The curriculum in Algebra II is an equal balance of theoretical algebra and the application of these concepts. The class is sectioned so that the material may be presented at the appropriate pace for each student. There are three major application projects completed by students. We believe that if students cannot see how a concept is useful, they will not give it the attention it deserves. The class focuses on developing the student's abilities to manipulate equations, graph functions and relations, and solve problems by creating mathematical models. The major topics include functions, such as linear, quadratic, cubic, and exponential, rational and irrational expressions, logarithms, quadratic relations, trigonometry, and probability.
