Prerequisites: Algebra 1 Or Saxon Math Placement Test result
Grades: 10, 11
Credit: 10 Credits
Algebra 2 treats topics that are traditionally covered in second-year algebra, and also covers a considerable amount of geometry. Time is spent developing geometric concepts and writing proof outlines. Students completing this course will have studied the equivalent of one semester of informal geometry. Applications in subjects such as physics and chemistry, as well as real-world problems, are also covered. In this course, students will learn; graphical solution of simultaneous equations, basic trigonometric functions, scientific notation, radicals, conic sections, roots of quadratic equations, including complex roots, properties of real numbers, geometric proofs, factoring, inequalities and systems of inequalities, logarithms and antilogarithms, exponential equations, algebra of polynomials, vectors, algebraic word problems, gas law, set theory, probability.
