Algebra II

2018 - 2019

G. Garcia Rm. 414 Ext. 1195

Algebra II Tutorials: Tuesday & Thursday 4:15 - 4:45 pm

 

 

Course Description:

This course is designed to teach students to be successful mathematical problem solvers. It is a continuation of algebraic and geometric concepts developed in Algebra I and Geometry. Topics covered will be the properties and attributes of functions (linear, quadratic, square root, rational, exponential, logarithmic, and cubic functions) and the multiple representations of all functions mentioned above.

 

Course Objective:

Students will interpret attributes of functions and their inverses. Students will solve systems of equations and inequalities. They will learn properties and apply matrices to systems of equations. Students will evaluate the effectiveness of various methods used to solve quadratic and square root equations and inequalities. Students will apply exponential and logarithmic equations to real life application problems. Students will explore attributes and transformations of cubic, cube root, and rational equations.
