So I am trying to finish up my associates and in my extreme laziness I have put off math classes until now!
My adviser is not much help because it is mainly my choice, but I figured I'd ask here.
What's better to take?
Applied Calculus I with Statistics I
or
2 Semesters of Calculus with Analytic Geometry?
I don't know if I want to go biology or chemistry major so that's why I don't care which one, but I also suck sufficiently at math too.

I am a math person but i think Calculus is easier than Statistics. I could have just had a bad professor for Statistics but I remember it was one of the only math classes I struggled with.

So you need 2 semesters of math and the first option is one of each of Calc and Stats?

Analytic Geometry with a Calculus base is going to be pretty challenging and I'm not sure how useful it will be, honestly. A semester of Calc and one of Stats will give you a pretty great foundation for whatever sciences you go towards - Stats supports Biology really well, and Calc gives you a generally good understanding of a lot of phenomena (like seriously I feel like I understand life better as a result of Calc I), and puts you in a good position to take useful physics classes later if you end up needing them.

Analytical Geometry is pretty intense, comparatively, and would be good for an engineer or architect maybe. *shrug*

I actually liked all my stats classes...so I'd be taking the calc and stats option.
