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

idontknow

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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).

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)

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.

n-3: logic, set theory, geometry and trigonometry, functions and Cartesian geometry, polynomials, conics, inequalities
n-2: vectors, matrices, linear algebra, logarithms and exponentiation, limits, differentiation, integration basic results
n-1: more integration of complex functions, reduction formulae, centroids, arc length, etc, polar coordinates, differential equations (1st and 2nd order), complex numbers, de Moivre, roots of unity
n: summation of series, induction, elementary number theory results, groups, viete's polynomial formulas

We also did probability and statistics and mechanics from a math point of view on the side (cant be bothered to write it all down separately):

mean, std dev, combinatorics, probabilities, discrete random variables, linear combinations of random variables, continuous random variables, distributions: normal, poisson, geometric, hypergeometric, exponential, t, chi squared, regression lines (product moment correlation coefficient ,others (X=Y^3, X=e^Y, etc), hypotheis tests, sampling and estimation, inference

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. :(

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?

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.

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.

I started algebra in 6th grade but didn't care about my retard vietnamese teacher or my grades and flunked like 3 times. Could've been taking calc 1 when I was 14 I guess but 20 is cool too

Dutchfag here, I think mine was pretty similar to this (it's been a while). There was also a bunch of geometric proofs in the final (age-18) year though, maybe half a year's worth of material.

11th "precalc" was actually garbage and I learned nothing and was woefully underprepared for calc 2 in college
12th Calc 1/ The easy parts of calc 2 (parts/substitution, disc/shell, partial fractions, early DE stuff)

I was never taught trigonometry and I had to figure it out in calculus, they asked us at the end of senior year if a trig class would have been helpful and we unanimously responded yes
