      Better to just take Calculus straight on. Pre Calc doesn't really teach you anything for Calculus.

      You can't do that in a lot of schools, pre calc is a requisite for calc here

      i can take math class in the summer, so that when you are a senior, you don't have any math classes in your schedule.

      Before you do calculus, make sure that whatever job you're planning to do involves it, otherwise you just wasted a bunch of time learning something you'll never use.

      Isn't that the point of school anyways?

      Actually, the point of school is to make sure that kids over the age of like.. 12 are supervised for 6 hours a day while their parents work. Because for a main majority of students, even if they are interested in the subjects they picked, probably won't end up using even a quarter of what they learnt in schools. Hell I loved maths to death, it was probably one of my favourite subjects but teachers always tried to act like "I totally won't have a calculator with me everyday"

      Truth be told, I don't. But I do have my phone which has a calculator app on it.

      Well, it does improve our logical thinking as a while, plus, in some cases, helps the student decide on a *possible* career path beforehand, so that they can work towards it and achieve it. In the lesser cases if students going into research and further as a scientist, school can help because the basic sciences taught there give a good foundation. Also, recently the IT industry has bloomed, so many people are becoming computer engineers, software and hardware. As far as software is concerned, coding requires logical thinking and analysis, which math helps develop, maybe they won't use calculus or trig directly, but they now have the ability to think and create stuff by themselves, and there's always that inexplicable joy when you solve a particularly difficult math problem hehe. Overall, I guess the school does fall into what you said, but has some perks too, maybe.

      The school systems for the most part are not teaching anything to this modern day and age. Instead we're stuck being taught poetry from the 14th century and being asked what went wrong with romeo and julliet. Meanwhile you step out of school and an employer asks you what experience you have with 6 different softwares of which 5 you've never heard of.

      Romeo and Juliet are kids. Who were stupid enough to trust Fliar Lawrence's plan. Which involved drinking poison and commit suicide.

      Oh well, yea. I agree with the messed up education system. What bothers me is that, even when people know it can be better and more useful, why do we still adhere to this system..?

      Because teachers are too lazy to do any actual work in releation to teaching students. And they wonder why they think they're under-paid.

      At the fundamental level, education systems are designed to teach people how to learn. If you can become a good learner, it makes it easier to pick up the necessary skills to be used in employment.
      Even at the post-secondary level, you'll find fieldwork is a whole lot different than what is taught in schools, but employers are looking to see how well you can process information that you absorb and apply it to the job

      Also, in consideration for why we are still reading Shakespeare in schools today, this is an interesting article to read:

      Well tbh, if i didnt take precalculus, i wont be able take calculus next sem, if i cant take calculus, they wont allow me to take physics 1&2 in the next school year.

      Im planning on taking electrical/or electronics engineering

      Calculus is fun sometimes. Some problems require quite some good thinking and it's satisfying when we get it right. (just as irritating if it doesn't lol)

      Hey, I'm not saying that everything the schools teach us is useless. Just certain aspects of the school curriculum are no longer relevant. Pretty much every job you do will involve mathematics to some extent. We all need to learn how to spell and grammar as well, but then you get to the more pointless aspects like learning poetry which you'll never use again in your life. That time could be better spent teaching us relevant information like basic first aid or even things as simple sounding as paying tax/ how to get a mortgage, manage your money.. literally hundreds of tiny things like that which would help thousands of students when they finally leave school. They'd leave school actually feeling like they can do something in the world instead of feeling like they just wasted the last 5 years of their life and now they don't know what to do.

      ^ thats true ...

      That unfortunately seems to be a quite circumstantial. In our curriculum, basic first aid and CPR are taught as part of our mandatory Phys. Ed. program, and we've spent entire units in Math classes learning about financial interest, mortgages, taxes, etc. We've also got a mandatory CALM (Career & Life Management studies) course that is designed to prepare students for the first few years of life (potential career exploration, cost of living on one's own, time management, relationship discussions, etc.) However, my teacher slept through a lot of those classes so it wasn't very helpful in my case. I'd like to think the education system is making improvements (and I'd argue it certainly has, at least in most areas, compared to 20-30 years ago). Hopefully it'll continue to improve for future generations of students.
      (also, learning poetry may seem redundant, but it's essential in teaching people to extract and interpret meaning from vaguely-detailed sources. It can also improve students' literacy. More information can be found here:

      I understand that not everyone is from Canada, hence the distinction of "In our [meaning the Albertan] curriculum..." Apologies if my comment had seemed presumptuous or as if I were speaking for all students with my experience.
      However, even in Canada, our education systems do have some variance (due to them being provincially controlled), but I would think that even the overall international trend would be that school systems are rather effective and teach plenty of important skills and knowledge to prepare students for life, especially when compared to past systems or systems in less affluent countries. That was the original point that I was discussing. I'd used my personal experience to exemplify how some schools (not all, I acknowledge that) do teach what you had considered to be important for students to learn in order to feel prepared when they leave school.

      Even just browsing through some of this stuff really makes you wonder how this can be an approved curriculum. It has some useful stuff but it is filled with junk. Hell, teaching the HISTORY of Australia or even world wide important events IS NOT considered important enough to be taught in our schools as a mandatory aspect of our curriculum. I could go on for ages on what is wrong with our curriculum, given all this stuff was being taught 20 years ago in schools with little to no change, there is little debate that this becomes of matter of "why it hasn't" and not "if" the curriculum should be changed.

      Also, I just looked a little into the grade 9-10 technological on the australiancurriculum website.. I remember learning a little web design.. after that.. nothing. Nada. Schools skimp on the important aspects claiming areas are not "engaging enough" and would "take too long to cover".

      Bare in mind I went to 3 different high schools, so I saw a range of how schools were implementing the curriculum. None of them matched each other, but none of them covered anything of relevance either.
