Your social studies class sounds awesome. It sure sounds a lot more interesting than the "fun" stuff we do. And Karl Marx? Nice.

The planets align in a straight line once every five thousand years with the next time being in December 2012 (when the Mayan long calender ends at the time in which the world is supposedly going to end). That would mean that the probability is 1 if it is for all time (or an infinite amount), 0.0002 for any time during 1 year, 0.002 for any time during a decade, 0.02 for any time during a century, 0.2 for any time during a millennium, about 0.0000167 for any time during a month, and 0.000004167 for any time during a week.
OMG, thanks!!!! Haha, it's something my alg2 teacher told me to find out XDDDDD we have the weirdest convos in math class. Thanks tho! :D

How do you graduate early (I want to graduate early to have more time for college when I am in college)?

Haha, I could graduate early if I took a semester of English and driver's ed over the summer. :lol: Then I could graduate this fall.

Hmm... from what I know of calc (and how my school does it), you can't go to more advanced math without taking AP Calc BC. But your school might do it differently.

Just wondering, what is there after Calculus? (I ask this because my super-smart friend who made it to Nat'l Mathcounts is testing out of Pre-calc over the summer...so he'll take Calc as a freshman.)
