I took my math placement test yesterday and it was suggested I take pre-calc II. It was also mentioned that had my trig been stronger I’d have been placed into calc. My last formalized math class was in 1983. Eek!
I deductively answered many of the questions working the problem to a point, getting stuck, and then via elimination answered it. Apparently, I did that well. However, that doesn’t mean I understand the material well.
Here are my questions, and I’m specifically looking for your guidance (and recognizing the “go slow and steady, get great grades” mantra):
- Would you suggest to take the pre-calc I class to make sure I understand the material?
- Would you take pre-cursor to the pre-calc I class, College Algebra, then pre-c I, then pre-c II?
- Would you just take what they suggested, pre-calc II?
My fear is that I’m ill equipped to take the higher math and get the “A” I need without the prior prep and full comprehension.
