hi there, i was just wondering if you need to do calculus, or also if it helps alot to succeed in physics? i really like physics and maths but i am going to have a hard time getting into calulus or getting a reccomendation into it from my teacher. i am in the highest class for physics(science) but in maths i am in the third class, i am getting the top marks but still having trouble asking my teacher if i can do calculus. Today after an algebra based test i asked him what our class would go into next year and he replied that possibly applicable maths or discrete maths. He asked me what i would like to do after school and i lost big faith in saying that i wanted to be a physicist because he doesnt think i can do calculus. i said well i really enjoy physics but i think you should do calculus to do physics and he laughed and said no i wouldnt do that. This really got me down maybe im not cut out to do physics? i was just wondering how i should handle it or how i can try more effectivley to do calculus if i need to. thankyou, sorry for being so long.
