**Algebra 2 is a difficult class for many students**, and personally I find algebra 2's concepts more complicated than those in geometry. However, this again depends on each student and their personal preferences and strengths.

## Is algebra 2 higher than geometry?

It is typically taken after geometry and before precalculus so yes, **Algebra 2 is “higher” than geometry**.

## Is algebra 2 or geometry easier?

**Geometry has less math in it than algebra**, and the math that is required is less complicated. However, Geometry also requires you to memorize a lot of rules and formulas, which can be more difficult than basic algebra for some people.

## Is geometry harder or easier than algebra?

Is geometry easier than algebra? **Geometry is easier than algebra**. Algebra is more focused on equations while the things covered in Geometry really just have to do with finding the length of shapes and the measure of angles.

## Is algebra 2 and geometry the same?

**Geometry is largely separate from Algebra II material**; geometry is in place for the sake of writing proofs and reaching logical conclusions and is more of a math equivalent to an intro to logic course. Try to phenaggle taking both at the same time, as the skillsets from Algebra II and Geometry are largely separate.

### Is algebra 2 a hard class?

Algebra 2 itself is **not a very difficult class** because its core is very similar to that of Algebra 1, but practice is very important to succeed in a class like Algebra 2.

### What is the hardest type of math?

Originally Answered: What is the hardest branch of mathematics, and why? **Number theory**. It poses problems that are easy to state, but take hundreds of years to solve.

### Can you take Algebra 2 in 9th grade?

9th grade = Geometry, **10th grade = Algebra 2**, 11th grade = Pre-Calculus, 12th grade = AP Calculus AB.

### What grade do you take Algebra 2?

Students typically learn Algebra II in **11th grade**. An Algebra II curriculum usually builds on knowledge and skills that are gained in Algebra 1 and reinforced in Geometry, including relationships between quantities through equations and inequalities, graphing of functions, and trigonometry.

### Is geometry for 10th grade?

Meanwhile, students in the normal track start Algebra I in ninth grade, and **typically take either Geometry or Algebra II in 10th grade**, depending on the school district's standards for math education.

### Is it better to take Algebra 2 before geometry?

Since geometry covers the basic rules for trigonometric ratios and introduces students to relationships between shape dimensions, **it would benefit the student to study geometry before taking algebra 2**, which does a deeper dive into trigonometric topics.

### What math do you take after Algebra 2?

**Advanced Algebra / Trig** Immediately follows Algebra II. Covers all of Trigonometry and some of the Math Analysis SOLS.

### Can you skip geometry in high school?

**It might be possible to skip geometry or if your schedule permits take both at once**. In either case I recommend you do some extra geometry to insure your knowledge is adequate. High school personnel are known for rejecting repeatedly reasonable requests, don't take no for an answer.

### Can I skip geometry and go to Algebra 2?

**You do not generally need Geometry to do Alg 2**, but many of the concepts are better understood after another year of brain development. The problem is that many students forget amny Alg 1 skills and concepts in the gap year depending on how much Algebra their teacher incorporates into Geometry.

### Can you take geometry in 8th grade?

**The concepts taught in geometry in the 8th grade math class are foundational for future understanding of geometry concepts**. If students are not able to grasp these concepts, they will struggle in future math classes. This is the first year, for example, that students will make proofs to prove that something is true.

### Is algebra or geometry better?

Overall, 50 percent enjoyed algebra, 32 **percent preferred geometry** and 18 percent said they liked both subjects equally. However, when asked what was easier, these people overwhelmingly answered in favor of algebra.

### Can you go from Algebra 2 to calculus?

So it's really Algebra 3/Trig. That said, if you are intellectually ready, and if you feel you understand and can apply all the topics of Algebra 2 (including trig)- meaning your class moved quickly and finished the syllabus - and if you got an A in that course, **yes, you can start studying calculus**.

### Is Algebra 2 equivalent to college algebra?

Are college algebra and algebra 2 the same? - Quora. **If by algebra 2 you mean the second year of high school algebra, the answer is basically yes**. In college, algebra courses are traditional beginning algebra, intermediate algebra and college algebra.

### Is Algebra 2 the last math class?

The typical order of math classes in high school is:

Algebra 1. Geometry. **Algebra 2/Trigonometry**. Pre-Calculus.

### Can 7th graders take algebra 2?

So to answer your question: **no, unless you were to somehow fulfill the Geometry prerequisite before the start of 7th grade**.

### What age do you take Algebra 2?

A fairly common situation in the US is the “standard level math student” takes Algebra 1, in grade 9 (freshman year), Geometry, in 10th grade (sophomore year), and Algebra 2, in **grade 11 (junior year)**.

### Is algebra harder than calculus?

The pure mechanics of Linear algebra are very basic, being **far easier than anything of substance in Calculus**. The difficulty is that linear algebra is mostly about understanding terms and definitions and determining the type of calculation and analysis needed to get the required result.

- Differential equations.
- Linear algebra.

### What is the hardest part of algebra?

Putting abstract algebra aside, nothing is really hard to understand in algebra but there are some that are really hard to memorise. The top two hardest formulas to memorise - by far - are **the cubic formula and the quartic formula**.
