### 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.

### What college math is higher college algebra or finite math?

Calculus is higher than Algebra. There are also courses on Linear Algebra and Differential Equations that are higher than college Algebra. If you contact the Math department of any college they should be able to give you a specific answer as to what courses they correspond with and what a challenging math class would be.

### Would you recommend taking college algebra and trigonometery at the same time?

Honestly I wouldn't... College Algebra in itself is difficult. However, you might not think so, but it does come with a heavy workload which would second my opinion too. Trig is on a whole new level with math. It also has a heavy work load, and it is twice as more difficult as Algebra. Take your time and choose one, first.. then wait and take the other.

### Is algebra two a college requirement?

In a way yes, Algebra 2 is essential in order for you to comprehend topics which will be in algebra. Such as finding the slope of perpendicular lines and parallel lines, those topics are presented to you in Algebra 2 and if you understand them at least 45% then by the time you get to college algebra that knowledge will be reinforced

### What colleges do not require college algebra to get a degree?

I don't think there are any. College algebra is usually considered a general studies requirement for all degrees. Revised, slightly: Technically, I didn't take College Algebra to get my degree; I took higher math classes instead. The first day of Calculus 101 was a (really easy) test to see if we belonged there or needed to take College Algebra and/or Trigonometry first. So, in that sense, most colleges don't actually require that you specifically take…

### Why will polynomial factorization be important later on?

Because as u get into intermdiate and college algebra in college you have to know these things to solve other equations such as setting ur answer to Zero after u get ur factorization answer. Only if you are starting pre-algebra is why someone would be asking this. But if ur already in college algebra and asking this then my answer doesnt apply to you.

### How difficult is the college algebra clep test?

College Algebra is a specific subject test, so you will need Algebra knowledge. However, if you have high school Algebra II level knowledge, it shouldn't be a problem for you. My only preparation for that exam was a high school Algebra II course. **Full Disclosure* I am an employee of www.SpeedyPrep.com, a 100% Guaranteed CLEP exam preparation site.*

### 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.

### Do you have a tutor that can help with college algebra homework?

If you are taking College Algebra, I am going to assume that you are in a college or university at present. Every college and university I know of has an academic learning center. Within this center there is peer and faculty tutoring, and it should be free. Check with your academic advisers for appropriate direction. I think online tutors are best persons to guide students doing their studies. There are several online tutoring services are…
