##### How about that

*is*interesting is algebraic geometry and analytic geometry, as Kitsu mentioned. I leave you with the topography of a standard 3D object:

Ah, good 'ole mathematics. I am a fast learner in the subject, so difficulty is not a concern with me, unlike some others. Some people can prove triangles congruent all day, but would have a panic attack upon seeing "Factor: 3x^4 + 2x^3 + 3x^3 + 6x^2." Option number one could range in complexity, depending on how much information was given. The latter is more meticulous and looks daunting at a glance, yet I would have to go with my lovely variables and exponents.

I'm in the process of getting my Geometry credit, and the subject doesn't feel as clear-cut as Algebra. There are multiple methods to approaching proofs which leads to having extraneous information that leaves me feeling confused. It also isn't as "hands on" as I think Geometry could be, mainly in architecture, but that's understandable in a high school setting. I do have a higher average in this math, despite having many criticisms directed toward it.

Algebra is a huge contrast. If you know the rules and formulas to solve or simply your problem, it can be done. If you need help with something, a teacher can give you a straight way to get the proper answer. The downside to this branch is that it has more room for error, which becomes apparent on quizzes that get dropped a letter grade for a few slip-ups in long division. Other than that, it is incredibly analytically bound and there is little room for having to notice or imply quantities in Algebra that can sneak their way into Geometry.

So after that horrible year, Algebra/Calculus was just my forte. I mean who didn't enjoy the bottoms up equations? :p

I guess I was pretty good at Geometry, but I was *really* good at Algebra. I sucked at both at first because of my issues at school when I didn't try. But, I eventually learned Algebra pretty well and was very good and helped other students in the class with their worksheets. I'm probably not as good as *you guys* at Algebra though.

But, y'know... I really want to tell my old high school teachers about*all* the times I've had to use Algebra because they said it was *so* useful...

...A resounding* zero* times. Hahaha

Also, the teachers that say you will use algebra are kind-of right, you can use algebra to help with many mundane tasks and to get the best out of something, but no, you don't

This segment describes my touch with the mathematical community. In that respect, there's no question that I am a man of the Geometry variety. I like Geometry because of its conceptual nature, and although some algebra is included, it is often at a basic level, and allows for thinking within the confines of a geometrical setting.

I used to like Algebra, but then I blew it in the eighth grade when I couldn't grasp the concept of multi-variable equations. My confidence was shot, and now my math is very clumsy. Maybe it is my weakness to algebraic work for the past two to three years that leads me to loathe Algebra. I mean, some concepts are indeed interesting, and to my dismay,

Also, the teachers that say you will use algebra are kind-of right, you can use algebra to help with many mundane tasks and to get the best out of something, but no, you don'tneedit, then again do you really need to know how to read? I mean it is really helpful no doubt(as is algebra and like all math), but do you really need to know how to read?

*This is off-topic, but I really want to answer this question.*

In order to translate the strange symbols known as "letters," "hieroglyphs," and "characters" into something that humans recognize as a real thing, several areas of the brain must be utilized. This is why a good book can feel highly stimulating, yet you get tired or bored after flipping through so many pages--the mind is putting up with a fair amount fair strain. Of course, illiteracy is going to put someone at a major disadvantage into today's society due to the importance of the written word.

So, no, you really don't need to know how to read; it is just recommended.

A little of both. I tend to lean towards Geometry though.

I was horrible at math at school so to me it is neither one of them
