abbeyej Posted March 14, 2012 Share Posted March 14, 2012 Ds is currently in 8th grade. He's a very strong math student and is finishing up honors algebra 2 right now. In looking to the next four years, I can see great value in *not* rushing into precalculus and AP calculus in 9th and 10th grades. I have no doubt that he would handle the work just fine -- but then what? Yes, he could take statistics or head to a university to take linear algebra, but... I'm thinking that taking 9th grade to do a year of discrete math with AoPS might actually be more valuable to his ultimate depth of understanding. But there are so many books! Do we go for number theory or counting and probability or one of the original (contest-prep) type books? And will a typical book last us a semester or a school year? (And how on earth would I list it on his transcript?!) Any thoughts? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
