Hi, My name is Nick. I am currently a Freshman in high school and just wanted to ask a few questions. Right now I am currently enrolled in Honors Geometry which is the most advanced math class for 9th graders at my school. In 8th Grade I took Integrated Algebra while most eighth graders were taking Pre-Algebra. I have been thinking about what I want to be for a while now and since I really enjoy math I was considering becoming a Math Teacher. The only problem is is that for the first quarter I had a 78, second quarter I had a 82, and now third quarter I have a 87. For the fourth quarter I am striving myself to get in the high ninety's since you need a 83% cumulative Geometry score to continue in Honors Algebra 2/Trig, then onto Honors Pre-Calc, then AP Calculus. When I apply for a college will they look at an 86 or a 87 cumulative score for Geometry in my Freshman Year? I also attend Lancaster High School in New York which also features the regents exam by New York state. I scored a 89 on the Algebra 1 exam. Is it okay to have grades in the high eighties in Math if I wanted to major in Math and ultimately become a high school math teacher? I am just worried because in the beginning of the year I didn't care as much since my regular teacher was out pregnant. And if I keep up the high eighties in math will I still have a legitimate chance of becoming a Math teacher and being accepted into a college? Also, thank you if you respond :)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
