it depends on school many do geometry like my school but some do algebra 1. Geometry in my opinion is the easier one

It is typically Algebra 1 unless the student is a year ahead, which some are. If so, it would be Geometry.At least, that's what it is here.

where I'm from (Texas), most 9th graders take algegra I. However, the more advanced kids will take algebra I as 8th graders and take geometry in the 9th grade.

It depends on how good you are at math, and what you did in middle school, some have to do algebra. I did Algebra in eighth grade so when I was in ninth grade I did geometry.

That depends a lot on the school, and the ability of the students. When I was in the 9th grade, a lot of the students still had general math, with vestiges of the higher orders of math, such as Trigonometry, Geometry, and Algebra. All these were basic in nature, and not full courses in these disciplines. For those students who could handle the higher maths, Algebra was common, as well as the brightest having Geometry, and Trigonometry. The New York state school system used the delineation of Practical Local, Local, Regents, and High Regents. In reverse order, most able, able, less able, and thoroughly confused past 1+1, to handle higher orders of math, and abstract reasoning.

umm, well, i live in mexico, and my friends that went to study 9th grade to the US, came back and had to repeat the grade because we have a higher, (i dont mean better) level of math,But i studied algebra in all of its colors, and geometry like scales and stuff like that.

It depends on the school and the student's ability.Those who had high school math in middle school will typically have geometry. Those who didn't have Algebra 1 in middle school will have alg1. If the student needs a different math, there are usually general math classes. Also, depending on the school, the student might be in the integrated series (mixes geometry and algebra over three years) instead of traditional Geometry and Algebra classes. I personally dislike the integrated math (I've had both thanks to school transfers).So, there are many factors; I'd suggest you find a copy of your local high school's program of studies (it has all available courses in it and recommended courses).
