Algebra 2 (Advanced Algebra)

As far as possible, students are allowed to investigate algebraic concepts and processes before being introduced to the formulas and symbolic representations. Topics for exploration will include: linear, quadratic, exponential, logarithmic, rational, and irrational functions. You will expand your understanding of the number system to include complex numbers, and you will develop an understanding of the concepts of elementary trigonometry, elementary probability, and sequences and series. You also will learn to model real-world problems using these concepts. A graphing calculator will be required at this level and beyond. Class sessions will take place using a virtual white board (WIZIQ). All class sessions are archived for review by the students or if the student is unable to attend for any reason. Students will need to register with WIZIQ prior to their first class session and will receive a secure invitation from the instructor to attend class sessions. Homework will be assigned and discussed during the class time. Only quizzes and tests will be sent to each student (as well as their parents) as both .docx & .pdf documents and returned to the instructor for evaluation. Students will have an opportunity to correct all assessments to show mastery. It is the responsibility of the parents to supervise their student while completing each assessment. The evaluations will be returned to both the student and parent.
