Hello. I am taking calc BC this high school year, and would like to know how to advance with my interest in Math. My school does not offer Multivariate calc and i do not want my memory to become stale the final year in high school. I was interested in the Math Research my school offered, however it was shut down due to the lack of interest shown by other students. Please help
You could sign up for math mooc classes at Coursera or edX, or elsewhere if you prefer to learn alongside others. If you are okay with learning on your own, you could pick up some books on math. I would suggest topics like linear algebra (believe me, this is useful for multivariable calculus), or statistics/probability to expand your horizons a bit, or you might study differential equations which will give a broader perspective on differentiating functions. You could do linear algebra and/or DE's in MIT OCW. One thing I would say, is that there is no question calculus knowledge will go stale with non-use. However, most people will find that they remember far more than they think they do once they get into the class. Therefore, I don't think you would be harmed at all by broadening your horizons and looking into some other subjects in math before college.
Thanks for the reply. I know that i might sound superficial by saying the following, but i would like to get a course where i can get credits or a grade recognized by institutions. This is because i am in an unconscious state of disbelief. I had to take algebra in my freshman year because the GCs did not recognize education in India. I therefore favor credits over anything else :P
Totally understandable. I would check any colleges that are near where you live and see if you can attend math classes as a guest student. If I may act old for a minute, everything you learn now will help mature your mathematical skills thereby increasing your grades in college. I believe that math in general has a lifting affect on the grades of all subjects a student takes. You waste nothing by learning! But by all means, go for the credit if you can.
