Algebra II (Accelerated)
This course consists of the rules of algebra with an emphasis on linear and quadratic functions. Areas of study will include understanding and using number and operation concepts with emphasis on the number system. The students will be introduced to styles of proving, evaluating, and simplifying algebraic expressions. There will be emphasis on solving complex or unfamiliar problems using appropriate analysis techniques and reasonable estimation. The students will learn to generalize results from specific applications. Advanced topics of solving rational expressions, transformations, and exponential growth and decay are also included.
Prerequisite: Algebra I; with departmental approval Freshmen may start their math sequence with this course if a satisfactory score has been earned on the department placement test.
