Algebra 1 in 9th grade/10th grade doubling up
Starting this year I will be in 9th grade but I am in algebra 1. I had an option to take a placement test to skip algebra 1. I decided not to do that because I wanted a stronger foundation in algebra. So for 10th grade I was thinking about taking geometry and algebra 2. I was wondering how difficult it would be to take both. Since I am also going to try to do some honor classes and maybe 1 AP class. By the way at my school I'm pretty sure you cannot do summer class for geometry. I am not the best at math but I'm not the worst.7 replies
