I have already completed Algebra I (A in both semesters), 1 semester of Geometry (A-, 1% away from an A), and I'm on my way on finishing my second semester of Geometry (currently, I have an A+). I was going to continue next year with Algebra II/Trigonometry, then Pre-Calculus Honors (the honors course expects you to be good in Trigonometry) and finally, AP Calculus BC. However, due to many of my friends/classmates telling me that Algebra II/Trig is an easy class, I'm thinking of doing Algebra II with Trigonometry (they're taught in the same class) over the summer. The course will be taught for 27 days for 6 hours (4 hours and 45 minutes of which will be the actual class time, while the rest are breaks) Monday-Friday. I just need other people's opinions of whether I should take the course over the summer or not. I think I'm good with Algebra, considering that out of 26 students, I was 1 out of the 3 people that passed the High School Exit Exam for Algebra I in my class. If I do do Algebra II/Trigonometry over the summer, next year, I have the option to either do Pre-Calculus (if I feel like I'm struggling) or Pre-Calculus Honors (if I feel like I'm not struggling). If I do Pre-Calculus, then I only have the option to take AP Calculus AB (which I don't want to). However, if I do Pre-Calculus Honors, I have the option to do AP Calculus BC and then another math AP class in the year after that. Also, if it helps, I live in the state of California. So what's your opinion?
