Grades 10-12                                                              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

• 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.
