So I just finished up intermediate and college algebra this semester with 2 A’s, and was scheduled to take pre-calculus algebra + trigonometry as a combined course next semester but my teacher just emailed me saying that I cant since I never took trig in high school and I have to drop it.
So anyway, should I take pre-calculus algebra or trigonometry first, I’ll have to take them both then move on the calc, but I’m not sure if it matters.[/quote]
I took Trig and Pre-Calc in the same semester. And, like you, I never had trig (or Calc, for that matter) in high school. It wasn’t a problem for me. Just finished Calculus I this past semester, and didn’t encounter anything that made me regret taking the two prereqs in the same semester, either. I’m not sure why it would be an issue.
Maybe you can’t take a combined course (one class, Pre-Calc and Trig), but can take seperate courses in the same semester?
