Math Classes???

<p>My school is all-IB and doesn't offer more standardized classes. They offer Integrated Math 2 and 3, Math Studies, Math SL, and Math HL. As a sophomore I took Integrated Math 3 and then SL as a junior. BUT, last summer after my sophomore year I took pre-calculus at a local University under Dual-Enroll. Is this even worth considering putting of an application during for colleges? I know a lot of kids are at multi-variable calculus by their senior year and I definitely will not be. Precalc isn't even considered an extremely rigorous class. This summer I will be taking Calculus.</p>

<p>It's a great thing to mention that to get ahead, you took a class out of school. Also, in my school, Precalculus is seen as harder than even BC calculus. Why? I'm not sure. But I'm taking it next year as a sophomore and I'm scared =)</p>

<p>Alright thanks, I am much more of a science-y person</p>

<p>Science uses a lot of math principles... Except biology I guess. What type of sciences are you into?</p>

<p>Haha all kinds. I am interested in medicine but my favorite branch of science is chemistry. Physics and Biology are both close second though. I like it all. I am on a tract at my school where I will graduate with 9 full years of science courses (3 bio chem and physics). </p>

<p>Fresh: Honors Biology
Soph: Honors Chemistry, Honors Physics
Junior: IB Biology, IB Chemistry, IB Physics
Senior: IB Biology, IB Chemistry, IB Physics</p>

<p>Oh and I took Contemporary Psychology at a local University, and will be taking 200-level classes this summer.</p>

<p>Great, best of luck!</p>

<p>You could've self-studied the AP math classes by yourself or on Thinkwell. Try it out. I'm self-studying Chem (was thinking Bio but switched). It's too bad you guys don't have that great of math classes at your school. I mean my school is letting me take AP Calc AB as a Sophmore since I'm in honors precalc this year.</p>

<p>No haha our math classes are really good. My school is IB and we are situated next to a school that has AP and our classes are just a comprehensive and harder than theirs but it just isn't recognized as much and it is DEFINITELY harder to take classes sooner than usual because they are already considered "rigorous". </p>

<p>I will definitely think about self-studying for Ap's though thanks for the advice!</p>

<p>You should put whatever you think is important.</p>

<p>If you are taking calculus in summer, then why would you not be in multivariable calculus by senior year?</p>

<p>Also, what kind of college offers pre-calculus? Isn't that only a high school class?</p>

<p>@Bob: It is a four year University and has Pre-Calculus as an Intro Class during the summer semester. And yes I would be but the way my school is run (pretty foolishly I might add) you were placed in a certain math "track" when you are a freshman, after that you really can't alter the progression of your classes. I was placed in the middle tier track (figuratively) and because of my sudden interest in Math I was driven to Dual-Enrolling at University instead of just advancing math classes in school. I really disapprove of how they work the math classes. I also made the mistake of taking Pre-Calc after sophomore year in the summer, it was essentially a review class and I should have taken calculus. At this point I am hoping to self-study and use what I learned in school this year to be placed into Multi-Variable this summer, but realistically I do not think that it will happen :/</p>

<p>I hope that explained it well.</p>

<p>Yeah, you should put it on there!</p>
