Level of difficulty between some of these math classes

  1. Apr 6, 2010 #1
    Intermediate algebra and algebra 1 are both 5 units and then college algebra is only 3 units, so is college algebra easier then since it is only 3 units ?

    (At a 2 year college)?

    going from algebra 1 to algebra 2 (Is there much difference in the level of difficulty between the two?)

    or going from algebra 1 to college algebra ? (Again, is there much difference in the level of difficulty between the two?)

    The number of units isn't a measure of difficulty, it's a measure of how much time it takes.

    That being said, I can't imagine calling either class "difficult" by any stretch, since 14 year olds around the country learn this material all the time.
