I am currently a sophmore in high school; I am currently taking Chemistry and Algebra II. I am taking Biology II, Molecular genetics, and Trig next year, and in my senior year, Physics, Molecular Genetics II and Forensic Science. I am in band, which take two credits a year, and Health Academy, one credit a year, except for senior year in which you leave for two periods of the day to intern at local health care facilities. The Health Academy is designed to introduce students to all careers in the health care field and learn about the body and organ systems. I am planning to be a veterinarian. I was wondering if I should find some way to fit Calculus into my schedule? I like science and am not crazy about math, but I am pretty good at it and obtain good grades in both subjects. I know that math and science are critical to a proffesion in health careers, but is it really a necessary course that I will need? Will it for sure help me in college math and science classes? Not that I'm trying to be arrogant, but everyone says that you need as much math as possible, but can anyone give me a hard case in which you will need math besides measuring and mixing medicines? I can't think of any. It will probably look good to have it on my college app., but I don't want to drop a more interesting class to take it if it will make no difference and be of no use. What is it exactly that is tought in Caculus? I know that you learn about staight lines, and differential equations, but I am clueless as to what else. Also, is it a terribly difficult class, or is most of it understandable? I need some advice. Anyone taken it that liked it and think it helps in the future? Should I, or should I not take Calculus?
