In my goal to self study up to Calculus, I've utilized the very useful Insights page on what books are best for a real intuitive understanding in basic high school mathematics such as Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry. I purchased all the recommended books and I was wondering what some of the differences are between some of the "subjects".(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

To cut to the chase, what's the difference between:

1. Algebra and Abstract Algebra

2. Synthetic Geometry and Analytic Geometry

I searched around but really all I could find was problems and books for them. I'm really just looking for a quick idea of what their differences are in a quick simple manner ie "Synthetic Geometry is about abc and Analytic Geometry is about xyz."

Thank you for any help.
