Skyline 3

Learning Recommendations: "C-" or higher in MT200A/B - CC GeometryThis course will cover the essential Algebra 2 concepts. It will work to build skill for those that might not have as strong of a foundation from Algebra 1. This course meets the Algebra 2 requirement for four-year college admission.

General Description: Applied Algebra 2 focuses on the application of mathematics and statistics to the solution of functional problems in fields such as engineering and the applied sciences. The course includes practical application of mathematical concepts such as exponents and systems of equations and inequalities. Students will learn about functions, quadratic equations, conic sections, exponential and logarithmic functions, polynomials, rational functions, sequences and series, probability and trigonometric functions and identities.

Content:

  • Fundamentals of Algebra
  • Systems of equations and inequalities
  • Functions
  • Exponents
  • Quadratic equations
  • Conic sections
  • Exponential and logarithmic functions

Strategies:

Students will learn through a combination of:

  • Collaborative instructional approach
  • Direct instruction
  • Technology enhanced instruction
  • STEM-based projects based on course content

Equipment to be provided by Student: Scientific and graphing calculators are required. If you need to purchase a scientific calculator, the TI-30XIIS is recommended. A TI-brand graphing calculator (not CAS) is the recommended graphing calculator and is used in classroom instruction. If there is a concern about the cost, please see the ASB bookkeeper or your counselor.

Note: Students who complete this course may qualify for college credit at various community and technical college programs. For more information, please visit the CTE Dual Credit page.
