Rising senior: Is it too late to ask a teacher for a recommendation letter?

Last spring I asked my biology & history teacher for recommendation letters, but now I heard that it's best to ask at least 3 teachers (for supplements?). I want to ask my calculus teacher for the third one because I thought I wanted to go as a biology major but then I changed to a major related to math. Would it be too late to ask teachers during summer break?

Some teachers do email back during the summer, so I would at least give it a try! Also, with school starting relatively soon, they will be more likely to start checking their email.

Good luck with your applications!!!
