I'm in 8th grade and just finished Algebra 2. What math would I do for the next 2 years? In what order would math I would do in 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade. Thanks!

• (This appears to be U.S. based.) This will depend on what the offerings are at the high school you plan to attend next year (or 9th grade, at least; some middle schools include the 9th grade). What have other students at your school taken after Algebra 2 in the 8th grade, or are you the only such person in the last few years and thus you don't know any others? What does your math teacher (or other math teachers at your school) suggest? If you haven't asked them, why not? Nov 5 '20 at 15:20
• Luke, probably the best thing for you to learn from posting here is that the world is very large. There is no big standards body that decides what happens in "9th grade" worldwide; most people wouldn't even know what "9th grade" means specifically. Similarly the term "Algebra 2" will be unclear to many people. Cheers! Nov 5 '20 at 15:41
• By the way, if you haven't taken a high school level geometry course, then that would be the next logical step. However, you could probably do this while studying precalculus, since there is little specific geometry knowledge needed for precalculus. By "high school geometry", I'm excluding basic formulas for the area of a circle, volume of a sphere, etc.—I'm assuming these are things you either know or you know the existence of (and thus can look up as needed).

• With the mandatory stuff out of the way, you will be able to go deeper and wider. Did you have proofs in the geometry course? How many theorems required proofs? Did you solve quadratic equations algebraically or using something like Desmos or graphing calculator? Did you solve a bunch of word problems? Improve what you already know and take what you can get: statistics, probability theory, calculus, maybe linear algebra. Don't forget to take physics, it works hand in hand with algebra, trig, calculus and geometry. Nov 9 '20 at 6:31
• I went to school in the US and finished calculus early. I was able to take linear algebra and calculus two in a local college. Nov 9 '20 at 15:08
