Sorry, no formula problem today.... After Algebra, Trigonometry, and Calculus what would be good to take if one wanted to understand the Sciences, specifically Physics, better? Linear Algebra, another kind of Calculus? Let me know, thanks!

Both linear algebra and differential equations would advance your understanding of the math of physics. It depends on your school's program, but I would recommend linear algebra first. Differential equations relies on it pretty heavily for things like the superposition principle and the whole theory of linear operators. If your school offers "advanced calculus", this is typically another name for real analysis, and I would not recommend it if your interest is physics, rather than mathematics foundations.
