Depending on which classes are available at your school I found that statistics was the easiest followed by calculus. In my opinion functions was the hardest but its mandatory in order to take calculus.

I found advanced functions to be the easiest, as long as you stay up on the work and homework!

Agreed, I think Functions and Advanced Functions were harder than the other maths.

Calculus is very easy if you work at it. It's very mechanical.

Stats is easy in the first half, ridiculously so, but the counting section is very, very hard for a lot of people.

I'd recommend taking Advanced Functions and Calculus, and Stats is you can fit it in.

Ive heard data management is the easiest of all the math courses, then i would say functions is second easiest and calculus is the hardest for me, but thats just my opinion.

A lot of people have said that Data Management is a complete joke (I didn't take it, though), but others have said that they found it the hardest. Depends on your school/teacher I suppose.

I took Advanced Functions last semester and I'm currently taking Calculus. I personally prefer Calculus and find it "easier" (for now, anyways), though that's probably because you already have a solid understanding of basic concepts from Advanced Functions. Calculus also seems more straight-forward.

thanks for the input. do you think i would be better off summer-schooling english or advanced functions?

Everyone says data is the easiest, followed by calculus.

For me I was getting a high 90's for mid term in functions and right now for calculus Im in like a low low 80 -__-

P.s Data is not easy. It's just less math more thinking.
