  • 2018-19: Algebra II (Honors)

    Course Description: Students will formulate solutions to problems based on applications of mathematical principles. Students will be asked to analyze data, to organize information, and to relate the information to a similar problem to formulate a solution. Students will be expected to apply mathematical skills at an advanced level and to demonstrate an ability to use mathematics in practical applications of life and physical sciences. Students will be expected to write mathematical solutions to problems in a clear and meaningful way. Students will present their work to the class and explain solutions to problems, using the whiteboard, projector, chart paper, and/or graphing calculators. Specific topics of interest include linear, polynomial, rational, irrational, exponential, and logarithmic functions, Systems of equations, sequences and series, and complex numbers.
