Taking AP Physics before Chemistry and Biology?
Our HS offers the standard biology->chemistry->physics track and prerequistes in that order as well. AP Physics is for B. (Additional contents will be handed out if one wants to take C exam). DS finished pre-calc last year and will become a freshman next year. I am trying to ask the school if they will let him do AP Physics -> (honors or AP) biology and honors chemistry->AP Chem, so that he does not have to wait several years to apply the math to physics. By reading the contents in the course description, it appears doable to me. Is this take viable/reasonable? I don't want to present some unreasonable option in my discussion with the school.
Also, he is not interested in doing research in biological or medical field. He likes the topic in AP Biology, but neither he nor I want him to take an AP class for the sake of having AP showing up on his transcript. The teacher does encourage him taking AP Biology, because it will be a more engaging peer group, even compared to the student body taking honors class. What will be your take?
TIA for any advice.
