I am a freshman from North Carolina currently enrolled in a small high school in the middle of nowhere. Earlier this year I decided to try to dig myself out of the hole I am in and begged my counselor to let me take two maths, Honors Geometry and Honors Algebra II. I am doing well in both of these classes (100 average in both) and have A's in all of my other classes. I wish to attend a residential Junior and Senior high school over in Durham, The North Carolina School of Science and Math. This school offers high level math and physics classes and I would like to take AP Calculus prior to attending to allow myself to take full advantage of the opportunities there. My question is how should I go about advancing myself. I can take pre-calc over the summer on the NCVPS (online) or I may be able to skip it entirely. Then I have the option of taking AP calc AB in a classroom (highest math at my school.) or taking AP calc BC (harder) online. I'm skeptical about taking such an important class (or am I wrong?) online, and I think the the presence of a teacher for questions may be beneficial. I will admit that am pretty scared to ask my counselor to advance myself again after the ordeal I had to go to just to take two maths. It should also be noted that only Juniors and Seniors are allowed to take AP classes(because of this there is a 34 way tie for 1st in the sophomore class!) under normal circumstances. Any and all advice is welcome. Thank you in advance.
