Algebra II Mathematics
Course Grade Level Description
ALGEBRA II - 1 CREDIT
Algebra II Goal Statement
The goal of Integrated Algebra II is to build upon the concepts taught in Integrated Algebra I and Integrated Geometry while adding new concepts to the students’ repertoire of mathematics. In Integrated Algebra I, students studied the concept of functions in various forms such as linear, quadratic, polynomial, and exponential. Integrated Algebra II continues the study of exponential and logarithmic functions and further enlarges the catalog of function families to include rational and trigonometric functions. In addition to extending the algebra strand, Integrated Algebra 2 extends the numeric and logarithmic ideas of accuracy, error, sequences, and iteration. The topic of conic sections fuses algebra with geometry. Students will also extend their knowledge of univariate statistical applications.
It is also the goal of this model to help students see the connections in the mathematics that they have already learned. For example, students will not only gain an in-depth understanding of circular trigonometry, but will also understand its connections to triangular trigonometry. Throughout Integrated Algebra I & II, students will experience mathematics generally, and algebra in particular, not only as the theoretical study of mathematical patterns and relationships, but also as a language that allows us to make sense of mathematical symbols. Finally, students will develop an understanding that algebraic thinking is an accessible and powerful tool that can be used to model and solve real-world problems.
