No, not really. Calculus uses algebra to solve equations, but calculus is a branch of mathematics all its own.

Are calculus and linear algebra courses hard for an individual who got an a plus in algebra?

you don't go from algebra to calculus and linear algebra. you go from algebra to geometry to advanced algebra with trig to pre calculus to calculus 1 to calculus 2 to calculus 3 to linear algebra. so since you got an A+ in algebra, I think you are good.

What math comes after calculus?

Differential equations, Linear Algebra, Abstract Algebra, Real and Complex Analysis, Advanced Calculus, and lots of other fun stuff.

Should you take advanced math before calculus?

No. College Algebra and Precalculus (or Trigonometry) are enough preparation to take Calculus.

Where did the word algebra and calculus came from?

algebra - arabic, calculus - latin

What course to take before advanced calculus?

You must have a strong basis in Algebra, Algebra II, Geometry and Trigonometry. Usually high schools offer a pre-Calculus course which is somewhat of a conglomeration of the aforementioned courses. Then you would move into differential calculus, integral calculus, vector (multi-variable) calculus, and finally differential equations, which is considered to be at the top of the hierarchy of the calculus courses. So take Algebra, Algebra II, Geometry and Trigonometry to get your strong foundation before begining the calculus sequence.

Can spreadsheets be helpful with advanced math areas like algebra and calculus?

Yes. I use them a lot when answering these questions.

Why do you have to learn algebra in maths?

Because Algebra is the foundation of Calculus, and Calculus is the fundamental measurement of the Universe.

What typical math courses are required for engineers?

Elementary algebra Intermediate algebra Advanced algebra Plane geometry Solid geometry Trigonometry Introductory calculus Intermediate calculus Advanced calculus Numerical analysis Differential equations These are required, but there's no law that says you can't take more math if you want to. In fact, it's a good idea to try to get more math if you can fit it into your schedule. It's a piece o' cake.

What is after algebra 2?

Is it true that if you are good at algebra you will have problems with calculus?

False. What makes calculus "hard" is the Algebra. If you have a good understanding of Algebra, you will not struggle in calculus, especially considering the fact that the fundamentals of the class- Calculus 1- aren't very difficult to grasp.

Is pre-calculus trigonometry easier than pre-calculus algebra?
