I'm thinking about should I take AP Calculus BC or AP Stat... (I already finish my Cal AB in my junior- some parts are hard for me but the rest I'm fine with it). Many people said that AP Stat would be easier than Calculus BC, but others said that they are the same, so I'm really struggle with my decision. Please give me some advice...
I'm planning to take Business major in my college, which will be better for me when applying?</p>juliehoanggTue, 11 Jul 2017 06:38:41 -0400https://www.prepscholar.com/experthub/questions/1414/should-i-take-ap-calculus-bc-or-ap-statap_calculusseniorap_classesap_statisticsmathAP Calculus AB or AP Calculus BC?https://www.prepscholar.com/experthub/questions/1321/ap-calculus-ab-or-ap-calculus-bc<p>I'm currently a sophomore in Pre-Calculus Honors with a 98-99 average. Math comes (relatively) easy for me, but my heart truly lies in the natural sciences.</p>
<p>If I'm planning on majoring in Biology when I get to college, should I take AP Calculus AB or BC as a junior? (At my school, you can't take both.) I know AB covers the 1st semester of college calculus, and BC covers both semesters.</p>
<p>Since I'm probably majoring in Biology, is it necessary to do BC, or would AB be enough to give me a strong foundation in college calculus - or possibly even let me skip it?</p>tdangtestSat, 07 Jan 2017 21:39:23 -0500https://www.prepscholar.com/experthub/questions/1321/ap-calculus-ab-or-ap-calculus-bcap_calculusap_classesmathSelf Studying Advanced Mathematicshttps://www.prepscholar.com/experthub/questions/1283/self-studying-advanced-mathematics<p>Hello, my name is Alex Figueroa and I am currently a high school junior. I am highly motivated to learn math and wish to pursue a PHD in Applied Mathematics. </p>
<p>My question is: Would my hard work and motivation self-studying math be noticed by university admissions? If so, would it increase my chances of admission to Stanford, Princeton, or MIT? I have so much passion for mathematics (I want to learn everything there is to learn about it, and add to the plethora of mankind's mathematical knowledge), yet I fear that universities will fail to notice it. </p>
<p>I have began self studying calculus and am now ahead of my AP Calculus AB class. I plan to finish self studying Calculus II, Calculus III (Multivariable Calculus), and Linear Algebra before the start of my senior year. However, I searched online for opinions and perspectives on how universities would view this. The responses I read we generally along the lines of, " Colleges don't like self study. They want the student to fully grasp the concept, which is "not possible" through self study. They merely think 'This kid had nothing else to do with his time but read 1000s of pages of textbooks.'" However, I strongly disagree because mathematics is my passion. I love learning about it and think about it all the time, even when I'm supposed to be "hanging out" or "relaxing"; it stimulates my mind and is extremely pleasing to learn. I have a deep level of understanding for the mathematics that I have self studied so far and have put my mathematical skills to use by self studying even more intensively than as if I was in the class: assigning difficult exercises from multiple sources, taking notes from textbooks, videos, and online lectures, and occasionally, intuitively, discovering new (new to me) theorems before coming across them in my studies. I also plan on taking higher division classes at my local college.

Im doing math in my free time instead of games! Are there any extra curricular math sites (NO GAMES) that i can use for my free time? i cant find any.</p>tomlolly500Sun, 16 Oct 2016 16:03:40 -0400https://www.prepscholar.com/experthub/questions/1186/what-are-the-best-math-extracurriculars-sites-for-high-school-studentsmathsophomoreNotre Dame Pre-Med Program: Am I on the Right Path?https://www.prepscholar.com/experthub/questions/1185/notre-dame-pre-med-program-am-i-on-the-right-path<p>Hi, I am currently a sophomore at a Catholic High School, I currently have a 4.0 GPA unweighted and I am currently taking all honors courses at my school except in my math class. I am a year advanced. I am trilingual (English,Spanish and French), my extracurriculars include: Mass Choir, French Club, Academic Team (competitive). I founded my school's first Science Olympiad, and I am part of my school's first girls' lacrosse team. </p>
<p>I wish to apply to the University of Notre Dame for their pre-med program but I'm afraid I am not on the right path. Since I know Notre Dame focuses a lot on the rigor classes I'm scared that my math class might affect me since I do plan on going into a medical career. Am I on the right path? If not, how can I get better? </p>yaz725Sat, 15 Oct 2016 22:52:10 -0400https://www.prepscholar.com/experthub/questions/1185/notre-dame-pre-med-program-am-i-on-the-right-pathnotredamesophomoregpacollegeadmissionspremedmathACT math score questionhttps://www.prepscholar.com/experthub/questions/768/act-math-score-question<p>Hi, my son just took his ACT for first time and got a 36 on both reading and science sections and 33 on english, but on math he didn't have time to finish and got a 27 so his composite is 33..... should he take again to try and get his math score up to 30 (that's where he scored on the practice tests, not sure he could do much better it's not his strength). But then not sure he would get the same perfect scores again on the other sections. Don't know if it's worth it.</p>christineMon, 25 Apr 2016 13:08:18 -0400https://www.prepscholar.com/experthub/questions/768/act-math-score-questionmathact
