In this high school Algebra 2 course, students will expand on the algebraic content introduced in Algebra 1 and develop more complex knowledge and skills. They will practice skills using self-corrected exercise sets in preparation for chapter tests that gauge their grasp of the material. Lessons include exploratory activities to help students connect with their prior knowledge and explore topics in novel ways. Activities provide varied opportunities to explore real-world applications, dive deeper into concepts with technology, analyze concepts from a historical and cultural perspective, apply math concepts artistically, look at issues in society through a mathematical lens, and explore financial applications of the lesson concepts.
Topics include inequalities, graphs and functions, systems of equations, matrices, polynomial functions and factoring, quadratic equations, logarithmic functions, graphing conic sections, the binomial theorem, and probability.
Enrolled students will have access to learning resources through MyMathLabⓇ including an online textbook, an interactive lecture series of instructional videos aligned with the textbook, chapter test prep videos, student success tips videos, an online solution manual, and a student organizer to guide students through effective study skills including note-taking and practice exercises.
