Anybody ever taken a college chemistry class without first taking algebra?



Answers:
While technically I suppose you could do it, some of the concepts in Chemistry draw directly from skills you learned in Algebra. (For example, balancing chemical equations and ox-redox reactions.)

I didn't do it, and I'd recommend you not try it either.
I wouldn't recommend it, because chemistry uses ALOT of algebra. Plus, take a college level chemistry class like AP chemistry without taking algebra 1 or chemistry 1 is pretty much a guarantee for failure, unless you're a genius. Again, I really wouldn't recommend it. There's a reason why there's prerequisites for classes. You can't do nearly as good on chemistry 1 with no algebra experience as the students who did have algebra experience.
