AP Stats or Lunch?
I'm currently a freshman, and I'm scheduled to take English, AP World History, Chemistry, Honors Alg 2 / Trig, and Honors Spanish. I also enrolled in AP Stats, but I realized that if I do take AP Stats next year, I will have to drop my only lunch period to do so. Would it be worth it to take AP Stats while sacrificing my lunch period, or should I keep my lunch period so that I can try to enroll in AP Stats for junior year? I'm leaning towards the latter, since I'm not very confident in my math skills, but at the same time, I'm not sure if I'll be able to qualify to take AP Stats for my junior year, since the requirements are quite high.15 replies
