algebra or pre algebra?

last year my math teacher told me that i got good enough grades to get into algebra, but that i might end up getting C's because im not great at she gave me the option of either class. my mom really wanted me to go to algebra so thats what i told my teacher, but im not comfortable with getting C's in class and I got a B+last year but it wasnt easy. i've told my mom and she thinks that i'll be fine if i get a tutor but i dont know....what class should i take?

    Do it, take Algebra. You should dive into your math with both feet. Math is the universal language - want to understand things? Want a good job? Learn how to learn, get help if you need it. All of it can be understood by you!

    Take pre-algebra. Algebra is so important in all math in college. You need a very good foundation in Algebra.

    I think if you study hard, you can do very well in Algebra. I recommend you get 2 books, Algebra I for Dummies, and Algebra II for Dummies, both written by Mary Jane Sterling. You will have NO problem passing Algebra. Goodluck!

    pre-algebra is an introductory class and instructional class leading up to algebra. It gives the fundamentals and basics. Algebra is Algebra- you do the math ;)

    you should for sure go with pre algebra. i was in the same position as you last semester and i ended up getting in way over my head beacause my mom wanted me to take algebra and i was not ready. parents just don't understand!

    Just remember that if you take algebra, that goes on your gpa. If you take pre-Algebra, you still have time to master your skills before entering into algebra! :)

    i think you should go with pre algebra just because you don't want to push yourself too much.

  • i think you should go with pre-algebra if it makes you feel more comfortable, and just don't pressure yourself, you don't want things harder for yourself
