Hello! Right now I am in Geometry, and have an A. I am in eighth grade. I am very interested in studying Algebra 2 over the summer, and if it's possible Trigonometry also. If I completed both, I would like to go straight into AP Calculus AB. My courses so far for next year are the following:

Advanced Government/Geography (Necessary, highest possible course)

Pre-AP Chemistry (Highest possible course)

Advanced Literature (Highest Possible course)

Gym - Mandatory

Math - Hoping for AP Calculus AB

Spanish 4 CE (Taken at a college near by for college and high school credit)

AP Computer Programming (Java- I have taken previous summer courses in different launguages)

I am also going to take a study hall second semester, to manage the workload.

Thanks!

You need to check with your future school to see their policy about this, but most schools will take FLVS or some equivalent programs credits

If you really want to get ahead take algebra 2 online but save trig/precal for school. Algebra 2 is not a huge leap from algebra 1, but trig is a lot less intuitive because the trig identities can get especially strange.
