Can you switch between calc based and algebra based physics classes?

Before I transferred to university, I took a calc based physics class, but now at university, I want to continue on the algebra based series (to avoid the engineering competition, bio major).


The concepts in the beginning calc based physics class should pretty much be the same as the beginning algebra based physics series right?

I'm just curious if I can start on the second part of the algebra based physics series with a prereq of calc based physics 1 complete instead of algebra based physics 1 complete....

Yes, this can be done. No schools ask specifically for calc-based physics, so if you want to take algebra-based physics, go for it.

Doesn't matter and it is better to take algebra based because it is easier.
If you are not engineering major then why bother.

Bio major doesn't have to take calculus based physics anyways.

I hope this helps.
