If i can take on calc anyone can :P
anonymous
  • anonymous
It's a pretty big jump but you WILL get the hang of it. Although I took AB not BC.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Haha I heard it was much harder than trig, just wondering. I'm a little intimidated by the word 'calculus' :3

@Dido525 did u take A and B in the same year?
anonymous
  • anonymous
You can't do that actually. You have to take AB OR BC.
anonymous
  • anonymous
I know it sounds intimadating but to be honest it's not that bad and it will help soooooo much in Uni.
anonymous
  • anonymous
@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
anonymous
  • anonymous
well i took calc 1 and i found it very easy.
anonymous
  • anonymous
US stuff :P . I am from Canada :P .
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay but I KNOW you can't give the AP calculus AB and BC exam in the same year.
anonymous
  • anonymous
But don't be intimatated. Calculus is really fun and if you have any questions we are here :) .
anonymous
  • anonymous
*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
anonymous
  • anonymous
Well I'll take the AP ABC exam next year, at least I think that's what my math teacher said.
anonymous
  • anonymous
AP 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 :) .
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh no! How was the exam?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Calc I in my university is review for Calc AB and BC
anonymous
  • anonymous
I didn't do good because I didn't study but just about everyone got a 5.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Pheww. Is it a good or bad thing that I'm taking the AP exam soph year?
anonymous
  • anonymous
As long as you know your algebra, you can take Calc
anonymous
  • anonymous
..I didn't do so hot in Algebra II.
anonymous
  • anonymous
My teacher made homework optional so I almost never did it, so I got straight B+'s all year :(
anonymous
  • anonymous
I think you will do fine on differentiation. Integration was a bit hard for me to learn.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Is 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
anonymous
  • anonymous
Do you know your sum and difference identities and double angle ones? That's all I used until I got to a DE course.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yep (: I probably won't be doing DE til college, I plan to take AP Stats and Multivariable Calc as an upperclassman
anonymous
  • anonymous
DE is offered during second year of university
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oic. What's freshman in uni?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Btw sorry if ur getting bugged with me asking so many q's!
anonymous
  • anonymous
first year = freshman
anonymous
  • anonymous
You said second? Or did u mean first?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I did? I said DE course is offered in second year. You won't take DE until you get to second year of college
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh I meant what math class is offered/generally taken freshman/first year! Sorry for the confusion lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
Freshman in math or engineering takes Calc I, Calc II and sometime Linear Algebra.
anonymous
  • anonymous
I should mention as long as you did decent in Algebra and trig Calc will be fine.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Engineers must take Linear Algebra. At least at my University.
anonymous
  • anonymous
This is coming from a student who used to fail at fail and managed to get a 99% on the Calculus final exam.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh. I think I did/am doing pretty good. I plan to be in neurosurgery, does that change anything? :3
anonymous
  • anonymous
Why are you taking AP calc then? O_o .
anonymous
  • anonymous
What do u mean?
anonymous
  • anonymous
As far as I know Medicine does not require extensive knowledge in Calculus.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Science students in my university still take Calc I and Calc II.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay same here but they don't do multivariable calculus.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yup same
anonymous
  • anonymous
calc is very mechanical.
anonymous
  • anonymous
They stop at Calc II which is the course on integrations and Taylor Series
anonymous
  • anonymous
Taylor series are sooo easy though :/ .
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes 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.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Well.... Someone is dedicated lol.
anonymous
  • anonymous
I figured since I have the option, it won't hurt to be in advanced math. But is it really that necessary? Hmm.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Not at all.
anonymous
  • anonymous
the more math the better.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yup. She has more motivation than me. I rather play than do math. Lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
Sure, AP calculus would help you a lot but I know for a fact medicine does not require extensive knowledge in Calculus.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Well... I do math for fun and I will help others in math but I just hate studying.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Haha 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 off-campus medicine class instead. Or even what I'm going to do senior year!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Everyone hates studying especially learning everything on the night before exams.
anonymous
  • anonymous
The thing is though... I know medicine does not require multivariable so unless you really like math I would advice not taking it.
anonymous
  • anonymous
It's more cramming than studying at that point
anonymous
  • anonymous
You need calc 2 to do multivariable calc.
anonymous
  • anonymous
^I'll admit, I've done that soo many times. :3 Yeahh. @timo86m I'll be doing AP Calc BC next year.
anonymous
  • anonymous
I have Calc 2 next semester :/ . I am not really that worried though.
anonymous
  • anonymous
I have pre calc next semester! I'm not that worried anymore thx to you guys! :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
calc 2 is a little bit harder than calc 1. It is easy but calc 2 makes calc1 look easy.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Good luck! Calculus is very very interesting once you understand it :) .
anonymous
  • anonymous
calc is just awesome once you apply it to physics. It is amazing.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Cool! 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 :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Best of luck in Medicine :) .
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thanks! :D
anonymous
  • anonymous
I was never a straight A student myself :3 . Very very average :P .
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh..I'm a bit of a nerd (but, ya know, still cool ;)) I think I just stress over everything! Lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
I have to go now, it's getting late. Thanks for all of the input everyone! wish I could give medals to all of you! :D
anonymous
  • anonymous
I think everyone does when they get to Uni or College to be honest...
anonymous
  • anonymous
Bye :) .
anonymous
  • anonymous
Haha I guess I just started earlier :P Ok bye! :)
