i've heard that.did well in both of them.so much for that rumor.probably promoted by kids trying to explain to their parents that it's not lack of studying that's causing the problem.

No, you can be good in both algebra and geometry. It's just that the way of thinking for these topics is different. Geometry requires more proofs, critical thinking, and have little calculation. In algebra, on the other hand, there's more calculation and very automatic. More "drill and ****."It depends on how you learn math that will determine your success in geometry and algebra.

no it's not true. However, if you did poorly in algebra, you may very well do poorly in geometry.It is true, howeve rthat if you don't do well in both of these, then trigonometry will be pure misery for you.

I enjoyed both subjects. Can't remember much about either but reading through some of the math questions certainly puts me in memory mode (graduate of '68).

Definitely not true, I got c's in my algebra class, and i got b+'s to a-'s in geometry. Theres very little or no correlation.
