Here are the top 10 hardest classes at UConn. Take at your own risk, you’ve been warned!

**1. ****CHEM 2241: Organic Chemistry**

*Chemistry…Chem..istry…try…try another class*

**2. PHYS 1602Q: Fundamentals of Physics II**

*“What is the velocity of my feet walking out of this class?” *

This class combines both Calculus and Science, with three class periods, and one three hour lab period.

Topics: fundamental principles of electromagnetism, optics, and wave propagation.

**3. PNB 4400: Biology of Nervous System Diseases**

Your mind just might be literally blown.

Genetics + MCB + Physiology = major headache

Topics: principles of genetics, molecular and cell biology, and physiology applied to the mechanisms of disease and repair processes in the nervous system.

**4. MATH 2710: Transition to Advanced Mathematics **

*“Don’t ask me to solve a function at 8am when I’m not even functioning yet.” *

### If you’re coming from practical math into theoretical math, you’ve got alot in store for you.

Topics: logic, set theory, counting principles, mathematical induction, relations, functions, and abstract algebra and analysis.

**5. MATH 2110Q: Multivariable Calculus**

This math class requires some serious preparation from Calculus II before enrolling.

Topics: two- and three-dimensional vector algebra, calculus of functions of several variables, vector differential calculus, line and surface integrals.

**6. MCB 2000: Introduction to Biochemistry**

Biochem is generally required for: agriculture, general biology, medical technology, nursing, and pharmacy students.

Topics: the structure, chemistry, and metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids and proteins. Enzyme function and kinetics, energy metabolism, and structure and function of nucleic acids.

## 7. **MCB 2210: Cell Biology**

*Tissues aren’t included, except in cells. *

### Topics: protein targeting, vesicle trafficking, cytoskeleton, cell-cell interactions in tissues, and the molecular basis of related human diseases.

**8. MCB 3010: Biochemistry**

Prepare yourself for four class periods and one 3-hour laboratory, not for the faint of heart.

Topics: biological macromolecules, metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids, amino acids, proteins and nucleic acids, regulation of metabolism, and biosynthesis of biological macromolecules.

**9. MATH 2143Q-2144Q: Advanced Calculus III, IV**

This advanced class is taken in sequence over two semesters.

Topics: vector spaces and their application to multivariable calculus and first-order, second-order and systems of differential equations.

**10. MATH 2211Q: Quantitative Intermediate Microeconomics**

“Can I *exchange *this class for another?”

Topics: Intermediate microeconomic theory presented with calculus and other quantitative techniques. Demand and supply, exchange and production, pricing, and welfare economics.
