The difference between Math lev.1 and Math lev.2?

I don't get the difference between Math level 1 and level 2...
Do the universities prefer one over another?
People seem to take Math level 2 more than level 1.
And if I'm not planning to major anything close to Math or Science, is it okay to take Math level 1?

    Math Level I does not allow a calcultor im pretty sure, and tests you on algebra, simple algebraic functions, plane geometry, solid geometry, coordinate geometry, basic trig, elementary stats, and misc. Math level II DOES allow calculators, and has all ^ and includes advanced forms of many of the above, with number theory as well)

    I'm pretty sure Math I does allow calculator use.

    The main difference is that Math II covers pre-calc while Math I does not. Math II has a much better curve, so it's better to take that unless you haven't taken precalc yet. In addition, most colleges prefer Math II.
