I'm looking for a site where I can ask a question regarding the math education system in the US versus Spain. I asked for a site recommendation on the meta SE, and they suggested this site might be appropriate, but I thought I should check on this site's specific meta first. My question is as follows:
I live in the US, and as such, I'm used to my high school math courses being essentially organized by subject material: algebra -> geometry -> trigonometry -> precalculus -> calculus. I was talking to a Spanish friend about her math courses, and she said that in Spain, they don't have those divisions. She was confused that our math courses would be split up by subject material and said that her's are all together. So my question is, how are mathematical topics of education divided between different classes in Spain, and are those divisions at all equivalent to the way we divide them in the US?
Is this an appropriate question for this site? Thanks.
