of mathematics. However, calculus in itself will be a subset of mathematics.

    Much more advanced than what? It's just a bunch of formulas and computation (leaving aside real analysis).

    If you want to divide up the university curriculum, then Calculus and Linear Algebra have equal weight.

    Then again, dividing by subject matter might be a mistake. Why not divide by beginner, intermediate and advanced (or any such gradation)?

    i think Discrete Mathematics is just as important as Linear Algebra....it's all about wits after all....

    Indeed it is however this tends to be presented more and more by computing/CS departments. Anyway, it is another reason not to divide by subject.

    We can't divide up every form of mathematics. We'll end up with a million different subjects. They'll be more segregation of groups since black and white people on a 1900's bus.

    I heard that, we *are* going to have little groups and parent groups too.

    Pardon me, what I meant was 'child groups'.

    Well We Have A Mathematics Group Which Counts For All Subs Including Calculus And Linear Algebra.So Do We Really Need To Make So Many Portions ?

    Oh, so it's a subgroup, not a separate group? I still not too sure about subbing by subject....
