ALGEBRA 2: FOUNDATIONS FOR POLYNOMIAL, RATIONAL & LOGARITHMIC FUNCTIONS
Entering grades eight to 10 – Recommended Prerequisites: Students have completed Algebra 1, completed Geometry and are enrolled in Algebra 2 for the 2017-18 school year. This course emphasizes critical thinking, understanding of real-world applications and the use of advanced problem-solving techniques. Students will gain an understanding of functions via a graphical approach to understanding relations, including linear, quadratic, absolute value, exponentials and polynomial rational expressions by defining every relation as a transformation and translation of a parent function. Students should bring a pencil, eraser, small ruler, graph paper and TI-84 calculator daily.
