A harder version of algebra 1

Adv. is accelerated most likely.

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

Math is taught like this: Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Trigonometry. Algebra I is similar to Algebra 2, but Algebra 2 has more difficult concepts, such as imaginary numbers. Added: I would have put statistics and trig in between Algebra 2 and Pre-calculus. You review trig in precalculus and statistics is the first transferable math course in college.

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.

Statistics and precalculus both require skills in algebra. The difference between basic statistics and precalculus is that, precalculus is more of advanced algebra. Statistics on the other hand is more computational stuff. If you are talking about basic statistics, i think it is easier than precalculus. But remember, statistics is more involved as it gets higher since it requires calculus or real analysis kind of thing, so it is difficult.

Precalculus is supposed to be a stringent and comprehensive review of both algebra and trigonometry. This is in preparation for calculus which uses both algebra and trig extensively.

If it were easy you would do it before Algebra.

In Precalculus one learns about trigonometry and it explains concepts which are introductions to calculus. Calculus uses the concepts/ syllabi taught in precalculus to develop formulas for processes for finding things like derivatives. Precalculus is also called preparation for calculus.
