Here’s the catch: I want to take a different course during the coming summer. I wanted to take US History to get it out of the way and also because the teacher scares the living daylights out of me. But listening to my counselor’s recommendations put me in between the two options. History or math? That’s all I can think about. I was wondering if it’s possible to spread out the math courses? What I mean is can I take US History this summer and take geometry during my sophomore year? Then the next summer I could take algebra 2 to get me ahead for the regular school year? I would end up doing trigonometry and pre calculus in my junior year. I would technically have all 3 credits but I could take regular calculus in my senior year anyways. Would this be a good option that would help me in my career?

Also, I was planning on taking early college so I’m not too sure how the credit system works with that. If I take an early college course for math also throughout the year, I’d be ahead an entire grade right? I’d have my regular sophomore math class and my college math class right? Or would it just be like I take the class as a dual credit and get credits for both college and high school?

I know I should probably talk to my counselor more about the early college situation but if any of you have some advice for that, It’d be great if you could share! Thanks!
