Why does it go, (Algebra 1, Geometry, Then Algebra 2)?? Doesn't make sense O_o

    If you're smart enough to take Trigonometry or Calculus in high school, then you would know the answer. :)

    I know that confused me too. I had to fill out which math class i was doing next year for resteration. I was in Algebra 1, so i thought okay it should be Algebra 2 for next year and i chose it and turned it in. Later i realized that it was Geometry next not Algebra 2. I had to go the the councelors office and change it. It sucked.

    I don't know lol hi Jeffery (I know that's your name cause you talk in third person so much DX)
  • carrotcat 2011/12/22 09:27:08
    It's because you need to know geometry fro algebra 2. Lol, it took me 2 teachers to learn the answer.
  • Ruadon 2011/12/22 00:34:00
    when I was in school it was Algebra 1 Algebra 2 then Geometry and Trig
  • Sandy 2011/12/21 21:49:51
    It was Geometry first when I was a kid.
  • Madison 2011/12/21 17:41:32
    i took it in this order : pre algebra algebra 1 algebra 2 and geometry

  • Spyderman739 2011/12/21 15:30:10
    I know that at least one responder has already told you. It's because Algebra II leads into Trigonometry and calculus and Algebra I formalizes basic math concepts you've learned along the way.
  • GreenDay+MCR=<3 2011/12/21 07:32:51
    maybe you have to know shapes before you do algebra 2
  • Andrew 2011/12/21 06:43:58
    To test how well you remember things i would guess.

    Because Algebra I is a direct continuation of basic math after fractions, Algebra II goes directly to trig, and Algebra II contains concepts that are introduced in Geometry.

    just does

    It doesn't . . . Plain Geometry is a drop in the bucket to Solid Geometry . . . But the thing about Algebra 1 is it's not much different than Plain Geometry . . . At any rate, you don't want to "start out with Geometry" when Algebra is there . . . Then after Algebra 1 and Plain Geometry, then you go an tackle Solid Geometry and Algebra II . . .

    Because that's just the way it is.
  • lolitalovely 2011/12/21 02:03:19
    They say geometry has some fundamental algebra 2 stuff, and I guess in some ways it does. In algebra 2 I've been relying heavily on my geometry fundamentals.

    Cause people are stupid. They don't realize that you need Algebra 2 for Geometry.
  • Meownessez 2011/12/21 00:15:08
    erm i hated all types of math me being creative above all else could not understand any of it!
  • paramorefan11 2011/12/20 23:47:40
    i really don't know
  • Tabitha 2011/12/20 23:26:30
    No it doesn't. but Algebra 2 is supposed to be more complex. The teachers just like to confuse us lol
  • Kat 2011/12/20 22:32:07
    Nothing makes sense D:
  • alex 2011/12/20 21:52:49
    That's why at my school it goes Algebra 1, Algebra 2, then geometry, trig and calculus. :)

    That's a better system.
  • nataly 2011/12/20 21:52:32
    When i was in high school i had 2 math classes a year. It was algebra 1 and algebra lab(9th), geometry and Algebra 2 (10th), Pre-calc with trigonometry (11th) and Calculus 1 and 2 senior year...
  • ✞Knight of Honor 2011/12/20 21:24:37

    lol I wondered the same thing. I felt that Geometry was more difficult than Algebra 2. I think they should be reversed.

    Algebra 1 stands for (hard) algebra 2 stands for (hard as hell)
  • Meggies1104 2011/12/20 20:34:29
    I have no idea, that is dumb but my school district doesn't go like that. ( unless you take algebra 1 in 8th grade as the advanced course) but its goes Geometry(9th grade) alergba (10th) and Alergbra 2(11th)
  • ✞Knight... Meggies... 2011/12/20 21:26:35

    That makes more sense than this system. Mine also went Algebra I, Geometry, and then Algebra II also. Although, I found Geometry to be the hardest math I've ever taken; I went up through Trigonometry, but Geometry just caused the most problems.
  • Meggies... ✞Knight... 2011/12/20 22:25:45
    I hated geometry -.- i just couldn't understand it.
  • Nika 2011/12/20 20:29:07
    I don't know because most of the crap I learned in Geometry didn't help or are used in the Algebra,Trig and Calc classes I took after. I hate Geometry. The most boring math class ever. Seriously, what is the point of proofs?
  • tooner259 2011/12/20 20:22:01
    none of `em do.....

    cuz the guy who put it in that order wanted to confuse peeps
  • Dawn 2011/12/20 20:15:27
    You need to now Algebra 1 to do Geometry. You won't forget algebra if you do it all through out geometry class and you don't need algebra 2 to do geometry; it'd just make it more confusing.
  • ScoutLdr 2011/12/20 20:11:49
    The concepts taught in Algebra 1, Geometry are reinforced in Algebra 2. All of these concepts are used in Calculus and Trig.
  • freonfreakone 2011/12/20 20:01:50 (edited)
    Algebra...BAH! Never needed ANY of it. As far as I'm concerned, the push for such advanced mathematics courses in public education are way over-rated ANYway. The push should be for simple Arithmetic (including bookeeping, and other life-useful subjects) for the majority of students, and the fraction of more talented students destined to become engineers and scientists steered toward the advanced Algebra/Geometry/Trigonometry... courses. Y'know what REALLY needs to be strengthened? Frikkin' spelling, English, Civics, and HISTORY! Believe me, you'll use those in everyday conversation for the REST of your LIFE!
  • NhytFahl 2011/12/20 19:53:55
    It's quite simple, actually: To progress past a certain point in the comprehension of algebra requires an understanding of geometric principles.
  • cayden 2011/12/20 19:41:36
    It's because there are elements in geometry that you need to know for Algebra II. Algebra II is pretty much a combination of Algebra I and geometry, though, implying more Algebra.
  • SID 2011/12/20 19:31:24
    Because trig is advanced algebra 2 and so yeah. but honestly in some schools it goes pre-algebra, algebra, algebra 2, geometry, then trig. also there are things you need to know things form geometry for algebra 2
