How did you take Algebra II as a Junior, but took Geometry as a Sophomore.

In our school, Algebra II comes before Geometry--Isn't this always the case?

By Tweaks (Tweaks) on Tuesday, July 15, 2003 - 10:32 am: Edit

Progex -- that's actually not the norm. Alg I -> Geo -> Alg II is more common.

The schedule is fairly rigorous as long as you maintain a pretty good GPA with it. However, it really depends on what you're shooting for; it isn't Ivy material, for example, but should be plenty good for a state college.

whoa Tweaks, speaking with such pomposity eh~ let's see your stats?

I think the stats are very good even for ivy league. Well of course, depends on the actual grades too =)
