Popular McMaster Electives

A photo of Schen Schen
What are some popular McMaster electives for first years?

I have 9 units to choose from. So far I'm considering psychology 1X03 and Calculus for Life Sciences 1LS3. I'm still debating my last (one term) elective. Any other suggestions?

I took PSYCH 1X03, MATH 1LS3 and PHYSICS 1L03 as my 1st year electives. PHYSICS 1B03/1BB3, MATH 1A03/1AA3, ECON 1B03/1BB3 and SOCIOLOGY 1A06 are also very popular.

I'm just curious, why did you choose Physics 1L03 over Physics 1B03? Did you take 12U physics?

Thanks a lot,

Schen

Between Math 1A03 and 1SL3, which one is harder? I've registered for Math 1A03.

Math 1LS3 is relatively easier compared to 1A03. 1LS3 is pretty much a review of grade 12 Calculus with an few additions of concepts like integration and cowebbing.

I never took grade 12 physics, just grade 11 in summer school.
