This course emphasizes the fundamental algebra concepts and skills assessed by the mandatory state assessment test. After a brief review of 7th and 8th grade pre-algebra concepts, students will begin an extensive study of two-dimensional graphing along with solving linear equations and inequalities in both one and two variables. The use of graphing calculators will be integrated where appropriate, and there will be a strong emphasis on applied problem solving. Other topics will include graphing and solving systems of equations and quadratic equations; operations with polynomials, factoring, rational expressions, exponents and radical expressions.

Algebra 2 is designed to prepare students to use advanced algebraic concepts and skills in mathematics and in other related disciplines.  This course will build upon the concepts taught in Algebra 1 and Geometry and provides further development of the foundation for functions which are linear or quadratic. Continual mathematical emphasis will be placed on problem solving, language and communication, real-world connections, models, and applications.  Technology will be used to introduce and expand upon algebraic concepts. 

Algebra 2 is designed to prepare students to use advanced algebraic concepts and skills in mathematics and in other related disciplines.  This course continues to build upon the concepts taught  Algebra II-A and provides further development of the foundation for functions which are  radical, rational, exponential, and logarithmic.  Continual mathematical emphasis will be placed on problem solving, language and communication, real-world connections, models, and applications.  Technology will be used to introduce and expand upon algebraic concepts.   

geometric figures Geometry consists of the study of figures of zero, one, two, and three dimensions and the relationships between them. Students will study properties and relationships having to do with size, shape, location, direction, and orientation of these figures. Spatial reasoning plays a critical role in geometry; shapes and figures provide ways to represent mathematical situations and to express generalizations about time and spatial relationships.

In this course, students use mathematical models to model and solve real life applied problems involving money, data, change, patterns, music design and science. Students will review and expand the skills learned in Algebra I to help manage their own finances. Along with problem solving, students will be assigned computer spreadsheets to do in-depth studies of such topics as obtaining consumer loans for automobiles and home mortgages, using consumer credit wisely, and learning to budget personal income.
