    What Math course did you take during your senior year of high school?

    Does it matter?

    It didn't matter to me. I think The highest I went was Geometry in 11th grade. I liked it better than any math I had ever taken, because I could visualize  the concepts in shapes.
    I totally respect people can "mathmatisize". 
    I learned more about math when I became an elementary school teacher and had to teach it. I think I did a pretty good job of teaching lower level math because I could identify with those who were struggling with it. 
    I was  initially taught to memorize, (death, to my understanding) instead of grasping  the patterns and concepts.

      I took Geometry in 12th grade while most people at that grade level were taking Calculus or advanced Algebra. I was very behind in Math and was only taking what would give me the Math credit to graduate. Everyone else was in 10th and 11th grade.

    I did not take any math course when I was a senior. Math was not my subject, thus chemistry and physics were affected. However, I majored in Pharmacy my first year in college, because of working in a neighborhood drug store. I was only an average student, the guidance counselor did not know me on sight and thus when filling out some form, where a comment could had been offered suggesting a different career choice because of poor math skills, nothing was said. So, I wasted a year of college, changed my major to journalism and upon graduation became a reporter.

    Everyone is not going to enjoy history and everyone is not going to master advance math classes. Schools need to learn that and advise their students accordingly in making career choices.

      Thanks for sharing. I agree with your assessment. My teacher had this supposedly second hand theory that the Math course that you take in your senior year determines your success in life. Not sure the specifics of whether it holds any water.

    Algebra 2.

    Of course, the public high school in California - as they commonly do - just passed me along.  I knew so little of algebra at the college level, I had to start over at Algebra 1!

    I am glad I retook it and continued math studies.  I would not have understood my major of Economics without understanding higher math.  Passing me along was NOT doing me a favor.  It made me think I was farther along my educational path than I actually was.

      Nothing spectacular for many people here it seems. I just wonder if there's any truth to my teacher's theory and whether there is any science to it. Anybody else take Geometry?
