Looking at the way the classes are structured, apparently most of these
classes have a single, identical pre-requisite. Maybe I should bump one of
my fall classes back to spring so that I can take the pre-req in the fall,
and take a few of those before I graduate. Hm...

I've done one or two. I remember getting stuck on a problem involving prime
numbers, due to not generating them efficiently enough to have it run in any
reasonable amount of time. Maybe I'll dust that off and ask for help here.
