Hey, I'm a bit stressed about my high school math progression. I'm currently taking Algebra II, and I'm wondering what the typical math sequence would be for the next couple of years. What would you suggest I take next? Are there any advanced math courses I should consider for my senior year?

It's completely normal to have questions about your high school math progression. The typical sequence after Algebra II is as follows:

1. Junior year: Geometry or Pre-Calculus (depending on whether you've already taken Geometry)

2. Senior year: Calculus (either AP Calculus AB or BC) or Statistics (AP Statistics)

If you've already taken Geometry, you can move on to Pre-Calculus in your junior year. Pre-Calculus serves as a foundation for Calculus and covers topics such as trigonometry, functions, and analytical geometry.

In your senior year, you can choose between Calculus and Statistics, depending on your interests and future plans. If you're interested in pursuing a STEM or Business major in college, taking Calculus, especially AP Calculus AB or BC, will be beneficial. AP Calculus AB covers introductory Calculus topics, while AP Calculus BC covers additional material and is more challenging.

If you're more inclined towards social sciences or just want to diversify your mathematical skills, AP Statistics might be a good option. AP Statistics focuses on data analysis, probability, and statistical inference, which are valuable skills in various fields.

Regardless of the path you choose, I recommend discussing your plans with your school's guidance counselor or math teacher, as they can provide advice tailored to your specific situation. Finally, remember to consider your overall course load and balance your chosen math courses with your other interests and extracurricular activities. Good luck with your math progression!
