Hi, I am a Junior in high school and if I can, I would like to do Independent Study next year based on either the OCW for 8.20 - Intro to Special Relativity or 8.033 - Relativity. I wanted to know if they most likely would be possible for me, if I would need to learn more math for them, and which one I should take and the difficulty of each math-wise. The textbooks they both use are A.P. French's Special Relativity and also Resnick's Intro to Special Relativity. Just to give you an idea of my academic level (and math level), I will list the college and AP courses I've taken/taking that are related to science/engineering/math. AP Chemistry - AP Score: 5 AP Physics C (Class will cover both exams) - Currently taking (have A in class) Calculus 1 - A Calculus 2 - A- Calculus 3 (Multivariable) - A Differential Equations - Currently Taking Engineering Materials - A (and currently taking lab for it) Statics - Currently Taking Physical Chemistry 1 + Lab (Just covers Thermo)- Currently Taking Organic Chemistry 1 - A- Also, I will be, if I can be taking Linear Algebra and Number Theory with Cryptography (depending if I get accepted into the summer program or not).
