Algebra 1 during 7th. Did fine

Algebra again during 8th. Changed to public school and did not have geometry available to JH. Could not make it to next door HS for geometry as it conflicted was some necessary classes ( GATE english and history? )

Changed to different district ( another public school ). 9th graders did some weird conglomerate of algebra and geometry, however it seemed more like pre-algebra and basic geometrical concepts.

Moved again for 2nd semester. HS stuck me in an algebra class because it was too late to start geometry. Professor, while liking me, got sick of me talking to my neighbor and friends were nearly failing the class. Gave me a geometry and algebra 2 book and stuck me either in the corner ( near the window where the sun shined during the last class which was nearly guaranteed to make me nap ) or exiled me to break room of teacher's hall where I did the workbook, homework and tested myself. Recieved an A after 2 weeks.

Went onto geometry in 10th which was a breeze and algebra 2 in 11th which was interesting and precalc in 12th.

From a college perspective, most HS math courses are like an abbreviated college course level math class. Basically go into college, test and see what math level you are and continue. Most of my friends who passed AP Calc in HS got burned in College Calc bad. Just wasn't the same.

Our algebra 2 curriculum required geometry. I was in A2/Trig combined so my specific examples might not be generally true, but even for just A2, it's after geometry. The high school I went to does IB so some of the sequences are a little different.

I did A1 (8), Geo (9), A2/T (10), HL Methods 1 (11), HL Methods 2 (12). HL math methods is kind of like AP calc but we also do 3D vectors, some advanced algebra and trig stuff that's kind of random, probability and statistics, and our option was series and diff eqs. There's also SL methods, which covers a somewhat less material, and IB math studies, which is sort of like AP stat.

My methods teacher was a little...interesting, and I was kind of burned out on math, so I didn't take it last year. Next semester I'll probably take econ stat which I'm sure I'll hate because I've never been a prob/stat person.

On my math final I got a 99 and I was mad because I wanted a 100 so I asked my teacher for a curve and I think shes going to give me a 1 point curve lol.

Can't hurt to ask.... There are no curves on Regents exams (its a statewide final exam....but because smart kids and not-as-smart kids take it, its easy for us smart people). But there was this one time in Earth Science where like the whole class failed and I got 100 and instead of a curve she let people stay after school to re-take it. That was when the class was really mad at me!On my math final I got a 99 and I was mad because I wanted a 100 so I asked my teacher for a curve and I think shes going to give me a 1 point curve lol.

we can upgrade at my school though which is cool but some teachers dont let you which is stupid because they are supposed to.

Seventh Grade:

- Normal math is called math 7 and is just basic stuff

- Advanced math is pre - algebra (thats what I did)

Eighth Grade:

- Normal math is pre - algebra

- Advanced math is algebra (Me)

Ninth Grade:

- Normal math is algebra

- advanced math is geometry

- There is geometry and geometry honors

I am only in ninth grade so I don't know the rest but I will go on to Algebra 2 and trigonometry (offered in 1 course) and I am on the "advanced" path
