Question:Whats the difference between algebra and algebra 1/2

Answers:These are most likely course codes that your school uses; there is no standard "algebra 1/2". By the name, I would assume that the school takes 2 semesters of 'algebra 1/2' to cover the same amount of material that 'algebra' covers in one semester. 'Algebra' is most likely an accelerated version of 'algebra 1/2'. Again, this is just a guess.
