I am currently a 10th grader that is attending a British international school. Next year i plan to move to the American international school so i can do AP's instead of A Levels (British equivalent). The only problem with this transition is the fact that i dont know which maths class i'll place into (which is really important since its my strongesr subject and also because i plan to major in finance therefore i need to take the most advanced math classes). At my current school our maths classes are divided up in terms of ability. I am in the top set and therefore i am one year ahead in comparison with my peers. I know i have completed Algebra I, Geometry & Algebra II however the maths course i am taking now is IGCSE Additional Maths. I think most of the topics taught on trig etc are the equivalent of precal as i am have looked at the other schools precal syllabus.
Can you guys please look at both the syllabuses and tell me if i am covering all the essential prerequisite topics i need for AP Calculus AB as i prefer to take that next year.
