Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Taking a steady level of math courses throughout school is very important, and can benefit your future greatly. This will prepare you for more difficult levels of mathematics in college. Many majors in college require a certain amount of math classes taken, and Algebra 3/Trig will get you ready for the intense work, while it is doable at a high school level at the same time.
Course highlights:
Algebra 3/Trig focuses on a variety of subjects. You learn how to read and identify graphs, solve many types of equations, and factor different types of equations in multiple ways. Factoring plays a large role in this course, and knowledge of the subject is needed throughout the year. Many of the subjects reappear after learning them, so be sure to have a tight grasp on all lessons.
