I am a freshman this year in high school and must make my course selections now. These selections will influence my future math class choices between AP calc AB and BC. My teacher recommended me for Honors PreCalculus, which at my school is a preparation for Calc BC, but based on my other classes I was thinking about only taking Precalculus Plus (Calc AB prep.) In the future I want to be a geologist so I want to know if this will hinder my ability to excel in my field if I only take AB. Also, if I take AB i will still have senior year to take BC. Would that make sense? My schedule right now for next year is
1) AP Government (full year)
2) AP Spanish Language and Culture (I already speak Spanish)
3) Honors English 10
4) Honors Biology
5)AP Chemistry (Double Period)
6) Honors PreCalculus (or Precalculus with AB prep)
It already seems fairly cramped for Sophomore year without the precal so I was just wondering if you had any suggestions.
