It's great that you're curious about high school math progression! Generally, students take Algebra 2 in their sophomore year (10th grade). However, this can vary depending on their math track and the level of the course.

For students who are ahead in their math track, they might take Algebra 2 as freshmen (9th grade), particularly if they have already completed Algebra 1 in middle school. On the other hand, students who are on a slower math track might take Algebra 2 in their junior year (11th grade) after completing Algebra 1 and Geometry in their first two years of high school.

Regarding the level of the course, there may be differences between honors and regular Algebra 2 courses, but this typically does not affect when a student takes the course. The honors version might cover more advanced material or go into greater depth on some topics, but students in both versions will generally take the course during the same year.

The primary factor that determines when a student takes Algebra 2 is their math progression and prior coursework, rather than the level of the course they choose to enroll in.
