Course Description

        The Algebra II curriculum is comprised of the following major concepts or ‘Big Ideas’: (1)expressions, equations, and inequalities; (2) polynomial functions and graphs; (3) rational,

irrational, and complex numbers; (4) quadratic equations and inequalities; (5) rational functions and graphs; (6) exponential and logarithmic functions; (7) sequences and series; (8) statistics and probability; and (9) matrices. While knowledge of content is being developed, students are engaged in hands-on and cooperative activities that encourage mathematical reasoning, problem solving, communicating, and making connections. Through these activities students utilize technology such as graphing calculators, computers, and calculator-based lab equipment. In addition, they are encouraged to think more critically through activities that will involve investigations, explorations, and discovery. Finally, evaluations appear in several formats: pencil and paper tests.
