Thoughts on my math class pathway?
I apologize if I put this post in the wrong section. I am looking for thoughts on how I have switched up my math class pathway a bit. I am at a CC right now with intent on transferring to a four year next Fall. I plan on majoring in Biology so I need to take MAC2311 (Calculus I) before I leave my CC. So last semester, I took College Alg. I passed it with an A and planned on going into Precalc Algebra (MAC1140), due to my advisor telling me I need to go from College Algebra → Precalc Alg → College Trig and then finally Calculus I. So I planned on taking Precalc Alg this semester. Well it does not work with my schedule and I did not want to take it online so I went ahead and decided to take Trig this semester instead since it worked out and then take Precalc Alg next semester. I am probably overthinking it but I am afraid this will hurt me (my grade). Is it stupid to take Trig right out of College Alg? Is my advisor even correct with the pathway she gave me? If I take College Alg + Trig do I even need the Precalc Alg after that? I called an advisor at my school and they told me it does not really matter but its recommended to take Precalc Alg after College Algebra. I have never really struggled with math but I'm still afraid. Thank you in advance for any advice!3 replies
