If you are seeing this, please put your pronouns somewhere in your profile! It normalizes displaying pronouns so that people who are uncomfortable with their pronouns see it's ok to display them, and so people who are transgender and display their pronouns don't stick out.

The forum wouldn’t be like this if they had just stanned Loona :pensive:

Calculus 1 isn't hard, assuming your algebra/trig skills are where they need to be. Most people struggle in calculus due to the algebra/trig that is used in a calculus class, not because of the calculus.

In the United States, Algebra I is usually considered to be a 9th grade class. Algebra in 5th grade doesn't make sense, so it's doubtful for someone to get there. That phrase isn't factual anyways, since you can go to school for 8 years and still don't take algebra.

Again, how did you get there? There is no proof/evidence to provide here, so the phrase is extremely vague/non-evidential. There is clearly nothing to exaggerate here, because of that.

Explain why not the calculus? Because people memorize stuff or what? What makes the algebra skills less sufficient compared to the calculus ones? I don't know why I'm asking this. That's very subjective and not something factual.

It's very easy for most students to understand calculus conceptually. In general calculus is very visual. All three of the major calculus concepts can be understood in a visual way: Limits can be thought of as zooming into to a point on a graph, derivatives can be thought of as the slope of a graph at a point, and finally integrals represent the area under a graph. The biggest idea in calculus is that all of these concepts are related, derivatives and integrals are inverses of each other, and can both be defined using limits. In this short paragraph I explained most of the concepts taught in a calculus class, the rest is just algebra and trigonometry, both of which are used at a higher level than one is used to when first taking a calculus class.

I was homeschooled until 5th grade by my Mom. Both my parents are very smart, so perhaps it's a genetic thing. If you don't believe me I can easily provide you with proof.

lol my brother is taking ap statistics rn as an 8th grader i have no clue how he is doing but he prolly has a better teacher than me i think he is taking calculus ab ap as a freshman next year too he's def like ahead of me in math when you look at our ages

@green calc 1 is easy if you are good at math integration is where things start to complicate, but as long as you don't take it at 8am like i did you should be able to handle it.
