## Should I skip Calc AB?

However, you should not skip AB. This is because AB calculus covers the basics of calculus, such as limits, derivatives and integration (basic). This will be applied in BC Calc. When you start a semester long BC course like me, you jump right into L’Hopital’s rule.

## What is AP Stats good for?

Students learn about the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing and drawing conclusions from data. AP Statistics can prepare students for dozens of college majors beyond statistics, including criminal justice, aerospace engineering and environmental studies, just to name a few.

**Do colleges prefer Calculus AB or BC?**

While different colleges have their own requirements, the general rule of thumb is that the AB exam counts as one semester of college calculus, and the BC exam qualifies as two semesters. Students who anticipate having to take two or more core math classes may be better off in the BC class.

### Should you take AP stats?

Additionally, Statistics is probably the most beneficial math class you could possibly take. So even if you aren’t doing a math/science major, there’s a chance you’ll need to take a Statistics course, and if you’ve already done the high school AP you probably won’t need to take it in college.

### Should I take AP stats if im bad at math?

You’ll be fine. Stats, is simple… you’re pretty much just looking up things on a table. You won’t know why it works until you do calc based stats in college. Lastly, one thing you should change is perception of how good you are at math.

**What grade do you take AP Statistics?**

This course is equivalent to a one semester, non-calculus-based introductory college statistics course and is normally offered to sophomores, juniors and seniors in high school.

#### What is covered in AP Calculus AB?

You’ll learn to apply limits to define definite integrals and how the Fundamental Theorem connects integration and differentiation. Accumulation functions, the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, and definite integrals. Antiderivatives and indefinite integrals. Properties of integrals and integration techniques.

#### Is precalculus harder than AP statistics?

Statistics (the AP course) in my opinion is a slightly less challenging class than pre-calc. I am enrolled in both of these classes right now at the high school level. But as a single-year math course, pre-calculus is bit more challenging.

**Does AP statistics use calculus?**

More of us will use statistics than will use calculus, trigonometry, or college algebra; that makes AP Statistics your opportunity to learn how to produce and use data, to recognize bad data, and to make decisions with data.

## Is AP Calculus harder than AB?

BC Calculus includes everything in AB Calculus, plus a few extra topics. You’ll actually get an AB Calculus sub-score when you take the BC exam. So Calculus BC is not necessarily more difficult than Calculus AB. BC Calculus has to move faster because it covers more material, which is what makes it more intense than AB.

## How hard is AP Calc AB?

Of those who considered themselves a “math person,” AP Calculus AB was not very difficult (average score: 2.04), and AP Calculus BC was slightly difficult (average score: 2.64). Of those who considered themselves somewhat of a “math person,” AP Calculus AB was moderately difficult (average score: 3.42).

**Should I take AP Calc or AP stats?**

If you have plans to major in STEM, then AP Calculus is a must in high school. AP Statistics is a better option for Commerce, Business and Finance majors. You can choose both if you want to major in Math and Statistics.

### Which AP Calc is easier?

If you want the easiest AP tests, AP Calculus AB and BC are the easiest ones to study for and to get 5’s on, so you will be set either way.
