What maths did you fags take each year of high school?

# What maths did you fags take each year of high school?

8th grade I was in Algebra 2, and over the summer I took Geometry on an online accredited high school. Freshman year 1st semester they let me take Pre-calculus and 2nd semester I took Calculus. Over the summer between freshman and sophomore year I took Calc 2. Sophomore year 1st semester I took Calc 3; 2nd semester Sophomore year DifEq; 1st semester Jr year Linear Algebra; 2nd semester Applied Linear Algebra; 1st semester senior year I took some Geometry course, and 2nd semester I took a proofs course

@idontknow

all of these starting at Pre-calculus were at a local community college that I lived like 2 blocks away from.

@idontknow

Good for you, I took Algebra 2 in 10th grade, and I had 8th graders in my class. I'm probably retarded.

@w8t4u

Let this post be advice to your kids if you ever have them:

If they aren't attending college classes for math in high school, it's far too late. The highest level math a traditional high school curriculum would have is extremely watered down analysis / some calculus.

@w8t4u

9th grade geometry

10th grade algebra ii

11th, 12th, no higher math's available

failed highschool due to not having 3 math credits

Pic related is Germany.

Found it once here. Can confirm.

South Korea resident

Year 9

trigonometry, geometry, pre-calculus

Year 10

calculus I and II and a bunch of courses that integrate with calculus like physics

Year 11

briefly into differential eq, linear algebra, proofs, then a general review of year 9 and 10

Year 12

optional to take more calculus, it was a continuation of year 11 but the last semester was spent on preparing us for our entrance exams and boards for university, a horrible gut wrenching experience

@w8t4u

My middle school had utter shit math so despite being in the top of the class in the most advanced math I tested into the lowest math in 9th grade because I never reached anything I was supposed to learn

9th Geometry

10th Algebra 2 Honors 1st Semester/Trigonometry Honors2nd Semester

11th Precalc Honors, Honors meant that in 1st semester we did Precalc and 2nd was Calc

12th Calculus Honors, school would not let me take AP Calc AB despite having a high A the entire 11th grade

@w8t4u

9th grade

I failed precalc and would continue on to get a D in precalc in college. thanks public school.

@w8t4u

9th grade

Can't remember. Maybe it was Algebra II. Home-schooled and I never studied or worked.

10th grade

Did this year in public. Geometry

11th, 12th grade

Didn't do anything. My dad didn't care about my studies as long as I had a PHS in every topic on our yearly SAT. Instead I gamed and spent my free time teaching myself programming and proper algorithms, high-school physics, piano, et cetera.

@Lord_Tryzalot

blaming public school

I went to public school for K-12 and got a 3.94 in my undergrad CS/Math degree at a good state school. A's in every major class. Now I'm in a top 10 CS PhD program.

My parents never got me a job, and didn't tutor me at all past like elementary school. The only privilege I had was that they cared about me and were proud of me when I did well.

Public school isn't the problem.

@Lord_Tryzalot

After being a while in university I can't even remember what I learned in school before class 10, the subjects from class 10+ are right in your picture but I think it's worth adding that these subjects aren't taught on university level.

@DeathDog

Ich konnte mich selbst nach 3 Monaten nach Schulende (Abitur) damals nicht mehr an den Kram erinnern. Vektoren, Matrizen, Determiannten, Limes waren zwar Begriffe und trotz Oberstufe LK und guten Noten konnte ich mich nicht mehr an die Theorie + Verfahren erinnern. Erst wieder in der Uni quasi von 'fast 0' mit bisschen Lücken-Wissen ging es weiter.

man is slave of woman

This makes more sense every day. Men are (biologically) the second sex. We exist purely to feed offspring, and we delude ourselves into thinking we are actually "achieving" things.

@w8t4u

High school is such a joke.

Literally all I took was Geometry and Algebra.

@Lord_Tryzalot

Keep thinking your higher intelligence or strength isn't there for women to manipulate and use as a tool to further their own ends. You are nothing.

@girlDog

it's an equivalent exchange familia

woman gives a man her moist hole to use every once in a while

man gives her all the good stuff

now, it a women keeps teasing you into spending more and more on her, probably you should reconsider how desperate for sex you are.

from various observation I can assure you that women actually even take pride in submitting to a decent man, but those are very rare

also, joke's on you. I'm a Publius Maro Vergilius

@cum2soon

I'm the exception to the rule

Ignore the millions of others that didn't succeed

Therefore I'm right

That's not the point, the point is that you're supposed to rely on yourself, not on public school to hold your hand and educate your lazy ass.

Public school is intended for people who are bad at math and don't care about it (>90% of the population?). It's common sense that if you have an interest in it, pursue it with your own means

@w8t4u

1 - Geometry, then Algebra 2

(Accelerated so I got to weasel two classes in)

2 - Algebra 2 + Trig or Trig + PreCalculus

(Can't remember which one)

3 - Half a semester of PreCalculus

(got bored so dropped it)

(I graduated early, so same year at my college/uni:)

Statistics and Differential Calculus

4 - (Because Highschool here is 4 years,I'm going to add the following year as well)

Integral Calculus, Sequences and Series (Calculus III), Differential Equations, Discrete "Structures", Vector Calculus, and Linear Algebra.

(Most unis have Discrete Mathematics labeled under Computer Science, so they decided to go with "Structures" instead of "Mathematics")

--

To be quite honest I am disappointed with myself and my highschools. If they had let me take classes at my own pace I could have skipped so many useless time-wasting classes.

If you have kids, just homeschool them or the like. Don't torture them by making them participate in a system that refuses to cater to their abilities.

9th - Geometry

10th - Algebra II

11th - Precalc

12th - Calc AB

Really wish I had gone to a different school system or home schooled, this is the fastest that they would let people go and would not let people test out or skip ahead in any way very boring.

9th - Some algebra

9.5th (over summer to skip ahead) - Algebra and geometry

10th - precalc/trig

11th - Calc AB (already self taught BC by this point, so I took the BC exam instead)

12th - Multivariable (or calc III)

9th - prealgebra

10th - algebra 1

11th - geometry

12th - algebra 2

CS doesnt need that much math thankfully

I had IGCSE two year plan in extended maths. I don't remember what we covered. The. It was IB HL maths (my school didn't offer further) which dealt with you average shit plus some hard trig identities shit, complex numbers (literally polar shit and i^2=-1) some matrix shit and determinants (analytical geometry) some basic polinomial shit and statistics (distributions and the like). It was actually really disappointing. Even my subject which was calculus was pretty shit. The only reason the exam is hard is the time which is kinda bullshit when you need to check your answer for almost all of the exam. It was more of a mess of subjects mashed up into a shitty program to painfully show off "look I'm hard and challenging". I would have preferred much less subjects but with a rigorous approach (intro to proofs and such).

having parents that helped you at all in school.

fuck you you entitled bitch, you are implying so had that you were alone without being it. blaming schools from a students perspective if no one helps (not even parents) is the right thing to do.

@w8t4u

My math education was fucked in high school, unfortunately. School system really failed me on that front.

9th - algebra 1/geometry (failed algebra 1 in 8th and complained about being held back, managed to reason my way into geometry under the condition that i'd get algebra 1 credits if I pass algebra 2)

10th - algebra 2 (failed, obviously)

11th - algebra 2 (took an online class that was inconceivably easy to fool into thinking I knew algebra 2)

12th - statistics

This is summing up a whole bunch of stuff, of course, my schooling was a pretty complicated situation do to health problems and other problems beyond my control, on top of my irresolute behaviour.

After graduating high school (managed to get a diploma early, how hilarious is that?) I became much more interested in math, and taught myself everything high school didn't, and much more. "i just cant into math xdddd" is a meme mindset.

France (could be wrong, it's been many years):

10th grade: trigonometry, coordinate geometry, precalculus

11th grade: more basic algebra (quadratic equations, trig), limits of functions and sequences (just computation, no definition), differentiation (still with no definition of limits..), more geometry (barycenters, dot product)

12th grade: plane geometry with complex numbers, more limits, more differentiation, basic integration, basic counting and probability, some very basic number theory (prime numbers, bezout, gauss, the only challenging chapter in 3 years)

@cum2soon

All public schools are the same

All students have parents remotely involved in helping them develop good schooling habits

Public school is the problem, not because it's supposed to guide you straight to a top 10 PhD program, but because if you don't luck out and get a good one or have solid parents, it will waste your time for 12 years and dump you out underqualified for any decent work and behind where you should be for any competitive college paths, not to mention often demotivating you or actively punishing good work ethic for a decade along the way.

9th grade: Algebra I (I failed)

10th grade: Algebra II (passed with a C)

11th grade: PreCalc (I failed)

12th grade: PreCalc again (I failed again)

Now I'm an Aerospace Engineer.

I didn't care. Too busy playing runescape and shitposting

I'm actually really good at math

@BlogWobbles

not gonna lie, I would have called you a retard in high school for being in those classes

how did you teach yourself? books? videos?

@Stark_Naked

If you're asking some random person on the internet to give you motivational life advice, it's not worth it. You have to want to succeed.

@Stark_Naked

If I actually tried in high school, I could have gone to college on scholarship instead of getting $60,000 in debt. So unless your parents will pay for you, I would ditch the vidya and start paying attention

@Nude_Bikergirl

I'm merely asking you if succeeding in this particular time(highschool) is truly valuable. Enough to justify my efforts, which I know for a fact I could pull off, at the cost of a lot of downtime

Is missing out on enjoying myself after school worth getting those precious A's?

12th - precalc

slightly less retarded now. however i plan to buckle down and work my way back up that point, and hopefully tackle at least multi variable calc and linear algebra before i leave CC

@Need_TLC

Nice user, I had the same exact schedule as you. I'm curious, how did you go about getting to that point (from pre calc to math under grad)?

@Bidwell

@Poker_Star

It's actually just a suggested curriculum, not a real one.

Tbh french high school math education was pretty shitty. I was lucky to find one good teacher in my last year.

The thing that really propels the good students is the "classes préparatoires" system that takes place in early undergraduate education, then the ENS's for the ones that do best in prépa

@w8t4u

Algebra, again, sophomore.

When they realized I was retarded at maths, they shuffled me into something else for junior year.

Dropped out, got a GED, did Algebra 1 in CC, passed because of a fluke.

Still can't do anything except the most basic algebraic shit.

@AwesomeTucker

@SniperWish

If any other user is interested, I compiled a couple interesting questions I found. They're quite fun to solve

@AwesomeTucker

Did number 8. Pretty good but also disapointing. All you have to really do is find the antiderivative of the expression by applying integration by parts twice, not solve the second integral, and then set t = pi/2 everywhere except for the unsolved integral which you can then easily rename as In-2

I'll see if I can do the rest. I feel sad that I was never asked a question like that in Calc 2. :(

@massdebater

Try the second number 10 in the second paper i uploaded, that's the one i got in my real exam. I managed to do it just in time but it was tricky as shit iirc (maybe it's easy but i was under a lot of time pressure)

@Techpill

They were really in your high school math class?

Not bad. In comparison to my German math class most people couldn't solve half of them.

@AwesomeTucker

Old guy here with a lot of free time and motivation here. Starting with trigonometry, how long would it take to learn the material needed to understand this?

I was thinking some sort of intro to proofs, a pre calc book, and then calculus.

Seem right to you guys?

Being in calculus in highschool doesn't make you smart, lol.

@Need_TLC

It is true that Calculus in high school is babby tier shit, but less than 20% of American students take Calculus so in some cases it does

@viagrandad

Yet I did it in freshman year of college and it was literally easier than pre-calc

Anyone of normal intelligence that studies and does their homework can get an A in calc.

There's very little new concepts to learn, it's just an extension of what you should have already conceptualized in HS.

You guys sound like football dads who talk about the glory days

If coach would have just put me in we coulda won state

man.. back in highschool.. i took calc 1 in senior year.. me so smart

kek

@takes2long

only 20% of students have parents that give a shit.

its 100% motivation / time dependent not intelligence dependent.

when you say you took babby calc in highschool all you're saying is that you had good parents and/or no social life.

I didn't even know you were allowed to get college credits when I was in highschool. college was never mentioned once in my house nor did my parents ever look at a report card or care to.

Not everyone goes to la jolla highschool

@w8t4u

I went to a pretty shit elementary school so I didn't know I could test out of Algebra and Geometry early. The easy curriculum also set me back going into high school. So I took:

Algebra - 9th

Geometry -10th

Alg2Trig-11th

Calc-12

Going to a better high school would have helped me take more advanced courses, but at the time my parents and I just went to a private school I got a scholarship(lived in a poor town with horrible public HS with gangbangers and shit). By the time my sister applied for HS my parents were more knowledgeable and she tested into an elite boarding school. She will be taking Pre-Calc her Sophomore year. She took Algebra the summer going into 9th grade, Geom now, Algebra 2/trig next summer, and Pre-calc in 10th grade. She will go into college with credits for at least Calc 3. Her school is pretty good, hope she takes advantage of the advanced courses and goes into college well prepared. Also, why do us Americans start secondary education so late compared to literally every other country?

be american

can take and transfer credits/courses from hs to uni of equivalent value

why is this even allowed?

we do learn about linear algebra, real analysis in 12/13 grade and still have to pass the mandatory courses of linear algebra and analysis 1-3 in uni with no chances of transfer. american education, seriously.

@GoogleCat

No. Because you literally can't cover the volume of each topic in depth at highschool, even 1 semester of uni are just laid of for rudimentary stuff.

the shit I learned about LA in highschool and i (re-)learned in university are two different worlds. they work with the same framework, but the mathematical context, the application, proofs and so on are typically at a university on a much higher level while in hs it's mostly plug and chug formulas.

but I think us education is mostly shit anyway so don't keep me in. buy your books, do the homework from the book, hope that most students didn't do that and prey for a good grade curve with easy exams question literally out of the textbook and get your degree with 50k-80k~ debt.

@FastChef

Search the web for a book called "Algebra and Trigonometry" by Beecher, Penna, and Bittinger.

That is, if you're wanting to get better at Math. I'm working my way through it currently.

Year 1

Algebra. I was in a school for kids with special needs so I basically learned nothing.

Year 2

I was in some weird alternative education school. I guess I did Algebra II, but honestly I don't think I actually did any math. I think I skipped all the classes and got away with it because the bureaucratic structure there is entirely incompetent.

Year 3

I was in an arts school and didn't take any math.

Year 4

Still in the arts school, I started to take pre-calc but then dropped it for chamber music

College

I ended up doing all but one course of an honors math degree at one of the American universities with an infamous honors math course, but then I dropped out in my last semester to join the IDF and work on a Kibbutz.
