Summary: I like quantum mechanics and how it relates to chemistry and of course, physics, but pure math also captivates me. I’m having trouble deciding between three majors. The majors are math, physics, and chemistry. For some background, I am a rising freshman in high school. I have experience with all three subject areas. I’ve been interested in chemistry since third grade. I started memorizing the order of the elements and eventually finished. I tore through books and bored my family. I am currently self-studying physical chemistry, and I’m really enjoying. I’m currently focusing on quantum chemistry. It was the branch of chemistry that really stuck out to me. Other areas aren’t as interesting to me. I’m also currently self-studying higher level math just so I can understand physical chemistry better. Now, for physics, I’m really only interested in quantum mechanics, acoustics, low and ultra-low temperature, and maybe the chemical part. Classical mechanics doesn’t really interest me. I’ve attended a physics camp and toured the labs. I fell in love with the low temperature lab. I will come back to the camp as a mentor in future. In fifth grade, I loved particle accelerators. We had an independent project, and that’s what I made my video on. Now for math, I love math. It’s my favorite subject. As previously mentioned, I’m thoroughly enjoying self-studying math. I enjoying teaching others what I learn as well. I want to learn all of the math in world. I get visibly excited when a math topic I like is discussed. Pure math interests me the most. I’m not opposed to double majoring or having minors. I’m planning on going to grad school. For careers, I’d like to become a researcher or work in academia, but I really can’t decide what field. Is there a major that combines the three fields?

## How can I manage stress during times of failure and stagnant progress?

I'm an 18 year old college sophomore majoring in animal science, and I've been really struggling in math based subjects since high school. It seems no matter how hard I study or spend time with my tutors, I barely see any progress and it causes me loads of stress that affects my relationship with my family/friends and a bit of an issue with my other grades, since I'm so focused on improving in mathematics. I want to do better and be better overall.

## What would be a good plan for someone wanting to become an acoustic/noise control engineer?

I was planning on getting two degrees: one in math and the second in physics. Then I want to get a masters and doctorate in acoustics from Penn State. I then started researching the Institue of Noise Control Engineering. Would it be a good idea to apply for membership to INCE after graduate school? Should I do it earlier? Should I wait? Should I do it at all? Then I want to complete all three INCE courses in noise control engineering. Is board certification worth it?
