Yes. An equation has an "=" sign.

The difference of algebra and algebra 1 is that in algebra they teach you the basics. For example, they teach you about variables, graphs, how to find slopes. In algebra 1 they start using equations and and teach you how to work longer equations and all that jazz.

Both have a value

I don't really think there is a difference, but maybe the difference is that in pre-algebra you learn and practice the basic foudations, like the different steps to solve an equation, and what is a equation, and stuff like that. Begining algebra is where you practice actually solving the easier types of algebra equations.

A harder version of algebra 1

Algebra is a form (or subset) of mathematics.

Only the word "operator"

Adv. is accelerated most likely.

Arithmetic operations act on the values of numbers or expressions. Logical operations act on the truth-values of statements or equations.

Algebra 1 is a class/course that is on a higher level than Algebra.

advanced algebra is hard simple algabra is easy

algebra 1a is the first part of algebra 1 and algebra 1b is the second part. :)

equations have an = sign, inequalities do not

As far as I know it's an expression because it doesn't have an equal sign. That's the main difference between expressions and equations.

algebra 2 is more advanced

An equation has the 'equals' sign ( = ) in it. An expression hasn't.

there is no such thing as Integrated Algebra 2 but they represent the same concept

Algebraic expressions are the written relations of or between variables. For example, x2, 1/x, and x + y + z are all algebraic expressions. Algebraic equations are simply algebraic expressions that equate to something. For example, x2 = 4, 1/x = y, and x + y + z = 42 are all algebraic equations. In general, one differentiates algebraic expressions from exponential, trigonometric, hyperbolic, and logarithmic expressions by requiring algebraic expressions to be confined to polynomial expressions. I've added a link regarding polynomials below.

Pre-algebra is essentially the basics of algebra. Algebra can be tough for many, so as a way to break the ice, you (ussually) take a pre-algebra course before algebra itself. Algebra is a very large subject, spanning multiple years of courses in most (if not all) schools. After pre-algebra, you have to work with many algebraic equations in the later courses, which cannot be understood without learning the basics that are taught in pre-algebra.

An expression does not equate to anything. An equation is equal to something. Expression: x+2 Equation: x+4=2x Equivalent expressions: x+2 and 2x-2 if x=4 Equivalent equations: x+4=2x and -x+10=2x if x=4

There's no such thing as Algebra 3Edit: Yes there is. It is a college level course and when it is offered in high school it's called Algebra Three. The difference is that Algebra 3 is more in depth than Algebra Two is.

Some have alphabets

The difference is just the grade level. Elementary algebra is more of 4th 5th and maybe 6th. Pre algebra is more 6th 7th and possibly 8th.

Ionic equations differ from chemical equations in that substances that are ions in solution are written as ions in the equation

properties are based on axioms
