Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's a pretty big jump but you WILL get the hang of it. Although I took AB not BC.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Haha I heard it was much harder than trig, just wondering. I'm a little intimidated by the word 'calculus' :3

Dido525

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You can't do that actually. You have to take AB OR BC.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I know it sounds intimadating but to be honest it's not that bad and it will help soooooo much in Uni.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Dido525 Well all high schools are a bit different. I took Accl. Alg 2 last year, so this year I'm in Honors Trig/AP Calc A. So next year I will take AP Calc BC

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay but I KNOW you can't give the AP calculus AB and BC exam in the same year.

Dido525

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But don't be intimatated. Calculus is really fun and if you have any questions we are here :) .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0*sigh* What a relief! I know I'm probably just freaking out over nothing, but that's just me. I heard ap calc was scary from a senior, and i'm only a frosh so i was a little stressed o.o

thechocoluver445

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well I'll take the AP ABC exam next year, at least I think that's what my math teacher said.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1AP calc is hard though I will say. I was sad, whined and cried after doing bad in almost every test but it's soooo worth it :) .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I didn't do good because I didn't study but just about everyone got a 5.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0As long as you know your algebra, you can take Calc

thechocoluver445

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0..I didn't do so hot in Algebra II.

thechocoluver445

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0My teacher made homework optional so I almost never did it, so I got straight B+'s all year :(

NewOne

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think you will do fine on differentiation. Integration was a bit hard for me to learn.

thechocoluver445

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is it important to have a strong trig bkgd in calc? That's what my teacher keeps saying, that it takes the past years' concepts and applies them in calc

NewOne

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you know your sum and difference identities and double angle ones? That's all I used until I got to a DE course.

thechocoluver445

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yep (: I probably won't be doing DE til college, I plan to take AP Stats and Multivariable Calc as an upperclassman

NewOne

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I did? I said DE course is offered in second year. You won't take DE until you get to second year of college

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Freshman in math or engineering takes Calc I, Calc II and sometime Linear Algebra.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I should mention as long as you did decent in Algebra and trig Calc will be fine.

Dido525

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Engineers must take Linear Algebra. At least at my University.

Dido525

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This is coming from a student who used to fail at fail and managed to get a 99% on the Calculus final exam.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1As far as I know Medicine does not require extensive knowledge in Calculus.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Science students in my university still take Calc I and Calc II.

Dido525

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay same here but they don't do multivariable calculus.

timo86m

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0calc is very mechanical.

NewOne

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0They stop at Calc II which is the course on integrations and Taylor Series

Dido525

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Taylor series are sooo easy though :/ .

thechocoluver445

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes but a strong math background is recommended. I'm still a little iffy on multivariable calc, even though I'm lucky enough to take both AP stats and Multivariable. And really it's because of the track I started in 6th grade. I started Accl. Alg 1 in sixth, so I took accl. geo in 7th and accl. alg 2 in 8th, and now I'm taking honors trig/ap calc a this year because that's the way my schools work.

thechocoluver445

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I figured since I have the option, it won't hurt to be in advanced math. But is it really that necessary? Hmm.

timo86m

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the more math the better.

NewOne

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yup. She has more motivation than me. I rather play than do math. Lol

Dido525

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Sure, AP calculus would help you a lot but I know for a fact medicine does not require extensive knowledge in Calculus.

Dido525

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well... I do math for fun and I will help others in math but I just hate studying.

thechocoluver445

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Haha I'm not that great at studying either! Math just..comes naturally I guess. I don't know if I should fill Multivariable Calc up with an offcampus medicine class instead. Or even what I'm going to do senior year!

NewOne

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Everyone hates studying especially learning everything on the night before exams.

Dido525

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The thing is though... I know medicine does not require multivariable so unless you really like math I would advice not taking it.

NewOne

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's more cramming than studying at that point

timo86m

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You need calc 2 to do multivariable calc.

thechocoluver445

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0^I'll admit, I've done that soo many times. :3 Yeahh. @timo86m I'll be doing AP Calc BC next year.

Dido525

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I have Calc 2 next semester :/ . I am not really that worried though.

thechocoluver445

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have pre calc next semester! I'm not that worried anymore thx to you guys! :)

timo86m

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0calc 2 is a little bit harder than calc 1. It is easy but calc 2 makes calc1 look easy.

Dido525

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Good luck! Calculus is very very interesting once you understand it :) .

timo86m

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0calc is just awesome once you apply it to physics. It is amazing.

thechocoluver445
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Cool! I think that it's a little different for me since most ppl take calc alongside physics, but I'll take it the year after calc so I guess it's still helpful :)
