I was thinking about math courses for next year, and I do not know what I'm going to take. What is the differences between Alg 3 and Advanced math? And also, and does Trig involve? And I'm too scared of calculus to take it.

You ought to discuss this with your present teacher.

Yeah, I will talk to my counselor about thsi once I go back to school on Monday. I was just thinking about this an hour ago. I ran a search, and found that Alg 3 and Advanced math in highschool is almost exactly the same. Why the heck do they have both then?

Sometimes schools try to sort students into different tracks. I won't explain that. I doubt if a counselor actually knows the difference, in my experience. Often, they try to sell you a class based on how many seats are available in the "class", not your needs. Talk to a math teacher about the differences.
