As a high school freshman, I need to decide what classes to take next year. I was required to take Biology this year, but since now...time to decide my future. :) The issue i'm having is I love physics. I've studied everything I can on my own (online stuff, mostly, my parents didn't really want to buy me books, they wanted me to focus on other stuff and relax during summer), and I want to move to Physics B next year. I've spoken with the Physics teacher and the counselor, but my mom insists it will be too difficult and that it's better to study physics later so you'll "remember it in college." I really don't follow this train of thought, and I just want to follow what i love to study. The issue is, I don't know how to explain why I want to take physics. I love it, but my mom doesn't understand that. Does anyone have any ideas on how to explain this?
