Welcome to Honors Algebra 2!
What's this class all about?Throughout this course, we will be working on preparation for state and national tests as well as preparation for the courses that follow Honors Algebra 2 in both high school and college. Building on their work with linear, quadratic, and exponential functions, students extend their repertoire of functions to include polynomial, rational, and radical functions. Students work closely with the expressions that define the functions, and continue to expand and hone their abilities to model situations and to solve equations, including solving quadratic equations over the set of complex numbers and solving exponential equations using the properties of logarithms.Our CurriculumOur new curriculum, enVision A|G|A, helps students look at math in new ways, with engaging, relevant, and adaptive content. enVision A|G|A balances conceptual understanding, procedural skills, and application. Students are taught how to become more self-directed and independent learners. The new program uses mathematical modeling, adaptive practice, and individual study plans to make learning more personal and relevant. Our new curriculum helps to create critical thinkers, problem solvers, and collaborators for future jobs and careers.
Key technology features of the program are:
- Embedded interactive problems powered by Desmos
- Mathematical modeling in 3 acts
- Student Companion interactive Worktext
- Adaptive practice powered by Knewton
