Course Description:

Algebra II is the third course in the systematic study of college-preparatory mathematics. Algebra II is the study of functions. Students will investigate polynomial, rational, quadratics, and other second-degree functions and perform the basic operations on each type. Students will compare and contrast sets of numbers, e.g., irrational, imaginary, and complex. In Algebra II, students will solve a variety of algebraic equations, inequalities, and word problems using the appropriate algorithm(s) for each, including solving with the aid of a graphing calculator where appropriate. Students will correctly use mathematical terms and symbols when speaking and/or writing. Accuracy, neatness, and organization are stressed in this class. The development of higher-order thinking skills is a primary objective, including multi-step problem-solving.
