Replace with or replace for?

Sentence: I want to replace algebra (with/for) trigonometry.


If I use the word with, then does that's an I want trigonometry and not algebra? If I use the word for, then does that mean I want algebra and not trigonometry?

Any rules?

  1. with = not algebra

    for = not trig

    However, "for" version is a little awkward.

    "I want to take algebra instead of trigonometry" would be better.
