I'm a frosh taking trigonometry for math in school. Next year I'll be doing AP Calc BC. What math classes are usually taken after this?

But, I do work as a counselor's aide, so I know this sort of stuff.

97Registered User Junior Member2,399Registered User Senior Memberanother route would be, after calculus you can take AP Statistics

170Registered User Junior Member2,273Registered User Senior MemberPossible alternatives after Calculus II or even Calculus III at Community College would include:

Linear Algebra, Discrete Mathematics, Differential Equations.

178- Junior Memberanyways, its Calc1-2-3. Then calculus sequence is over. Usually calc3 is the prereq for the rest 3. you can take them in any order you want.

DiffEq is hardest and emphasis on problem solving like calc, Linear algebra is almost as hard, the problem is its very theoretical (and in h.s we don't do much if any theoretical stuff). discrete math is easy, I heard.

Take Linear algebra then diffeq, or both at the same time. dont both with discrete.

2,143Registered User Senior MemberThe sequence is not as clearly defined for college courses as it is for high school courses, and people go in different directions after calc., depending on their interests. Most people do multivariable after calc BC, just to be finished with the entire calc sequence, then linear alg, diff eq., or real analysis. You don't actually need multi. to do those, but people usually do multi before those so they don't have a big time gap in the middle of the calc series. Linear alg is the first course most students take which involves proofs.
