calculus is advanced mathematics that is used in all the higher sciences, in the USA most college students will take at least a year of the course. Behold! WIKIPEDIA!! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calculus

You'd start to cover it in AS maths. Definately a bit more in A2 and for sure in FP.

This year sucked due to my idiocy. But since I got in on the electrician-program, we'll see how things work out.

yeah, also. Dont listen to your academic advisors. They just want you to stay longer so you pay the school more. Do your own research and figure out what you want and then just tell him. That got me able to graduate on time while most of my friends cant.

thats really my only advise :P

you do in time, spending another semester or year is just stupid. Especially when you can graduate on time if you take the time to research what classes your going to take and when.

Graduated College last April. Going to a new one in September. I find it much fun.

Don't know if you meant me but, no, we don't. First there's "ground" school, then the gymnasium and then (if you want to go even higher) there's "high" school. You only pay for the high school.

No problem. After all, about everything is made to bring in money in America. We don't pay for dental care until we're 18, we don't pay for healthcare, we only pay for the highest education and we got money so that we can survive from the state if we don't have enough. ;) Quite awesome.

Well i did really well, just finished 8th grade (in the US). Finshed middle school with all A's and B's (cept for maybe one or two classes). Finshed my last quarter with all A's (finnaly). Finshed the HSPT's (High School Placement Test) as one of the best 5 or so in the class, Hark got valevictorian. . .

Ended up going to the better of the two schools, with an Academic Scholarship for 1000 dollars. Overall i did very well. I'm working now and have about 600+ dollars from that... Going to Florida (hopefully) to visit my aunt and uncle. And starting highscool after the summer.

And best of all my WARSTORE stuff came in today  :)

At above poster, nice one mate i'm happy for you..

With the summer holidays (6 weeks off school!) comeing up i think i'll initiate operation fat b*stard :D

I can't focus in class...some teachers are very loose and dont care if we draw and things like that...they have a "its your qualifications your ruining" kinda attitude. Which is hard for me because without guidence + strict teachers i stray from learning.

Better start changing that. I found that from 6th Form onwards; teachers and lecturers just read from textbooks. Little to no guidance and definitely not strict to make sure you've done your 'homework'.

Mord was in my class and he did real well in school. He's gonna be paying taxes just so I can go to school. I graduated with him the first week of June and I got Valedictorian of Class of 2008. In the end, I ended up making $2,500. Starting with all honors and geometry in high school.
