I am a junior in AP Physics (Mechanics). At my school, there are about forty seniors and two juniors in AP Physics C Mechanics and two seniors in AP Physics C E&M. The other junior isn't doing to well in mechanics; he is signed up for E&M but my teacher is trying to dissuade him. During my mechanics class, the two E&M kids sit in the back and teach themselves out of textbooks, the only "teaching" they can get is during my teacher's conference period, before, or after school. My teacher wants me to take E&M next year but cautions me because of its apparent difficulty. There are two classes, one of us juniors in each. At the beginning of the year, everyone expected me to fail. Now, I'm doing a lot better than most of the seniors in the class. I am in PreAP Precalculus now and I'm getting 95s and up, math comes naturally to me. My physics teacher says that since I don't have calculus under my belt, that only makes E&M more difficult. I LOVE math and physics, but I don't want to kill myself. What should I do?
