Calculus AB vs BC
I am speaking with teachers about future classes of mine and was encouraged by a guidance counselor and a former math teacher to jump from precalculus to calculus BC if I "have even the slightest thought of becoming an engineer". (I am still undecided). They described Calculus AB as a "soft and fuzzy" version of calculus, saying it's probably more suited for medical students or something similar.
Is this a possible jump to make, precalculus straight to calculus BC ? My school's typical math program goes precalc to Calc AB to Calc BC. I'd end up taking Calc AB my senior year. I know it's too early to decide (I'm currently a sophomore in trigonometry), but if I'm successful in precalculus do you think it's a feasible feat? Has anyone else ever done this ? Thanks in advance.
