11515 Algebra 2 Honors
2 semesters, 1 credit per semester
This course adds to the algebra learned in Algebra 1. Topics include absolute value, quadratic, polynomial, logarithmic and exponential functions. The course also covers algebraic fractions, sequences and series. Students apply the math to real situations. This class is faster paced and more challenging than the other Algebra 2 options. Communication and reasoning are important. A TI83+ or TI 84 graphing calculator is required.
11303 Algebra 2 (A level)
2 semesters, 1 credit each semester
This course adds to the algebra learned in Algebra 1. Topics include absolute value, quadratic, polynomial, logarithmic and exponential functions. The course also covers algebraic fractions, sequences and series. Students apply the math to real situations. Communication and reasoning are important. This course is more theoretical and abstract in its approach than 11104. This theory and abstraction is important for students planning to take Precalculus. A TI83+ or TI 84 graphing calculator is required.
Note: May be taken concurrently with 11302 Geometry with recommendation of algebra teacher. Any student taking Algebra 2 (11303) and Chemistry 1 should consider taking them as a block class (11505).
11104 Algebra 2 (B level)
2 semesters, 1 credit each semester
This course adds to the algebra learned in Algebra 1. This class is for students who will not study advanced math, science, or technology in college. Topics include absolute value, quadratic, polynomial, logarithmic and exponential functions. The course also covers algebraic fractions, sequences and series. Students apply the math to real situations. Communication and reasoning are important. A TI83+ or TI 84 graphing calculator is required.
Note: Any student planning to take Calculus as a senior by “double up” Geometry and Algebra 2 should sign up for 11302 Geometry and 11303 Algebra 2 or Geometry/Algebra 2 Block (11312 & 11313).11313/11312 Geometry/ Algebra 2 Block
2 semesters, 2 credits per semester (2 periods)
This course provides an option for students who are “doubling up” in Geometry and Algebra 2. Geometry is completed during the first semester and Algebra 2 Is completed during the second semester. This class takes two periods each semester. The reason for “doubling up” is to prepare students beginning with Algebra 1 freshman year to take an AP or dual credit math elective during their senior year. This plan requires strong math skills and interest in mathematics. It also requires good study skills. The curriculum is identical to 11302 Geometry and 11303 Algebra 2. A TI83+ or TI84 graphing calculator will be required for second semester.
Note: May be taken grade 9 with department chair approval.
