Good Algebra 2 and Trigonometry Study Method?

  1. May 30, 2013 #1
    I want to learn algebra 2 and trigonometry and was going to try to learn algebra 2 first then learn trigonometry after that. However after thinking I thought it would be more engaging to learn both at the same time. So my question is, should I learn algebra 2 first, then trigonometry, or should/could I learn them at the same time?

    You can easily learn them at the same time if you're motivated enough.

    If you know you're strong in Algebra 1 then you could possibly learn both Algebra 2 and Trigonometry in about the same term if not at the same time. If you are not extremely strong but just good with Algebra 1, then the normal order of courses in to first study Algebra 2, and then begin Trigonometry. You would be more secure trying to understand Algebra 2 thoroughly before studying Trigonometry, since your coordinate geometry knowledge will be better, which much about Trigonometry depends.
