If "algebra 1 is a title or the beginning of a sentence, then it should be capitalised. If it is in a sentence, but not at the beginning, then it should not be capitalised.

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.

Advanced algebra or College Algebra is the Algebra that comes after Algebra 2. Its essentially algebra II but digs deeper in each section. If I remember correctly, I had to graph almost everything and or find its domain and range. Advanced Algebra deals with polynomial functions and their graph, geometric and arithmetic sequences, conics, logarithms, systems of three equations, an introduction to matrix algebra, exponential functions, and the binomial theorem. Advanced Algebra should not be confused with Algebra I(beginning algebra) or Algebra II(intermediate Algebra).

In terms of courses at schools, the answer depends on how the school chooses to divide the subject.

Since "pre-" means before, then pre-algebra would be before algebra. Conversely, algebra would be after pre-algebra. Generally, the next class after a pre-algebra class would be Algebra I, followed by Algebra II.

No, "algebra" would not be capitalized unless it is the first word in a sentence or part of a title (e.g., "Algebra 1 Class").

no, but it is spelled algebra I .

No.
