Is it possible to skip precalc/trig??? for calc Hey, im in Algebra 2 right now, and I would like to start taking calculus if possible next year??? Either I will take the AP Calc class at my high school or go to a local community college and take calc 1 first semester and then calc 2 second...(what would you recomend me doing???highschool or college) Also do I need precalc/trig for calc? because I have heard a lot of people have skiped pre-calc...so just woundering how essential it is? or maby I could try to self teach myself some over the summer, and in that case, what is important for calc? thank you for your help!!!
