Algebra 2

Algebra 2 Alphy School

Credit Value: Full Year Course (1 credit)

Anticipated Grade Level(s): 10 and 11

Prerequisites: Satisfactory completion of Geometry and Algebra I.  In exceptional situations with teacher approval, this course can be taken simultaneously with Geometry after the completion of Algebra I.

Course Description: 

This Algebra 2 course is organized around families of functions; linear, quadratic, exponential, logarithmic, radical, and rational functions. Students will learn about these functions, and the rules, techniques, and procedures necessary to manipulate and solve problems with these functions. In conjunction with this technical knowledge, students will develop skills in critical thinking and creative problem solving as they apply these mathematic concepts to real-world situations.
