### What is the operation of sets in college algebra?

All of mathematics can be defined in terms of sets. Sets are
used to give an axiomatic definition of numbers and relations.
However, most, if not all of college algebra was known before
anybody thought about sets. You have to learn what your teachers
expects you to learn, but very little set theory is actually needed
for college algebra.

###### Asked in Algebra, Abstract Algebra

### How is elementary algebra different from algebra 1 or 2?

It isn't; the algebra 1 and 2 that you get taught in middle or
high school is elementary algebra. When (if you want to) you get
into more advanced algebra, you can learn linear algebra (matrix
algebra) and abstract algebra (which involves sets, operations on
sets, groups, and many more concepts), and probably several more
types of algebra I've never heard of.

### What math do most college freshmen start in?

Generally, passing College Algebra (or higher) is required for
most degrees. Since College Algebra is difficult, it is not a good
idea to start there. Usually, the college won't let you start
there. To prepare yourself for College Algebra, you can start with
Pre-Algebra. If you find this not challenging enough, the next step
is Elementary Algebra. Then Intermediate Algebra. Thus, it is
likely that most Freshman start off in Pre-Algebra or Elementary
Algebra.
