SYLLABUS FOR ALGEBRA 2
Textbook Algebra 2 Big Ideas Publisher Larson/Hostetler
Cost $76.00
Grades 1012 Prerequisites: Algebra I and Geometry
The course is a continuation from Algebra II including real and complex numbers, solving linear and quadratic equations and inequalities by different methods, graphing, solving systems of equations and inequalities in several methods, functions, simplifying expressions, analyzing conic sections, and an introduction to logarithms, sequences, and series.
THE COURSE IN ALGEBRA II WILL INCLUDE:

Understanding Rational Exponents

Convert from radical to rational exponents

Evaluate radical expressions

Recognize complex numbers

Simplify complex expressions

Analyzing Polynomial and Rational Expressions

Divide polynomials

Simplify rational expressions

Identifying Functions and Relations

Recognize parent graphs

Combine functions and composition of functions

Use set notation, domain and range, then graph

Understanding Systems of Equations

Model a situation

Solve systems using various methods

Using Quadratic Equations and Functions

Solve by various methods

Graph functions and identify values

Understanding On Conic Sections

Using Exponential And Logarithmic Functions

Graph the functions

Apply inverse relationships

Identifying Equations and Functions

Solve polynomial equations

Graph and identify parts

Solve rational equations

Model a situation

Understanding Discrete Mathematics

Sequences and series

Probability and statistics
Problem solving with the graphing calculator will be emphasized throughout the course. Many of the exercises will require cooperative learning and sharing with other classmates. Each student will be expected to be to class and in their seat on time. Respect is required by each student to his/her peers, teachers, and administration. An interest in the subject matter and a completion of the task is expected by all. Some of the exercises will require cooperative learning and sharing with other classmates but cheating is frowned upon in this class. A student caught cheating will receive a zero for the assignment. Assignments must be turned in daily or upon completion. Late work will not be accepted. Students may use their own calculators to help with their calculations. A unit test will be taken upon the completion of assignments and a review. Unit tests may include chapter tests, nine weeks tests, and semester tests.
