Questions about 9th Grade Math Lane Selection
Original post made by Incoming 9th Grader, Gunn High School, on Jun 29, 2012
I am very interested in math, and feel that I would really love the higher lane. However, I am definitely taking the highest lanes in Science, English, and I am taking Spanish 2 for an elective. I also have a packed schedule outside of school- I participate in soccer, orchestra, and private music lessons. In addition, I was looking forward to possibly playing on the Gunn soccer and track and field teams. I really love math, and focus hard on my work, but I am worried about time. Everyone is always saying different things about the amount of homework in the lane. I would love some advice about the amount of time that each lane demands, and what the impact of taking the different lanes is. Does a choice restrict the future classes you can take? Does it matter in the end if I take the higher lane?
Thank you so much.
