Advanced algebra or College Algebra is the Algebra that comes after Algebra 2. Its essentially algebra II but digs deeper in each section.

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).
