Should we take algebra II before geometry?

Geometry is designed to be taken prior to Algebra 2 with Trigonometry and after Algebra 1. But this does leave some concerned that their student will forget all they learned about algebra in a year of geometry. This should not be a concern for the following reasons.

  • Harold Jacobs geometry textbook (and our videos) has algebra reviews at the end of each chapter, so students have a smooth transition between Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 with Trig. They won’t forget the concepts.
  • Geometry itself is a math course and has algebra build into the material. Your student will be solving for X often.
