dancer5890 When my children were going through the process I advised them to ask their teachers directly if they felt they could "write" for them. I think in many schools if a teacher does not believe they can give you a somewhat positive recommendation, then they will decline your request. However, this only works with schools that allow you to choose between science/math and history/english teachers for the LOR. If the school specifies "current math teacher" then you really have no choice. If they don't specify "current", then you could consider using your 7th grade math teacher, who you might have a better relationship with.
